Strange times we’re living in, huh? I mean, the world is essentially in shambles right now with the coronavirus pandemic.
On top of that, there are apparently deadly wasps that are roaming around parts of North America.
The idea that we’re living in a simulation has floated around but a new study from NASA might indicate that we’re all living in an incredibly long episode of Black Mirror after all.
According to The New York Post, NASA scientists may have found a parallel universe where the rules of physics completely contrast our own.
This discovery arrived after NASA conducted a cosmic ray experiment. This led them to find particles that they said could have possibly been created in the Big Bang.
They used ANITA (Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna) that was carried through a balloon where they found high-energy particles coming down from space.
Apparently, they also detected high energy particles, tau neutrinos, that were coming up from Earth. This led the scientist to believe they may have found evidence suggesting a parallel universe exists.
This should be taken with a grain of salt, though, as scientists have shown scepticism surrounding the discovery.
Principal ANITA investigator Peter Gorham said the only real possibility of the tau neutrino’s behaviour is if it passed through Earth first and turned into a different particle before changing back again.
“Not everyone was comfortable with the hypothesis,” he said.
“We’re left with the most exciting or most boring possibilities,” Ibrahim Safa, another scientist studying this case, said.
If this is true, the most simple explanation is that two universes were created during the Big Bang 13.8 Billion years ago.
The one we’re living in and the other one where time is running backward.
