Big Bang question. Conceptual illustration depicting the question of what existed before the Big Bang occurred. According to Einstein, time came into being only with the Big Bang. According to Stephen Hawking, events before the Big Bang are simply not defined, because there is no way to measure what happened before. However, some experts are thinking of white holes, a big crunch and extra-dimensional membranes as pre-big bang events.
