Moscow, 24/08/2014 (The People Online) – We do not live in the first and only universe. There was another universe, at other times, before it was born to us. At least that is what one of the cosmological hypotheses discussed in the scientific community indicates, and a group of physicists says they have found traces of that extinct world, Sputnik emphasizes.
Modern cosmology is based on the hypothesis that our universe was born from a phenomenon known as the Big Bang or the 'big bang & # 39 ;. According to this theory, all matter that surrounds us, energy, even the laws of physics and time itself, originated from a small point that was then expanded to take the current size of space. Modern measurements are situated around 13,800 million years ago, which would be the age of our universe.
To date, there are two hypotheses that concentrate the discussion with most cosmologists. The first is that our universe was born & # 39; from scratch & # 39; of singularity, a state in which the components of matter energy were infinitely compressed. Another hypothesis, called complicated cyclic cosmology (CCC), indicates that our universe is reborn & # 39; again and again through infinite cycles of expansion (Big Bang) and contraction (Big Implosion), like a balloon that is blown up again and again.
This latter theory is particularly defended by the prominent mathematical physicist at the University of Oxford, Roger Penrose, along with his colleagues who say & # 39; traces & # 39; of that previous universe.
One of the oldest phenomena in the universe that we can detect is the so-called Microwave Cosmic Radiation (RCM). This remnant of the Big Bang fills all familiar space and is the same that creates the recognizable image of black and white spots on our televisions when it is not connected to an antenna, or the peculiar noise of the radio when it does not pick up terrestrial signals.
In an article, recently published in the arXiv scientific journal, Roger Penrose, of the University of Oxford, along with the mathematician of the State University of New York, Daniel An, and the theoretical physicist at the University of Warsaw Krzysztof Meissner, argued that In the RCM radiation it is possible to detect traces of the previous universe.
We are not talking about singularity or real objects, but about the Hawking radiation that has expanded these holes during all its time, "Roger Penrose told the scientific journal Live Science.
In the recently published new article, the group of physicists says that they have analyzed data from two other observatories, Planck Surveyor and BICEP2, who are also studying Cosmic Microwave radiation. According to his calculations, the results of these two observatories only confirm the footprint previously detected by WMAP.
