TickeTac.comThe brothers,  Igor and Grichka  Bogdanov in  the theater production  Bing Bang. take us on a fantastic journey to explore the possibility of a Big Bang theory in the creation of the universe.

First they ask the audience to vote for the existance of the big bang theory. Next with music and sketches they introduce us to scientists  such as Alexander Friedmann, Albert Einstein and the four musketeers, young gifted people aged 13 to 17 who lived  in the 1920s and who were  at the origin of the discovery of the Big Bang theory They  also discussed the disappearance of dinosaurs, over 65 million years,ago and that of Neanderthals.

All this  is portrayed through  poetry, songs, imitations. The audience is invited to go on a trip in an imaginery time machine.

On stage, they reconstruct the Hooker telescope  and the rocket Ariane 5 to discover the origin of the discovery of galaxies,  and to photograph the baby universe to know the universe as  thirteen billion miles and eight hundred and twenty million years ago.They also had an astronomical antenna whereby A. Penzias and R. Wilson could hear the echo of the Big Bang. The audience listened  through special effects as they were taken on an imaginery journey.

Gravitational waves detected — and that’s creating waves in science

Einstein’s concepts

 

“Gravitational waves were predicted by Einstein in his general theory of relativity in 1915, the theory that proposed space-time as a concept. The waves are a distortion of space-time.

However, in order for us to detect them, they needed to be created by a mammoth event — for example, the collision of two black holes.

 

Black holes are a holy grail of the gravitational wave concept. To date, we’d been able only to see their aftereffects. Black holes themselves were a conjecture.

 

“There’s been a lot of indirect evidence for their existence,” says Shoemaker, an expert in black holes. “But this is the first time we actually detect two black holes merging and we know the only thing that predicts that (is) gravitational radiation, (which) comes from a binary black hole merging. There’s no other way we could have seen that but gravitationally.”

The production is enjoyable as well as being educational and gives us much to think about.
