The Multiverse: An unknown mystery beyond our understanding

Updated: Jul 17, 2023

Exploring the concept of living in parallel universes lying beyond our current life is intriguing. Using our current astronomy knowledge, we can delve into the notion of a multiverse through the astrophysical lens.

It is essential to have a clear understanding that the Universe is non-static but constantly expanding.

In 1929, the Astronomer Edwin Hubble observed:

"Galaxies that are farther away from us tend to recede at a faster rate.—a discovery that helped pave the way toward our current notion of the Universe, starting with the big bang and expanding ever since."

Then, In 1998, Saul Perlmutter's research on cosmology found out that the farthest supernovas observed seemed less bright than anticipated. Saul's strategy relied on "standard candles" - supernovas that produce the same energy and have equal luminosity.

This approach helps us determine their distance from our position. To view the experiment, please visit this website:

Supernovas, which are massive explosions during the final stages of a star's life, are truly awe-inspiring events in the Universe. They play a crucial role in reinforcing the concept of an accelerating universe.

Now, we can introduce the enigmatic constant responsible for the Universe's acceleration: Dark energy. Despite its prevalence, we don't know how it works. It accounts for 68% of the total mass-energy in the Universe, with 27% attributed to Dark matter and approximately 5% to visible matter.

The Universe apply physical laws here and anywhere in the cosmos.

The most famous is the speed of light, approximately 299.792 Km/s. It's the ultimate limit; no matter how fast you go, you can't surpass a beam of light.

To sum up, observing the light emitted from stars with a recessional velocity equal to or greater than the speed of light seems impossible. It supports the theory that self-contained universes may exist beyond our visual perception.

These universes operate independently, with their physical laws, and as different bubbles in the vast cosmos; who knows?
