Could a multiverse be hospitable to life?

Post by Dragon on Mon May 14, 2018 5:49 pm

A Multiverse—where our Universe is only one of many—might not be as inhospitable to life as previously thought, according to new research.

Questions about whether other universes might exist as part of a larger Multiverse, and if they could harbour life, are burning issues in modern cosmology.

Now new research led by Durham University, UK, and Australia's University of Sydney, Western Sydney University and the University of Western Australia, has shown that life could potentially be common throughout the Multiverse, if it exists.

The key to this, the researchers say, is dark energy, a mysterious "force" that is accelerating the expansion of the Universe.

Artistic impression of a Multiverse -- where our Universe is only one of many. According to the research varying amounts of dark energy have little effect on star formation. This raises the prospect of life in other universes -- if the Multiverse exists.

A Multiverse – where our Universe would be only one of many – might not be as inhospitable to life as previously thought, according to new research. The key to this, the researchers say, is dark energy, a mysterious “force” that is accelerating the expansion of the Universe.

Using huge computer simulations of the cosmos the study found that adding dark energy would have a modest impact upon star and planet formation. This opens up the prospect that life could be possible throughout a wider range of other universes, if they exist, the researchers said.

Have a deep intuitive knowing that the multiverses exist too
