Introduction - The Big Bang All About Elements The Rest of the Elements The Periodic Table Summary Glossary Works Cited About the author


Introduction - The Big Bang Has anyone been wondering where us humans came from? Well, you came to the right place. We start at a point in time called “The Big Bang”. To start everything off, from a single point, 13.8 billion years ago, came a flash of light. Along with that came the explosion that created the universe. We don’t know if there was even a point in time before the big bang or what caused it, but hopefully, we will find out soon. Scientists are working on it, I promise!


All About Elements Now, for those of you who don’t know, elements are a form of matter. Elements are determined by the number of protons, electrons, and neutrons. The Big Bang itself had only two elements. Those elements were hydrogen and helium, but we had more elements coming‌ and fast.


The Rest of the Elements The stars are beginning to light up. We move forward about 0.2 billion years. We are waiting for the elements to come to us, but they have not come‌ If we travel a little further forward, about 900 million years after The Big Bang, a star explodes and burst into a supernova, casting all of the elements out into the universe. More stars explode, and eventually, The sun will soon explode, Taking Earth with it. The good thing is that it should be in the next 4-5 billion years.

The Periodic Table So, the big bang created 2 elements‌ There are 118 total elements in the periodic table, including hydrogen and helium, and we may discover more in the future, but for 2019, this is all that we know of‌ (To Be Continued???)

Summary Today we learned about how we all started and what made us all. We learned that 13.8 billion years ago, a big flash of light made everything and that stars dying made us possible.
