Shape of the universe: study could force us to rethink everything we know about the cosmos #Astrophysics #Space #ExperimentalData #Cosmology
Is the universe actually a sphere or some other closed shape?!!
A new paper suggests we may need to change how we think about the universe down to the Big Bang. Via the Conversation:
Now our new paper, published in Nature Astronomy, has come to a conclusion that may unleash a crisis in cosmology – if confirmed. We show that the shape of the universe may actually be curved rather than flat, as previously thought – with a probability larger than 99%. In a curved universe, no matter which direction you travel in, you will end up at the starting point – just like on a sphere. Though the universe has four dimensions, including time.
