Strange particles observed by an experiment in Antarctica could be evidence of an alternative reality where everything is upside down.
IN the Antarctic, things happen at a glacial pace. For a month at a time, he and his colleagues would watch a giant balloon carrying a collection of antennas float high above the ice, scanning over a million square kilometres of the frozen landscape for evidence of high-energy particles arriving from space.
When the experiment returned to the ground after its first flight, it had nothing to show for itself, bar the odd flash of background noise. It was the same story after the second flight more than a year later.
While the balloon was in the sky for the third time where there is cold, dry air, which provides the excellent condition to use it as there is little to no radio noise that could distort its findings. The researchers decided to go over the past data again, particularly those signals dismissed as noise. It was lucky they did. Examined more carefully, one signal seemed to be the signature of a high-energy particle. But it wasn’t what they were looking for. Moreover, it seemed impossible. Rather than bearing down from above, this particle was exploding out of the ground.
NASA scientists have detected evidence of a parallel universe, right next to ours, where all the rules of physics seem to be operating in reverse.
An experiment in the frozen wastes of Antarctica has revealed evidence of a universe born in the same Big Bang as ours but with rules of physics that are completely the opposite
In the theory of parallel universes, when the Big Bang happened, two universes were formed. Although it remains a mystery, it’s a popular concept in films and TV series.
A cosmic ray detection experiment conducted by several Nasa scientists found particles that might be from outside our own universe.
The group of experts was working with NASA’s Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA). ANITA is an instrument that detects ultra-high energy cosmic-ray neutrinos.
These high-energy particles are a million times more powerful than anything we can create here on Earth, and these neutrinos have become a great interest to astrophysicists as they are the only ones that can reach Earth un-attenuated.
According to the news outlet, low-energy neutrinos can pass by our planet with no problem, barely interacting with anything.
Nevertheless, high-energy particles will be stopped by our planet’s solid matter, which is why these high-energy particles are detected coming “down” from space.
The bizarre phenomenon was reported by the NASA scientists, led by Peter Gorham, an experimental particle physicist from the University of Hawaii, as well as the principal investigator of the ANITA.
That strange finding was made in 2016. Since then, all sorts of suggestions rooted in known physics have been put forward to account for the perplexing signal, and all have been ruled out. What’s left is shocking in its implications. Explaining this signal requires the existence of a topsy-turvy universe created in the same big bang as our own and existing in parallel with it.
In this mirror world, positive is negative, left is right and time runs backwards. It is perhaps the most mind-melting idea ever to have emerged from the Antarctic ice. But it might just be true.
