The so-called ‘Cold-Spot’ in space is now being considered as an indication that alternate worlds, with their own version of reality, exist.
The discovery is so cool in a number of ways.
Imagine if we are not alone in the universe and that we are one of an INFINITE number of parallel universes that house INFINITE versions of ourselves.
This is precisely what the so-called Multiverse theory puts forth, and a new scientific study presents an unprecedented discovery, a so-called ‘Cold Spot’ in space which may prove our universe is just one of the many versions of reality.
The ‘anomaly’ which measures a staggering 1.8 BILLION light years across has left experts baffled.
Previously, experts thought that the region in space was cooler only because it contained around 10,000 galaxies less than other regions in space.
However, a new study thinks otherwise.
According to experts, the humongous anomaly cannot be explained by missing matter, which means that it requires other explanations, with one being EVIDENCE of the existence of other ‘parallel’ universes.
According to Professor Tom Shanks, an astronomer at Durham University and coauthor of the study: We can’t entirely rule out that the Spot is caused by an unlikely fluctuation explained by the standard model of particle physics. But if that isn’t the answer, then there are more exotic explanations.
“Perhaps the most exciting of these is that the Cold Spot was caused by a collision between our universe and another bubble universe. If further, more detailed, analysis proves this to be the case then the Cold Spot might be taken as the first evidence for the multiverse.”
If this is proven to be accurate than it would mean that our universe is home to an infinite number of parallel universes that contain an INFINITE number of realities.
In one of them you could be a football superstar earning millions of dollars, while in another parallel universe, you’d be a chicken.
In an article written in the Guardian, Dr. Stuart Clarke explained that “These uncountable realms sit side by side in higher dimensions that our senses are incapable of perceiving directly. Each alternate universe carries its own different version of reality. There will be one where you wrote this column and I read it… even a really weird one in which Donald Trump uses twitter to spread nothing but amusing cat videos.”
The enigmatic anomaly, aka cold spot, was believed to have been formed more than 13 BILLION years ago, when our universe came into existence.
Astronomers noticed it in 2004 with the help of NASA’s WMAP satellite, and the discovery was later—in 2013—confirmed by the ESA’s Planck mission.
However, the newly proposed study argues that rather than the cold spot acting as a single MASSIVE supervoid in space, galaxies group together around smaller voids, spreading over the region as bubbles.
But experts say that even these cluster galaxies cannot explain why this region in space has lower temperatures.
Researchers say that in order to prove that these clusters are in fact responsible for the anomalous cold spot, a non-standard cosmological model is needed. Furthermore, according to new simulations of the study, there is only a 2% chance that the cold spot formed randomly.
