the volume and temperature of the universe are theoretically known let's say 10^-6 seconds after the big bang. The conservation of energy says that the energy then must equal the total energy in the universe today. how can this be? we know that there are untold billions of galaxies many with hundreds of billions of stars in them. Einstein's E[equ]mc^2 can estimate the energy from the mass of these stars, not to mention the residual heat of the universe. how could this incredible amount of energy of the universe today, ever equal the energy in something the size of a basketball no matter how hot?
Re: total energy of universe now vs 10^-6 seconds after the big bang?
