A lot has been said about the Big Bang event that is believed to have created the universe about 13.7 billion years ago. The Big Bang event draws its conclusion of the expansion of the universe because of the red-shifting light that are seen from distant galaxies and clusters of galaxies. However, aside from the Big Bang, there has been said to have occurred a super inflation event.

This particular event was said to have taken place for just a split second but was enough to affect the Big Bang event. Cosmologists believe that it contributed more to the universe’s expansion compared to the Big Bag itself.

Inflation is the term used to explain the early expansion of the universe. It is believed that it happened for a short period of time. It is said to have blown the size of the universe into smaller portions that were scattered to millions and millions of location.

It was established as a standard model only in the 1980s. This theory of the expansion of the universe has become quite popular because of its resolution of the nature of the universe, and its use of the grand unified theories. It has likewise made it possible for particle physicists to study cosmology.

Inflation – though short and brief, is said to have made quite an impact in the expansion of the universe we know today.
