Molecules did not exist at the time of the Big Bang and not even in the immediate time after. To make molecules one needs atoms but it took about 370.000 years after the Big Bang for the temperature had dropped enough for atoms to be stable.

The current estimate for the initial expansion of the universe dubbed "The big bang" occurred about 13.7 billion years ago. See related link for more information.
the theory states that atoms formed during the big bang (like right as the big bang happened) Protons and neutrons were allowed to form about one second after the Big Bang. El…ectrons joined to nuclei to form permanent atomic bonds about 377,000 years later.
actually, no! The Big Bang is just the event that created the universe. It couldn't have made a sound, because sound didn't exist back then. Answer No, in space, sou…nd cannot be heard. If you popped a bomb into space, you wouldn't hear the explosion. That is because their are too few atoms to jiggle, transmitting the sound to your ear. And at the beginning of the Universe, there were no atoms to jiggle and no space to jiggle in. So the answer is NO, doubly so. Also, the Big Bang was not really an explosion, simply an explosive expansion of spacetime. So the answer is NO, no bang was made by the Big Bang, triply so.
The "big bang" predated the Earth by about 8 billion years. The biggest bang that the Earth had was with a sister planet about 4.7 billion years ago which resulted in the fo…rmation of the moon (and the rotation of the Earth - i.e. day and night).
The energy of the universe was too high for matter to exist. After some of the fundamental forces broke apart, due to the cooling caused by the expansion of the universe, it …became possible for matter to form. Look up big bang primordial nucleosynthesis for more on this topic.
Atoms did not come into being until Recombination, which occurred about 377,000 years after the Big Bang. Hadrons and leptons -- the building blocks of atoms -- came into bein…g about ten seconds after the Big Bang. All matter came, ultimately, from the Big Bang (as best we can presently tell). Thus, the atoms in your body -- as well as atoms 100 billion light years away from us -- came from that source.
That would have been predominantly hydrogen and helium, with trace amounts of lithium and beryllium. We see these ratios in the spectroscopic analysis of light from the most d…istant galaxies, and refer to those ratios of elements as "primordial," meaning those formed closest in time to the beginning of the big bang. The ratios of these primordial elements also happen to be a good indicator for the accuracy of the standard theory of modern cosmology.
No. It is unknown what exactly 'caused' the Big Bang, but it cannot be explained by two atoms coming together.
No, hydrogen was. other heavier elements, starting with helium, were formed by the nuclear fusion of hydrogen nuclei.
No. If the theory is correct, then the big bang caused atoms.
By a nuclear fusion reaction: H + H + 2n ==>> He Yes, this is true. I want, here, to put it into a better picture for common folk. This Bang is similar to the nuclear furnace… that is out Sun. There, hydrogen atoms are fusing to other hydrogen atoms. It happens because gravity strength forces them together. The result is a helium atom(s) plus excess energy. That excess radiation is what blinds you when you try to look at the sun.
Nobody knows. "Why" questions about the Big Bang tend to be unanswerable. There are some theories, but we may very well never know which if any of them is correct. I agree b…ut the big bag seems to contradict many science principals
No one really knows the cause of the big bang as we cannot see any further back than the 3K microwave blackbody radiation, when matter and energy decoupled about 1 to 2 billio…n years after the moment of the big bang. No stars or atoms or even subatomic particles existed at the moment of the big bang. Not even space or time (as we understand them) existed at the moment of the big bang. All that existed at the moment of the big bang was an empty quantum vacuum (which is not allowed by Heisenberg's uncertainty principle). What happened to convert an empty quantum vacuum to our expanding universe full of matter and energy has generated many (mostly untestable) ideas: a quantum vacuum fluctuation produced one ultramassive particle/antiparticle pair, which decayed to less massive particles (losing antimatter in the process due to a broken symmetry) while space expanded dragging the particles with it.one form of string theory proposes infinite numbers of rapidly vibrating membranes of 4 dimensional spacetimes a few millimeters apart in the undetectable extra dimensions. The big bang began when our spacetime membrane and an adjacent spacetime membrane slapped into each other. The shockwave generated in each spacetime membrane is driving a big bang in each.another idea is spacetime foam, with billions (maybe infinite) big bangs happening as space expands dragging the bubble universes apart just faster than it expands the bubble universes (so we can never see any).etc. Also it is very important to realize that the big bang is not just an event in the past starting the expansion, it is a continuing process that is happening now, it is the expansion of space dragging matter and energy along with it.
Hydrogen, helium, and a small amount of lithium. If the BB is an accurate description of the early existence our Universe, then the ratio of hydrogen to helium to deuterium wo…uld be a certain value. The actual ratio matches the prediction of the BB quite well.
There is a good graphic of the timeline for the Big Bang under Graphical Timeline of the Big Bang in wikipedia.org. This suggests the atoms started to become common about 380… 000 years after the Big Bang started. But some atoms (famously carbon) require extreme temperatures and need those temperatures to remain for some (short) time to form the element. The nucleosysnthesis of Carbon requires three Helium nuclei to simultaneously collide and remain so, for carbon to form. Read the articles on Big Bang, (BB) and Carbon nucleosysthesis or triple alpha process for more detail. So carbon formation (for example) had to wait for a supernova to produce the necessary temperatures and for sufficiently long, for the process to occur. So our Solar system is a third generation system. 1st generation, the BB. 2nd generation, condensation of stars and the formation leading to a super nova. 3rd generation, new star systems form, gathering up the debris from the nova explosion. (That's us).
The universe began at what is called the Planck Era when time was smallest unit of time which is 1.35 x's 10 -43 of 1 second and lasted until time was 10 -36 second so Pla…nck era was such a short amount of time 1 /1000000000000000000000000000000000000 of 1 second that light only traveled about 1 /100000000000000000000000000000 of 1 foot during Planck Era . At 1.35 x's 10 -43 second temperature was 179999999999999999999999999999540.6 degrees Fahrenheit is same as 179,000,000 trillion trillion is the same as 179 million X'S 1 trillion and result X'S 1 trillion degrees F. At time 10 -36 second the temperature was 1799999999999999999999999540.6 degrees F is same as 1799 x's 1 trillion and result x's 1 trillion degrees F. There are 5 different "eras" which take place in the first 1/millionth of a second after the universe began. I won't explain them here, look them up on you tube for more information about individual 5 eras that make up total of first 1/million of a second after the universe began. During the Planck Era light only travels about 1 / 1000000000000000000000000000000000000 of 1 foot because it is such a short amount of time. The Inflationary period of big bang universe began at 100 billion x's trillion x' trillion of 1 second after universe began. During inflationary period universe expanded from less than size of 1 atom (microscopic) to at least 0.1691201334439385028 of 1 light year in diameter but could be even bigger (this is same as 994193907579.7344 miles diameter (1 trillion miles) This expansion period began sometime between 10 -35 to 10 -32 second and ended at 10 -12 second. The temperature at time big bang began was the same as I wrote above at time 10 -36 of 1 second. Actual speed of big bang was exactly 3579098067287043840000000000.0000000357909806728704384 miles per hour without partial mile is written as 3579098067287043840000000000 miles per hour and ending size was minimum of 0.1691201334439385028 of 1 light year in diameter. At time 10 -12 second (written 0.000000000001 second) is same as 1 trillionth of a second after universe began the temperature was 1799999999999540.6 degrees F. At time 10 -6 second (written 0.000001 second) is 1 millionth of a second after universe began temperature was 17999999999540.6 degrees F (Fahrenheit) Written and corrected by Toby Benedict
