Accordimg to new study astronomers have found two clouds of gas that formed in the first few minutes after the Big Bang that created our universe. The primordial gas clouds were found to contain only the lightest elements, hydrogen and helium, that were created in the Big Bang. A few hundred million years later, clumps of these gas clouds condensed to form the first stars, which created and dispersed heavier elements throughout the universe. According to study leader Michele Fumagalli, a graduate student at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) it’s actually a very nice confirmation of the theory, because the theory predicts that in the first few minutes after the Big Bang, things like hydrogen and helium were produced and no metals.
So, this is the first time that we have a very strong observation and evidence that indeed this theory is correct. It’s good news for cosmology. The researchers discovered the two primordial gas clouds by analyzing the light from distant quasars, which are the brightest objects in the cosmos.
