“First Second After” –Gravitational Waves Unveil Secrets of the Big Bang

Gravitational Waves-LIGO

 

“It is undeniable that we are profoundly puzzled, especially when it comes to the first fraction of a second that followed the Big Bang,” wrote theoretical physicist Dan Hooper, author of The Edge of Time in an email to The Daily Galaxy–Great Discoveries Channel. “I have no doubt that these earliest moments hold incredible secrets, but our universe holds its secrets closely. It is up to us to coax those secrets from its grip, transforming them from mystery into discovery.”

“This newly discovered black hole could be an ancient relic—a primordial black hole—created in the early Universe before the first stars and galaxies formed,” said Eric Thrane from the Monash University School of Physics and Astronomy and Chief Investigator for the ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav).

An ancient  megamerger of 14 relic starbursting galaxies could become the most massive structure in our Universe. “The fact that this is happening so early in the history of the universe poses a formidable challenge to our present-day understanding of the way structures form in the universe,” said Scott Chapman, an astrophysicist at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada, about a massive galaxy clusters found in 2018 that date to times as early as three billion years after the Big Bang, containing stars that formed at even earlier epochs. Each of these galaxies is forming stars between 50 and 1,000 times more quickly than our own Milky Way.
