Get Your Primitive Primate Brain to Understand the Big Bang Better With This Handy Animation

If you've got any time to spare between avoiding getting eaten and making babies.

It’s hard for humans to understand how the universe began, because it all started from a point where the laws of the universe as we know it and the measurements we use to understand it break down. This animation from Kurzgesagt will help you get a better handle on the the parts of the Big Bang that we can currently explain and how the science all points back to the things we can’t. Yet.

Dan is many things, including a game developer, animator, martial artist, and at least semi-professional pancake chef. He lives in North Carolina with Lisa Brown (his wife) and Liz Lemon (his dog), both of whom are the best, and he will never stop reminding The Last Jedi's detractors that Luke Skywalker's pivotal moment in Return of the Jedi was literally throwing his lightsaber away and refusing to fight.
