Neil De Grasse Tyson will need to redraft his Cosmos Episodes. Sheldon is not pleased about referencing a redundant scientific theory in his show title. And they have genuine concerns to panic.
A new Quantum Equation Model states that the universe has no beginning. The model thereby disproves the Big Bang Theory, which states that the universe originated 13.8 billion years ago. The theory states that everything in existence originated from a single infinitely dense point or singularity and that the universe officially began expanding in a “Big Bang” after this point. Though the theory was widely credited as matching Einstein’s General Relativity theory , some scientists see it as problematic because the math can explain only what happened immediately after - not at or before the singularity.
“The Big Bang singularity is the most serious problem of general relativity because the laws of physics appear to break down there,”Ahmed Farag Ali, the co-author of the paper, told Phys.org. The paper written by Physicists Ali and Saurya Das resolves this Big Bang singularity with a new model which says the universe has no ending or beginning.
The new model also does not predict a “big crunch” singularity. In general relativity, one possible fate of the universe is that it starts to shrink until it collapses in on itself in a big crunch and becomes an infinitely dense point once again.The new model gives the universe at a finite size and thereby giving it an infinite age.
Though the model will now be analyzed and tested to confirm its veracity, the last few years have seen many popular space theories and assumptions being revised. From Pluto being removed as a planet in 2006 to the possibility that Big Bang theory is false, it proves that scientific investigation needs to be relentless. What if the Big Bang Theory is unequivocally disproved? Can you imagine the social and cultural repercussions of such a revelation?
