The vast amounts of energy and radiation released from the explosion grew to several thousand times the size of the Sun in a fraction of a second. Within the first second the blast had become swirls of intense energy and basic subatomic particles such as quarks were formed. (E = mc²) The mass continued to expand.

After 500 000 years the universe had cooled to 3 000۫K and more complex particles such as protons, neutrons and electrons were created. This led to the formation of the two simplest elements, hydrogen and helium.
