(ORDO NEWS) — After analyzing the data on the oldest radiation in the entire universe, physicists remained at a loss and suggested that the universe could be closed in a loop.
Imagine that you are going on a space trip. You sail past Mars, Neptune, Pluto, pierce the space of the Milky Way, fly out of the galaxy, then the galactic cluster … What lies ahead?
It is very likely that you will eventually return to the original.
Scientists argue that there is a small possibility that the universe is closed and is a kind of loop. The thing is that the team reanalyzed data on cosmic radiation, which is considered the oldest phenomenon in the entire universe known to us and, perhaps, still remembers the Big Bang. And there was a strange anomaly in the data.
A review of data from the European Space Agency experiment revealed significantly more cases of gravitational lensing of microwave light (which is the cosmic background radiation) than expected. This is especially puzzling because scientists currently cannot explain exactly how gravity could bend this microwave light.
To account for discrepancies in their calculations, the scientists added the A_lens variable to their model of the universe.
But the team acknowledges that it is difficult to reconcile with other known parameters, such as Einstein’s general theory of relativity. And here’s why: The resulting standard deviation of 3.5 sigma is far below the 5 sigma interval that physicists rely on to confirm a theory.
Evidence of a closed system of the universe is also in another document by cosmologists at the University of Cambridge: when they compared their results with other data sets, they deduced the idea of a flat, infinite universe. As a result, they are even more confused.
The confirmation of this theory will create a huge problem for physicists and destroy many of our ideas about the universe. Only time and more research will help us finally get to the bottom of the truth and understand what kind of universe we live in.
