Sir Roger Penrose won this year Nobel Prize in Physics his extensive work in finding black holes.
Daily Telegraphin in an interview, Penrose says that before the initial explosion, there was another universe. As evidence of this, there are six more so-called Hawking points visible in the present universe.
These hot spots are about eight times the size of the Moon. They are “dead” black holes and they come from an earlier universe.
Before the initial explosion, there was “something”
Professor Stephen Hawkingin according to the theory, black holes “leak” radiation and eventually disappear completely. This can take a really long time, longer than our current universe has existed.
These six dead black holes from the previous universe are still visible, says Penrose.
– The initial explosion was not the beginning of everything. Before that, there was something, says Penrose.
– Our universe is expanding and expanding. According to my theory, all mass will eventually disappear and sometime in the future there will be a new initial explosion.
Thus, according to Penrose, six such Hawking points are currently known, for which there is strong evidence.
Penrose’s theory has been disputed, but several scholars believe that the universe repeats the eternal cycle. It expands, then it collapses and another new explosion follows again.
The idea came on the way to the subway
Penrose points out that the idea of black holes as well was initially controversial. In 1964, Penrose, in his late thirties, was walking to a tube station on the way to Birkbeck College in London when he got the idea.
When a celestial body becomes too large, its own attraction shortens it into a pile so dense that all hitherto known laws of physics cease to be valid. A so-called singularity arises.
It is a distortion of space-time in which some quantity is infinitely large, so it does not behave according to the known laws of physics.
In the terms of current physics, singularity cannot be described because there are no known laws of nature that apply when the values of physical quantities are infinitely large.
Penrose’s theory seems common sense, somewhere the material of the initial explosion must have come. But it leaves humanity to be plagued by a still fundamental question. Where did that very first primary explosion come from? Where did it all start?
