Big Bang theory wrong? Star older than Universe discovered - threat of ‘scientific crisis’

THE Big Bang theory has been thrown into question after scientists discovered a star which appears to be older than the Universe itself – and it could lead to a “scientific crisis”



www.express.co.uk...


The Universe is thought to have popped into existence some 13.8 billion years ago when an infinitesimal point expanded in just a fraction of a second. The Big Bang theory has stood for the best part of 100 years after Belgian physicist Georges Lemaître first proposed in 1927 the expansion of the Universe could be traced back to a single point. However, the well-accepted model is now under the microscope after a team of researchers found a star which appears to be older than the cosmos.



A star know as “Methuselah star”, or scientifically called HD 140283, is situated about 200 lightyears away and has stumped experts.
Analysis of the star showed that it contained very little iron content, which would suggest that it formed during a period when the iron element was not abundant in the Universe.



Humm....interesting

Well now take that "big bang" science nerds
LOL j/k


What ya think?

Notice the word "appears" ?

This appears to contradict the idea you presented (it appears they've found a potential solution anyways), but if we ignore that and accept your premise as truth then there is the theory that the Universe existed before time. The entire notion boggles my mind.

It is said that Chuck Norris built the hospital he was born in, but that’s Chuck Norris

A star older than the universe itself (and miraculously situated in our own galaxy of all places) is not possible.

If this star is made of ANY element whatsoever, then it is not older than the universe.

If this star is proven to be, say, 18 billion years old, then the universe must be older than that and our time-scale would need amending.

People will be hard to convince either way though once they have a pre conceived idea in their head.

Even just yesterday a poster tried arguing to me that the Guinness book of records is a video game.

How can something that is infinite just pop into existence? Just curious.

There's more than one universe. The star could be an immigrant.

BTW...what is the name of OUR Universe?

The tabloids seem to have picked up a six year old story, and they didn't mention there was an 800 million year margin for error when estimating the star's age. Plus how accurate is the age of the universe really?

The article identifies several possible explanations.

Cool story.

That is just not true.

Chuck Norris gave birth to himself...

Absolutely Incorrect. Both of you. Undeniably, there was a big bang. And Chuck Norris was the prototype for it.

That's hardly revolutionary we estimated the age of the universe from the oldest cluster we could find at that point, now we found something older, big whoop.

That's only basis to question the big bang theory if you got no clue that that theory was indirectly proven by the expansion of the universe and that star doesn't challenge that in any way.

I estimate the Universe's age is 1 second divided by infinity.

1/∞ = age of Universe

That is because I theorize we are inside a black hole and so what we think is "time" is merely an illusion based on relative position.

The Universe just began.
Instead of going into it again in yet another thread I'll just leave it at that for now.

I didn't write the dang article LOL

And are you asking me ?? Where did that question even come from?

What is your theory as to why you think we are in a black hole if you don't mind me asking? I'm interested

It doesn't?

And yes I very much question the big bang theory


Everything they think they know is just a small piece of the bigger picture

Meh...
idk maybe "relatively" LOL

well then they will have to rethink this mater instead of the big bang, surely there is another explanation for this.



HD 140283, is situated about 200 lightyears away

i mean seriously, 200 light years away ? how could it form before the universe?

Not asking you, just replying to your thread. It is a general thought I had while reading it.
Glad I could make you lol.

In this way of thought I'd propose that it is not even there, just like another strange loop. That's why mathematics will always lead to a road end.
