This year's Nobel Prize winner in physics claims that there was a different universe before the Big Bang. We can detect its remains in the space of our universe. Penrose is sure that the formation of universes and their ending are cyclical. What's most interesting, if we discover the secrets of the death of the previous universe, we will also know our future.
Roger Penrose was awarded the Nobel Prize for confirming that black hole formation was consistent with Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity. Despite our still too little knowledge of black holes and the inflation of the Universe, the physicist has a coherent picture of its history and future
Penrose said in an interview with The Telegraph that the Big Bang is only part of a larger cycle of birth and death of consecutive universes that he calls the Aeons. According to him, the remains of the old Universe are Hawking Points, i.e. the remains of black holes. We can find them as points hotter than the surroundings on the microwave background radiation map. They were created as a result of what is known as Hawking radiation, which heated them.
Penrose said these points are evidence of the Conformal Cyclic Cosmology theory which suggests that the Big Bang only marks the end of one universe and the beginning of another universe, also known as the Aeon. This theory is very controversial, however, the Physicist argues that "black holes were once considered controversial but are now part of mainstream science."
The Nobel Prize winner believes that our present universe and the previous ones overlap. This phenomenon of their formation and dying looks like a heartbeat. This offers mankind the chance to explore universes that no longer exist and thereby understand the current development cycle and its inexorable death which will result in the tips dump of another. According to this theory, the Big Bang was only the beginning of our universe, not everything. Stephen Hawking was of a similar opinion.
“We see them. Hawking points are about eight times the diameter of the Moon and are slightly hot regions. There is good evidence that there are at least six such objects, ”Sir Roger Penrose told The Telegraph. The physicist published a research paper on this subject in May this year in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (see here).
