WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- NASA scientists have reportedly detected evidence of a parallel universe.
- The findings were from a cosmic ray detection experiment conducted above Antarctica.
- Evidence suggests the parallel universe may have time running in reverse.
It might sound like something out of science fiction, but in an Antarctica experiment, NASA scientists were able to detect evidence of a parallel universe.
Though the concept of a parallel universe has been around as early as the 1960s, one idea is that the other universe may be just like ours with slight differences or opposite altogether. In this case, the evidence suggests that time may be running backward.
According to a report from the Daily Star, the cosmic ray detection experiment found particles possibly from a parallel universe.
Scientists used a giant balloon to carry ANITA (Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna), high into the dry and frigid air above Antarctica. It was the perfect environment that would have little to no radio noise that would distort its findings. Here, high-energy particles come in a constant “wind” from outer space.
These particles can only be detected coming “down” from space, however, during the team’s experiment, ANITA detected heavier particles (tau neutrinos) coming “up” out of the Earth.
The report from the Daily Star says that these results imply that these heavier particles are actually traveling backward in time, also suggesting evidence of what could be a parallel universe.
The simplest explanation for the phenomenon would be the formation of two universes during the Big Bang — ours and one that appears to have time running reverse.
Experimental particle physicist at the University of Hawaii, principal ANITA investigator Peter Gorham, and lead author on a Cornell University paper that describes the strange phenomenon says that several of these “impossible events” were seen by him and his fellow researchers. Some were skeptical about the events and “not everyone was comfortable with the hypothesis.”
