Mnemonic to remember the Big Bang

The Big Bang is without any doubt the most important event that took place in this universe, but when did this took place? Most recent estimates say that this happened 13.7 billion years ago. Scientists believe that there were no atoms yet in the big bang, it was too hot for the protons and electrons to bind together.

How can we remember that the Big Bang occurred 13.7 years ago? Let's make use of the mnemonic major system. We now associate the big bang with the following word:
According to the mnemonic major system, a 't' represents 1, an 'm' 3 and a 'c' 7. Now you simply need to make an association between the Big Bang and the word Atomic and ... this will not be difficult.

And voila, thanks to this mnemonic you will never forget this ever again.
