Travel to a parallel universe is possible

Why NASA thinks there could be a parallel universe

During balloon measurements in Antarctica, researchers discovered high-energy particles that allow them only one conclusion: there must be a parallel universe in which time runs backwards.

If science hits the headlines in the British and American tabloids, something must have happened. Both "Express" as well as "The Sun" and the "New York Post" reported what NASA researchers claim to have discovered: According to them, there could be a second, parallel universe in which time runs backwards.

Peter Gorham from the University of Hawaii and his colleagues from NASA came to this conclusion after evaluating several measurements in 2016 and 2017. The team collected data in Antarctica with antenna-studded balloons. The cold, clear air and the lack of civilization make it possible to take sensitive measurements with the high and far flying aerial device without background noise.

But their evaluations showed data that could not be correct: When looking for particles from the universe, the group thought after the second balloon flight that the signals were acoustic waste. After the third, they reevaluated the first data and all came to the same conclusion. They recorded high-energy particles created during the Big Bang. However, these did not hit Earth from space, but were triggered there and went the opposite way, as "New Scientist" reports.

Cern expansion in January 2019

New hunt for big bang secrets: expansion at Cern

New CERN particle accelerator planned: An artist's representation shows the tube of the gigantic facility.

The 100-kilometer ring-shaped tunnel would partly run under Lake Geneva.

A total of around CHF 27 billion is estimated for the Future Circular Collider (FCC).

The existing LHC particle accelerator of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is already being trimmed to maximum performance by the Hilumi LHC project.

Oliver Brüning, deputy project manager for the expansion of the particle accelerator at Cern, described the project as follows: “It's like renovating a house. You install a new heating system that is more efficient, but to heat more you need more wood and a correspondingly larger cellar. "

The accelerator currently creates a billion proton collisions per second. But that was not enough for the physicists. You want to hit at least five billion collisions. For this, on the one hand, more protons should circulate, and the collision should in future be focused on eight instead of 16 micrometers in order to increase the chance of collisions.

Completely newly developed cables are in a workshop at Cern: Because the new magnets are supposed to generate stronger magnetic fields, the Cern specialists first had to develop cables that could withstand them. They also created cables made of new materials to transport electricity from the socket to the magnets, in this case Magnesium2Borite, a material that is superconductive even at high temperatures.

Employees are in a workshop at Cern. Many CERN inventions are common property today, as components in cell phones, in diagnostic processes such as computed tomography, in semiconductor production and in tumor treatment. And of course “the mother of all inventions”: the World Wide Web developed at CERN, the Internet.

Because all other scientific attempts at explanation have fizzled out, the researchers now believe that the existence of a parallel universe is possible, that after the Big Bang this - roughly speaking - developed in the other direction, and that everything is negative in it. Now the theory is discussed, which has already found prominent contradiction in specialist circles.

Useless moon knowledge

Useless moon knowledge

Not only since the moon landing 50 years ago has some facts and useless knowledge about the earth's satellite accumulated. “Bluewin” has compiled a selection.

The weather on the moon is not for the sensitive: When the sun hits the surface, temperatures rise to 130 degrees Celsius. On the dark side, on the other hand, it gets as cold as minus 160 degrees.

It is dead quiet on the moon: Because the atmosphere is very thin, it does not transmit any sound waves. So you couldn't talk to each other on the moon - unless you first solve the problem of surviving without a helmet.

Because of the lack of an atmosphere, many asteroids hit the moon instead of burning up in its atmosphere. Hundreds of thousands of craters cover the surface.

These craters are also responsible for the dark spots that many reveal a face. According to Christian tradition, this man in the moon is said to be Cain, who was literally shot on the moon after the murder of his brother Abel.

People in Asian countries don't recognize a man, but a rabbit in the moon. A moon rover that was carried up by the Chinese probe Chang’e-3 is therefore called the “Jade Hare”.

The moon has always inspired artists. The following quote has come down to us from the writer Mark Twain: "Everyone is a moon and has a dark side that he never shows anyone."

The much-cited “dark side of the moon” doesn't even exist. So every part of the moon is illuminated by the sun in the course of a month.

"The Dark Side Of The Moon", the milestone album by the rock band Pink Floyd, does its best to keep the misconception of an ever dark side of the moon alive.
