Just as it is possible to travel all around the Earth's surface without encountering any edge, the Big Bang would not be the beginning of space-time anymore than on Earth the North Pole would represent the beginning of the surface of the earth. "There is nothing south of the South Pole, so there was nothing around before the Big Bang", Hawking said.

He recently sat down with Neil Degrasse Tyson on his "Star Talk" show and it didn't take long for the talk to get really deep, down to the very origin of the universe but also what came before it.

Comparing the distorted time with Ancient Greek philosopher Euclid's theory of space-time, Hawking said, "One can regard imaginary and real time beginning at the South Pole". This means that the state of the universe, after the Big Bang, will not depend on anything that may have happened before, because the deterministic laws that govern the universe will break down in the Big Bang. Just as there is nothing south of a southernmost point, time cannot exist before the Big Bang.

During one of his lectures, Hawking had stated that there are no observable consequences from what occurred before the Big Bang.




When asked "what was around before the Big Bang", Hawking was very uncompromising, simply answering that there was "nothing". Those events are not defined, as they couldn't be measured and there's no way for them to be measured.

About 13.7 billion years ago, our Universe was born in a extremely dense point of heat and energy, no bigger than an atom.

The German's theory implies the existence of black holes in the universe. It also disobeys the Law of Conservation of Matter as the physicist believes that the amount of matter present in the universe before and after the Big Bang could be different as well. This subatomic ball, known as a singularity, was not inside the Universe, it was the Universe. He was speaking on the occasion of the TV show, "StarTalk", that will be aired this Sunday on the National Geographic Channel.

The world-renowned British scientist Stephen Hawking says he knows what happened before the Big Bang and the birth of the universe, the BNR reported.
