Parallel Universe Found: Scientists' New Study Reveals Possible Alternate Universe

Regina Avalos

Has a parallel universe been found? Scientists have possibly found a parallel universe after studying data in California. New Scientist was the first to report on the findings of Ranga-Ram Chary. He studied the data of the European Space Agency's Planck telescope at its offices at CalTech in California, and he has released his tentative findings.

Through his studies, he says he has found another universe literally bumping into ours with its own set of physics. This might sound like something out of The X-Files – as Mulder always said "the truth is out there." Television shows have even joked about and poked at the possibility of parallel universes existing next to ours. Anyone remember Sliders?

A parallel universe could definitely mean life does exist elsewhere. This is not television, but the results of serious research conducted over several years. Scientists have discovered more and more out in space in recent years, but this finding is definitely one of the most important.

During his study, Chary found a "mysterious glow" that could be an alternate universe leaking into ours. He made this discovery while studying the data of the cosmic wave background at the edge of our universe. The findings have been compared to bubbles bumping into each other.

"The fine tuning of parameters in the early universe required to reproduce our present day universe suggests that our universe may simply be a region within an eternally inflating super-region. 'Many other regions beyond our observable universe would exist with each such region governed by a different set of physical parameters than the ones we have measured for our universe."

Jens Chluba of the University of Cambridge thinks there is something to Chary's finding. Chluba said, " To explain the signals that Dr Chary found with the cosmological recombination radiation, one needs a large enhancement in the number of [other particles] relative to photons. In the realm of alternative universes, this is entirely possible. I am certain he made every effort to ensure that the analysis is solid. It will be important to carry out an independent analysis and confirm his finding."

However, there are scientists that are less excited about these findings. That is because scientists thought they had found a parallel universe to ours only last year, but it turned out to be our own universe creating the signal. The BICEP2 telescope at the South Pole was at the center of that finding.

David Spergel from Princeton University was involved in debunking the BiCEP2 findings, and he has already shared his thoughts on Chary's research. He said, "I suspect that it would be worth looking into alternative possibilities. The dust properties are more complicated than we have been assuming, and I think that this is a more plausible explanation."

This is not the only research pointing to the existence of a parallel universe. Daily Mail reported last month that the Large Hadron Collider was getting close to finding a parallel universe as well. Data that has been collected since June is now being studied. The LHC is focusing on miniature black holes that could mean that multiple universes exist.

Mir Faizal from the University of Waterloo spoke with Daily Mail about the work the LHC is doing.

"Just as many parallel sheets of paper, which are two dimensional objects (breath and length) can exist in a third dimension (height), parallel universes can also exist in higher dimensions. We predict that gravity can leak into extra dimensions, and if it does, then miniature black holes can be produced at the LHC."
