What Types of Particles Did the Big Bang Create and How Did Protons and Neutrons Form To Create Hydrogen?

In the immediate aftermath of the initial rapid “vavoom”, or big bang that started it all, very little matter existed.

Scientists say the big bang was not an explosion, but a burst or surge.

Immediately after, subatomic particles combined to create protons and neutrons.

Protons and neutrons form the nucleus of atoms.

The first atoms were of hydrogen and helium.

From the basic interactions of these two elements, all other matter, including you, was formed.
