What is happening in the Universe? Will it continue to expand in the future? A new theory about dark energy is making headway.
Can the Universe face another situation like the one experienced with the Big Bang? Currently, there are competing theories that are directly related to what is expected to happen at some point. A new alternative could make sense after learning how 2 scientists have managed to publish their own personal analysis. In them, a new way could make sense in relation to the phenomenon that catapulted everything we know today about the birth of the Universe.
Currently, we are witnessing an exponential growth of the Universe thanks to what is known as dark energy. Does it have a finite point or, on the contrary, is there no limit to its development? This is the main question that is being studied, since it could happen that there is a limit and that, from there, it shrinks like an accordion. This is a likely option, but the truth is that certain key elements would need to occur for this to happen. What can we learn from the past? Perhaps, therein lies the answer.
Let’s see, therefore, what are the keys to take into account regarding the new theory that could be gaining integers, why it is an interesting option from the scientific point of view and, of course, to what extent the Big Bang can be a reflection of what could happen someday in the Universe. It is, without a doubt, an explosion that would serve as a true reset in habitable places like Earth.
A second Big Bang could make sense as an option to consider
Did you know that 2 intense accelerations have been recorded in the Universe? One took place around the time of the Big Bang, while the other is taking place at exactly this moment. By referring to this temporary period we do not want to scare you and make you believe that life on Earth is in serious danger. With this moment we mean that it is a process that has been repeating itself in the last thousands of years. The record of this second acceleration could be related to the initial one and this is precisely what is being studied.
A study published on February 7 could have the answer to understand what could have happened and what the Universe may face in the future. One of the keys to understanding what NASA is is to follow the multiple lines of research that it manages, but the truth is that, on this occasion, It is about 2 scientists who bet on a process that combines inflation (a model that assumes an increase in the volume of the Universe) with another period of complexity. The combination of both would be one of the approaches that could make sense.
For this, a mathematical model has been created that allows to capture this hypothesis. In this alternative, the presence of dark energy would have a differential role, becoming the key actor for the expansion and contraction of the cosmos. Under this scenario, dark energy would drive the expansive development of the Universe, allowing it to reach a certain size. The deceleration would end up implying a contraction, which would also have a certain inertia that would end up disappearing.
These 2 processes would take place for millions of years worth, so a change in trend could not be observed. And possibly civilization might not witness this natural phenomenon, as it may take place many thousands or millions of years from now. Be that as it may, we are facing a new study that is worth taking into account due to the multiple implications that may lie behind it if it is decided to deepen this line of research.
