Stephen Hawking’s contribution highlights the presence of multiple universes.
The zest to unveil the presence of the other universes started with the Big Bang theory.
It was the sheer dedication to find answers to the multiple questions about the universe, which kept on exciting the nerves of the renowned astrophysicist, Stephen Hawking. His final work was submitted eight days before his deathbed.
The Stephen Hawking’s research paper was published in the journal named High Energy Physics. Some of the critical points to clinch the scientific article are as follows:
1. The Big Bang
The Big Bang gives an insight into how the universe came into being about 13.8 billion years ago with a period of the cosmic inflation. The whole phenomenon occurred faster than even the speed of the light. It gave rise to all the matter that exists today in some form or the other.
It also suggests the presence of multiple universes. It says the variety of the universes may vary. Sometimes a universe may be without the stars, galaxies or even the matter.
2. Quantum Mechanics
Hertog says that if you want to reconcile the Albert Einstein’s theory of the general relativity (1915) with the quantum mechanics, Big Bang theory is the way to it. He further adds, “Bringing together these two is a very hard problem.”
3. String Theory:
Until now, we believed that we lived in four dimensions, the three being the physical world and the fourth is time.
String theory is a part of the quantum mechanics. It proposes that if the eleven-dimensional strings are vibrated, they give rise to different particles, say for example matter.
The String theory also proposes to describe the Space in two dimensions and the third is a kind of the hologram. The duo Hertog and Hawking further suggested that there is a limit to the no. of multiverses.
It would be an exciting journey to know what makes our universe so unique, through Hawking and Hertog’s Big Bang theory.
