There are some stories of how the Universe was made but the scientific and widely accepted explanation is the Big Bang Theory. A step by step explanation from this article wrote that scientists were unsure on what the picture was before the Big Bang Theory. However, it was said that the universe was just a single point in space. After the explosion or the growth spurt of our universe, it doubled its size to at least 90 times. For the first hundreds of years, it was still too hot for light to shine. When matter cooled down there was an era of recombination then stars and other bright objects were formed. Then our solar system was born. And so on and so forth. Scientists are still gathering more information about the creation and evolution of the Universe.

If you want to know more detailed information about the Origins of the Universe, you can watch this video from National Geographic.

A more fun way to study about the Universe is through the Big Bang Theory (series) soundtrack, you can listen to it here.

In the late 1920s, the American astronomer Edwin Hubble made a very interesting and important discovery. Hubble made observations that he interpreted as showing that distant stars and galaxies are receding from Earth in every direction. Moreover, the velocities of recession increase in proportion with distance, a discovery that has been confirmed by numerous and repeated measurements since Hubble's time. The implication of these findings is that the universe is expanding.

The universe of 100 years ago was simple: eternal, unchanging, consisting of a single galaxy, containing a few million visible stars. The picture today is more complete and much richer. The cosmos began 13.7 billion years ago with the big bang. A fraction of a second after the beginning, the universe was a hot, formless soup of the most elementary particles, quarks, and leptons. As it expanded and cooled, a layer-on-layer of structure developed: neutrons and protons, atomic nuclei, atoms, stars, galaxies, clusters of galaxies, and finally superclusters. The observable part of the universe is now inhabited by 100 billion galaxies, each containing 100 billion stars and probably a similar number of planets. 

This is a good video to watch to grasp the origin of the universe.

The origin of the universe is one of the greatest mysteries of science. For centuries, humans have been trying to understand how and why our universe came into existence. We now know that the universe began with a rapid expansion known as the hot Big Bang event occurs 13.7billions of years ago, and created all matter and energy in the universe. However, we still do not know what caused this initial expansion or what existed before it. Scientists are continuing to explore and study this mystery in an effort to gain a better understanding of our origins.

There was a time when scientists allowed Earth was at the center of the macrocosm. As late as the 1920s, we didn't realize that our world was just one of numerous in a vast macrocosm.  Only latterly did we fete that the other worlds were running down from us.

For centuries, humans have been trying to answer the question of how the universe was created. From ancient Greek philosophers to modern astrophysicists, people have been fascinated by the idea of understanding the origin of our universe.

Theories about the origin of the universe range from religious explanations to scientific ones. Some believe that a divine being created it, while others think that it was formed through natural processes. The most widely accepted scientific theory is that of Big Bang cosmology, which states that everything in existence originated from a single point in space and time billions of years ago.

This theory has revolutionized our understanding of how and why the universe exists and has led to further exploration into its structure and evolution over time. Despite its success in explaining many aspects of our universe, there are still many unknowns about its origin and future that scientists continue to investigate today.
