Research says Multiverse may not be a non-supporter of life

Research says Multiverse may not be a non-supporter of life

However scientists at Durham University claim these heavenly bodies would still have actually formed even if a universe had 100 times the dark energy that ours does.

Professor Richard Bower of Durham University's Institute for Computational Cosmology stated that "The formation of stars in a universe is a battle between the attraction of gravity and the repulsion of dark energy". "So why such a paltry amount of dark energy in our universe?" But given the levels of dark energy in our Universe, there is likely a natural law we have yet to discover.

According to an article posted on livescience.com, an worldwide tea of researchers find out that Alien may exist in the parallel universe. One of the questions posed by this hypothesis is whether other Universes could harbour life.

It challenges the belief that our universe has been lucky to have only a small amount of dark energy that enabled it to host life, among many universes that could not.

Cosmologists from the Durham University in the United Kingdom and Australia's University of Sydney, Western Sydney University, and the University of Western Australia used huge computer simulations of our observed universe to examine how different levels of dark energy might affect the development of life.

"I think we should look for a new physical law to explain this unusual characteristic of our universe, and the theory of multiverses has little effect on the discomfort of saving physicists".




As mentioned above, the team managed to use complex computer simulations to arrive at these conclusions - especially the EAGLE (evolution and galaxy assembly and its environment) project.

The research suggests that if we reside in the Multiverse, we should observe about 50 times the amount of dark energy that we now do.

The findings will be published across two papers in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. There is just about enough dark energy to allow the formation of planets and suns as well as planets like Earth where life is possible.

The fact that the universe continues to expand means that it creates multiverses: an essentially endless supply of universes much like our own.

In general, it is clear that our understanding of dark energy is lacking. Science was generally convinced that the energy had to be present in very particular quantities in order to support life.but the simulation seems to prove that that's not entirely true.

This opens the doors to the likelihood that life could be feasible throughout an extensive range of other universes, if they thrived the researchers said.
