I just want to confirm if this was how the Big Bang Happened--at least as understood by many scientists. I find it incredible. How about you?

According to this theory, in the beginning, there was no matter, just plain void. Then this nothingness condensed into a single, tiny spot; and it decided to explode!

That explosion produced protons, neutrons, and electrons which flowed outward at incredible speed throughout empty space.

Then these atomic parts--protons, neutrons, and electrons-- formed themselves into typical atomic structures of mutually orbiting hydrogen and helium atoms.

Gradually, the outward-racing atoms are said to have begun circling one another, producing gas clouds which then pushed together into stars.

This theory was proposed by one George Gamow a scientist as well as fiction writer.

Questions:
1. Can you supply the other important components of this theory if any?
2. What caused the explosion since there was nothing?
3.How did these atoms form into stars and ultimately the universe?
4. What laws if any support or voids this theory?

Been covered fairly recently
Problems with the Big Bang theory starts with about the same questions you do. If after reading it over you have further questions you can try again.

Note that you have your facts about the big bang very wrong. Singh's "The Big Bang" is a reasonably simple book that covers it better than it can be here. It should be in a library near you by now.

You might also try googling to see what you find before you ask people to type up a lot that is already available.

Some aspects of the BB are difficult to wrap your head around so after you've gotten some basics you could ask some clarifying questions. There are a couple of very generous physicists around here that may have time to help.
