Goodbye Big Bang, hello black hole? A new theory of the universe's creation
Could the famed "Big Bang" theory need a revision? A group of theoretical physicists suppose the birth of the universe could have happened
after a four-dimensional star collapsed into a black hole and ejected debris.
Before getting into their findings, let's just preface this by saying nobody knows anything for sure. Humans obviously weren't around at the time the
universe began. The standard theory is that the universe grew from an infinitely dense point or singularity, but who knows what was there before?
"For all physicists know, dragons could have come flying out of the singularity," stated Niayesh Afshordi, an astrophysicist with the Perimeter
Institute for Theoretical Physics in Canada who co-authored the new study.
So what are the limitations of the Big Bang theory? The singularity is one of them. Also, it's hard to predict why it would have produced a universe
that has an almost uniform temperature, because the age of our universe (about 13.8 billion years) does not give enough time—as far as we can
tell—to reach a temperature equilibrium.
Most cosmologists say the universe must have been expanding faster than the speed of light for this to happen, but Ashford says even that theory has
problems: "The Big Bang was so chaotic, it's not clear there would have been even a small homogenous patch for inflation to start working
It's all Greek to me.
