Scattered Universe Is Moving Towards a Starting Point: Scientists

Scientists believe that the universe has been expanding since the Big Bang about 13.8 billion years ago, but due to the reverse expansion of space and time, it could rapidly change “significantly” and lead to a major contraction. Which, of course, made the video an overnight sensation.

Before you start packing your things and thinking about ways to move into the new universe, know that when scientists measure these things, they do so on a scale of millions of years.

According to a new study published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, “the expansion of the universe could end surprisingly soon.”

But soon means “within the next 65 million years.”

Researcher Paul Steinhardt told LiveScience that “65 million years ago, the asteroid Chuckzulb hit the Earth and caused the extinction of dinosaurs on Earth.”

“On a cosmic scale, 65 million years is significantly shorter,” he said.

According to Steinhard and fellow researchers Andre Cosman and Anna Ejas, once the expansion is over, the universe will start shrinking again, and all the matter and energy in it will be trapped in a small volume.

The article goes on to say that every star we see in the night sky will collide with a giant black hole whose horizon spans billions of light-years.

When all this will happen, and even if it does, it all depends on measuring the force that scientists understand only dimly.

Dark energy is the name given to a mysterious force that is accelerating over time rather than slowing down the expansion of the universe.

But according to Steinhard, director of the Princeton Center for Theoretical Sciences at Princeton University in New Jersey, dark energy is not a force that scientists have ever believed in, but a real substance they call “quintessence.”

This matter can be depleted, weakening the pressure for the expansion of the universe and giving way to gravity which over time will lead to incredibly dense, and impossibly hot uniformity.

Some theories predict that as the universe shrinks, time may begin to run backwards.

It should be noted, however, that these predictions, such as the prediction of a collapsing universe by scientists, may remain purely theoretical long after mankind has followed the path of the dinosaurs.
