The internet is buzzing right now with news that NASA discovered a parallel Universe. In fact “parallel universe” is trending on twitter right now. Nothing could be further from the truth. Another PR campaign from NASA to keep their projects funded. The discovery was actually much simpler.
The discovery of cosmic ray-like particles streaming from the ice was at first dismissed by scientists as background noise. Mind you, this was initially detected as far back as 2014 and 2016 by NASA’s Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA). The question was raised because the phenomenon appears to contradict the standard model of particle physics.
What the news is running with is that some scientists have simply proposed the particles could be flowing into our world from a parallel universe where the fundamentals of physics are different to ours.
According to New Scientist, a parallel universe where everything is mirrored could have been created during the Big Bang. The big bang theory that is, a theory stacked on top of a theory, now.
Neil Turok of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada, has proposed the particles are right-handed neutrinos moving back in time. In other words, this is potentially a parallel universe moving time in reverse.
Neutrinos are subatomic particles with a neutral charge and a mass smaller than any other known elementary particle. The particles were created in the Big Bang and were wrongly thought for a long time to travel faster than the speed of light.
The theory of a parallel universe is making headlines, and NASA gets more free press to keep their $22.6 Billion dollars per year on God knows what. Call me a skeptic, but when’s the last time we went to the moon? The 60’s?
What has NASA produced that has directly benefited mankind or helped us explore other planets? Anything? Nope. NADA. It’s because they’re NADA space agency.
