The Fourth Copernican Revolution: “Our Universe May Be One Patch of Space and Time In a Infinite Archipelago” (Weekend Feature)

Multiverse

 

Is our part of the universe a tiny and atypical fragment of a vast archipelago of universes? “By the end of this century, we should be be able to ask whether or not we live in a multiverse, and how much variety its constituent “universes” display. The answer to this question will determine how we should interpret the “biofriendly” universe in which we live (sharing it with any aliens with whom we might one day make contact),” according to  Lord Martin Rees, Great Britain’s premier cosmologist and astrophysicist.

The Most Massive Objects in the Modern Universe –Primordial Relics of the Cosmic Microwave Background

Merging Galaxies of the Early Universe

 

“In Big Bang cosmology, the cosmic microwave background (CMB) is in some sense a map of fluctuations thought to be linked to variations in the matter density of the primordial expansion of the universe,” explains Harvard astronomer Matthew Ashby in an email to The Daily Galaxy about the formation of massive galaxy clusters from the cosmic web of filaments, nodes, and voids, with the nodes being clusters of galaxies. “Their amplitude is very small. But, because they trace fluctuations in the primordial density of matter, they will grow over cosmic time through the action of gravity.  And for that reason, massive coherent structures such as galaxy cluster SPT2349-56, the most massive objects in the modern Universe, are of great interest, being among the very first to form (that is, collapse) out of those ancient fluctuations.

3-D Views of Interstellar Supernova “Cavities” Reveal Explosive Star-forming Regions

Orion Nebula

 

“3D data will revolutionize our understanding of star formation in our galaxy by allowing us to chart where stars fall in relation to dense gas,” wrote Harvard astrophysicist Michael Foley in an email to The Daily Galaxy. “By doing so, we can study a number of outstanding questions, such as how stellar feedback (the ways in which stars affect their environments throughout their lives) either inhibits or promotes new star formation. Using 3D data, we have found that many famous star-forming regions in our solar neighborhood, such as Orion, fall on the edges of bubbles of gas and dust swept up by supernova explosions.
