The universe could be about to collapse and everything in it - including us - will be compressed into a small, hard ball.

The process may already have started somewhere in our cosmos and is eating away at the rest of the universe, according to theoretical physicists.

The mind-bending concept has been around for a while, but now researchers in Denmark claim they have proven it is possible with mathematical equations.

I would like to say, that the source may have dramatised this a bit. But still, worth a post!



I am nowhere near qualified enough to further explain this stuff. But the short story is this:


The universe will collapse on itself and become a fiery tennis ball for somebody.





Future looks bright.

Like they have been trying to tell us in movies......Ahhhhhgh...Its just a movie right? All rubbish.
right?

Very cool. Yet another reason to love like there's no tomorrow - embrace life and all that we value. Be grateful. Enjoy. Don't take anything for granted.

Oooo...now that would be cool to watch happen. Wonder where the center of collapse would occur. Would be a very interesting way to go out having it centered on Earth me thinks. If we are all going to die I would say that may be one of the most interesting ways to go....being able to watch the entire universe collapse in on us.

You know what I don't think we would even notice.

I think we will just be doing something then bang. We don't exist anymore.


I tell you what though!!

For all those people who think we are "cans" for souls. NONE OF THAT WILL MATTER. Because if the universe is destroyed, everything is destroyed. Aliens and so forth will be gone to.

Life will cease to exist entirely. There would be no after life or anything. Right?

Maybe the collapse has already started somewhere in the universe and right now it is eating its way into the rest of the universe.
Maybe a collapsed is starting right now right here.
Or maybe it will start far away from here in a billion years.
We do not know.

And just probably maybe they're talking #.

I hope they are talking #

I don't really want the universe to collapse lol

I'm sure they have a back-up Hardrive in the Matrix...we'll live

I've heard it referred to as the big crunch. Opposite of the big bang. But it is probably billions of years from happening if it ever does. This is a case where I will say a theory is just that. And theoretical physics boarders on magic anyway. Abra Cadabra. I created as I speak. ( The magic words translated to English)

More likely than ever? the article says otherwise:


'Maybe a collapsed is starting right now right here. Or maybe it will start far away from here in a billion years. We do not know.’


Yeah this is pretty much doom porn. Besides the most likely candidate for the end of the universe is the big freeze, which doesn't get much attention because it's not exciting or 'imminent'.

The scientists have run through all the figures and come to the conclusion that it is likely to happen, could have already started and therefore it's only a matter of time.

However in their calculations they've also considered it may not happen. So, let's not worry about the universe collapsing and let's start worrying about the things we can change.

we need a new forum..."doom porn" would be a good title. it might become to big to moderate, but it would fill in for those nights when "duck dynasty" or "swamp people" are not on TV

YES!!! THIS ^


S&F to the OP for "winning" the ultimate doom-porn news.

And I thought I overthought things. Maybe these researchers should go out and get drunk so they can actually kill a few braincells so they can accomplish something useful.

The laws of physics, and current cosmological observations, say "no".

The only way that the universe could collapse in on itself is through gravitational contraction. However, the universe is expanding, and the rate of that expansion is increasing, so the gravitational effect is becoming less and less as time goes on.

Most likely scenario is The Big Rip, where the universe eventually is destroyed, right down to the atom, as the expansion results in the fabric of space ripping itself apart.

Well....
It just COULD be, the universe as such, really IS
endles, unlimited and that the matter is expanding
from the B.B.

"Whats outside"

If they dont KNOW what the "universe" IS,
then how can they calculate...

ALL speculations...

Yes, we do know that it is expanding. This article might help: How Do Scientists Know the Universe is Expanding?

As for the rate of expansion, and the fact that it is increasing, you need to know some physics to understand how we are able to observe that, but here's a thread I did in 2012 on the Big Rip: A Prediction you can bank on: It's the End of the Universe As We Know It…, and I think I explained it decently enough without bogging you down in the maths.

The article states that this "phase transition" is similar to what happens when water boils, and turns into steam, and that a bubble of ultra-dense Higgs field could form at a certain point in the universe, at any time now.

I am pretty sure that if an ultra-dense bubble were to form in the Higgs field, which supposedly permeates the entire universe, then it would form around one of the pre-existing high density objects, like a super massive black hole or something. This is because, unlike in the example of boiling water, density ,or the amount of mass objects possess, has a direct effect on the amount of gravity they exert on other objects. This is why there is much gravitational shear force exerted on objects which pass close to or indeed into the event horizons of, black holes.

It seems to me, that since super massive black holes already appear to be examples of ultra density, that if there were to be an area of space time, around which such a bubble would form, it would be easier for it to happen at a location where space time was already significantly warped, as that is where the action is, where the weaknesses already are. Let us assume that we are in a submarine for a moment. The submarine has been struck by the blast wave from a detonating depth charge, and some seams have started to split. If a larger charge detonates at the same distance from the hull, and in the same position relative to the hull, over the area already damaged by the first blast, one would expect the first seams to fully open up, to be those which had already begun to spew seawater onto our boots after the first explosion.

The same thing applies here I think. It would make no sense for a bubble of ultra density to form in the middle of no where, with no dense objects in it, barely any space time curvature at all to speak of. That would make about as much sense as a supernova issuing from the space between two stars, tens of light years apart.
