US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — And if ? What if the first trace of a parallel universe had been discovered in Antarctica? This is a hypothesis put forward by a NASA team, after the detection of mysterious cosmic rays.
We call her ANITA. She is the Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna . A probe tracking the cosmic rays which strike the Earth permanently. Sent into the air by a balloon, she works in the skies of Antarctica, where no radio wave is likely to interfere with her research. Since 2006, Peter Gorham has directed the analyzes of the data thus collected.
However, in 2006 and 2014, the physicist, specialist in experimental particles at the University of Hawaii, and his team observed unusual particles: instead of hitting the ice from the sky, they sprang from the ground! “What we saw was something that looked like a cosmic ray, as seen in the reflection of the ice cap, but it was not reflected. It was as if the cosmic ray had come out of the ice itself, “said Peter Gorham to the New Scientist .
Big Bang and mirror world
How to explain this anomaly? One hypothesis – the most disappointing – is that of a simple machine bug. The other explanations – for example, that of neutrinos having crossed the planet to exit by the South Pole – proved to be unsatisfactory.
There remains an option: explore the options outside the usual frameworks – or think outside the box, in the language of Gorham. And among these, this one: the particles come from a parallel universe created during the Big Bang. Unbelievable ? Not that much: in this mirror universe, everything is reversed. Not only space, but also time. Hence this mysterious displacement of the cosmic rays observed.
But beware of hasty conclusions. In an article published on Science Alert , Peter Gorham made a point of clarifying the information: “Once we have exhausted all the possible explanations given by the standard model of particle physics, we can consider the ideas that push the limits. We are not there yet, and even less to the point of appealing to parallel universes!”
The mystery remains, therefore. But the conclusions of these new observations are there to remind us of the vastness still to be discovered around us. Are we alone in the universe ? The question is more open than ever.
