Big Bang Theory

Cosmic creation idea espoused by science guys (and science gals)? or… 2006 release by the rock band Styx? or… An accidental launch of a whole pile fireworks in the woods behind my sister’s house a few summers back? or… ?

Whatever one might believe, it sure makes a nice desktop image :^) And in a rare move, a pair of alternate renders are up for grabs too!

    I am a specialist on theoretical nuclear matter research. I found the images really splendid! Congratulations! By the way, is it possible I use the images in the web site of the meeting 4th International Workshop on Astronomy and Relativistic Astrophysics? I think people will appreciate the images. all the best

    Thanks for the good word Cesar, glad you like the image too!

    Please feel free to use the image on your site, it’s a pleasure to see my works in other places along the internet dirt road.

    I’m kind of amazed at this one in particular; it generates a ton of hits and is generally the most visited post here at RM.

    I loved your image ‘BigBang-Theory_alt2_19’ and wondered ifyou would allow me to use the image as a CD cover.It is a music CD featuring songs I have composed and sung. It is a very low budget operation and I distribute my CDs among students and people who like my music.
    Look fwd to hearing from you,

    Would love to use this image in an internal email communication about data migration! Not the most exciting topic, but your image should help people stay awake or at leaset meditate on it for a while. I will acknowledge you if this is OK?

    And people are still interested in this image. :)

    I’d like to use it on my blog for an article on nuclear physics if it’s still possible. I’ll add a link to it, so people will know it’s from this site. Hope that’s okay…
