Research says Multiverse may not be a non-supporter of life

Research says Multiverse may not be a non-supporter of life

Should the search for alien life in our universe come up empty-handed, it might be worth checking in on a neighboring universe instead.

A Masters student from the Durham's Institute for Computational Cosmology, Jaime Salcido said that the theory of multiverse indicates our universe to be just one among many others. Scientists have previously thought that such parallel universes, if they exist, would have to meet an extremely strict set of criteria to allow for the formation of stars, galaxies and life-fostering planets like those seen in our own universe. Prevailing theories say that there is a certain amount of dark energy in the universe and that amount is ideal for existence of life.

It challenges the belief that our universe has been lucky to have only a small amount of dark energy that enabled it to host life, among many universes that could not.

Previous theories recommended our universe has the best quantity of dark energy, which acts versus gravity and is making the universes broaden at a sped up rate. And, dark energy might be the common thread between these universes.

The dark energy issue has been a hot topic of research by scientists and it has become clearer and clearer that we do not have a firm grasp of its function - it turns out that we may be wrong about the limitations of energy everywhere.

"I think we should look for a new physical law to explain this odd characteristic of our universe, and the theory of multiverses has little effect on the discomfort of saving physicists".

Two closely related research papers were published recently by scientists from Durham University. These universes will be filled with Earth-like planets, society, and even Alien life that may be very similar to ours.

"We have found in our simulations that universes with much more dark energy than ours can happily form stars".

The fact that the universe continues to expand means that it creates multiverses: an essentially endless supply of universes much like our own. This idea proves that life can exist anywhere in the Multiverse.

This opens the doors to the likelihood that life could be feasible throughout an extensive range of other universes, if they thrived the researchers said.
