Multiverse Beckons Hospitability to Life

A group of scientists studying a mysterious force known as dark energy claim that alien life could exist in other universes. Modern cosmology poses questions like do other universes exist as a part of larger multiverse and could it nurture life.

Cosmologists from the Durham University in the United Kingdom and Australia's University of Sydney, Western Sydney University, and the University of Western Australia used huge computer simulations of our observed universe to examine how different levels of dark energy might affect the development of life.

It is widely believed that dark matter exists far more than we have in the universe, so that stars and planets will not be able to form - but scientists at Durham University may claim that it may not be so simple, and the lives of aliens This may be made possible. Appending massive amounts would lead to such a speedy growth that it would lessen the matter before any stars, planets or life could form.

"For many physicists, the unexplained but seemingly special amount of dark energy in our Universe is a frustrating puzzle,"Jaime Salcido, a postgraduate student from Durham University, said in a press release".

Using state-of-the-art computer simulations, a research team led by Durham University, Western Sydney University, and the Universities of Sydney and Western Australia has found that adding dark energy, up to a few hundred times the amount observed in our Universe, would actually have a modest impact upon star and planet formation.

"We asked ourselves how much dark energy can there be before life is impossible?".

The university humanity evolved in was like a winning lottery ticket among many versions of the cosmos that could not sustain life.

In a bid to have complete control of the streaming market, Netflix has revealed that the bulk of its spending in 2018 will be on its originals.

We would expect to see up to 50 times more in our cosmos based on the multiverse theory, they said. But given the levels of dark energy in our Universe, there is likely a natural law we have yet to discover.

The previously proposed theory of dark energy shows that our universe has "perfect" dark energy - a resistance against gravity, which is responsible for making the universe expand at a faster rate.

"I think we should look for a new physical law to explain this unusual characteristic of our universe, and the theory of multiverses has little effect on the discomfort of saving physicists". Numerous researchers have long argued that the idea is not possible to test.

The main theory about dark energy is that our universe was created by a short burst, and this explosion made it expand rapidly.

Professor Stephen Hawking's final research paper, completed just ten days before he died in March 2018, suggested our universe is one of many - each with similar physical states.

It can not be seen directly with telescopes, but astronomers know it to be out there because of its gravitational effects on known matter.
