The Big Bang theory is currently the most popular scientific theory for the origin of the universe. It describes how the universe emerged from an enormously dense and hot state about 13.7 billion years ago and how the universe is still expanding from that point. This theory helps scientists explain the formation of all the galaxies, stars, and planets.
