The Big Bang Of BlueGrass

Theoretical physicists use the term "Big Bang" to describe the process of the creation of the universe.

We cannot really picture such an event, but I can show you a recently-declassified photograph which shows the first quarter of a millionth of a second of an early nuclear test in the desert near Alamogordo, New Mexico. The nascent fireball, some eight meters across, is just beginning to vaporize the metal tower that housed it. Notice its irregularity. It is not a perfect sphere as we might expect, but already shows differing textures and surfaces. I’ll get back to that point later.
