Beyond Our Universe: “Worlds Utterly Unlike Anything We Can Imagine” (Weekend Feature)

The Multiverse

 

Is the universe we see – stars, moons, planets, clusters of galaxies – a small, accidental tip of an infinite cosmic iceberg? During the epoch of inflation, thought to have been triggered by the phase transition that marked the end of the grand unification at approximately 10^−36 seconds after the Big Bang, the accelerating expansion of space was far more dramatic than in today’s universe. Inflation lasted for only 10^-32 seconds, but the universe expanded at an absolutely staggering rate, increasing in size by a factor of 10^26. During this period, no objects – even two elementary particles – remained close enough to one another for long enough to interact. (more…)

Supervoids of the Universe – Mystery of the Vast CMB Cold Spot 

 

Bootes Void

 

The beauty of the Universe is that there’s always a mystery. Scientists might have an explanation for the existence of an especially cold region in the afterglow, known as the CMB Cold Spot. Its origin has been a mystery so far but might be attributed to the largest absence of galaxies ever discovered.

LIGO Observations -Are They Actually Exotic Objects that Contain Dark Energy Instead of a Singularity?

 

GEODEs

 

Are LIGO gravitational wave observations of merging black holes an illusion? In 1966, Erast Gliner, a young physicist at the Ioffe Physico-Technical Institute in Leningrad, proposed a hypothesis that very large stars should collapse into what could now be called Generic Objects of Dark Energy (GEODEs). GEODEs appear to be black holes when viewed from the outside, but unlike black holes, they contain dark energy instead of a singularity.
