Not the Big Bang theory.  

 

I teach the Big Bang theory at high school (not the TV series!). 

One line of evidence supporting the theory is the detection of the microwave background radiation. 

This radiation makes for a beautiful scientific map. It looks similar to the image above… except it’s rust from a BBQ cover! 

Talk about abstraction upon abstraction.
