US, WASHINGTON (NEWS OBSERVATORY) — Scientists have suggested that we live inside a huge cosmic bubble. If such a theory is correct, then this will explain many of the processes that occur in nature.
The Universe is a relatively calm place, but recent observations have shown that it begins to expand rapidly. For a long time, experts also try to agree on different estimates that relate to the speed of expansion of the Universe.
This speed is called the Hubble constant. Experts believe that it is influenced by certain phenomena – dark energy and matter.
The explanation for the rather rapid expansion of the Universe may be that we live in a cosmic bubble, which has not such a high density. This is what physicist Lucas Lombriser says.
Such a hypothesis was first proposed a couple of decades ago, while taking into account studies made earlier.
At the moment, this is only a hypothesis. Scientists have yet to make a lot of models and conduct thorough research in order to confirm the theory proposed by Lombraiser.
It is worth noting that it will be possible to find the answer to the question of the existence of a cosmic bubble using gravitational-wave astronomy, which studies pulsation in the tissues of time and space.
