Find a Question:
And what if the universe is not expanding anywhere, and is gaining weight?
Most modern astrophysicists agree in the opinion that the universe is constantly expanding . However, scientists still can not give a precise answer to the question of why it is expanding. In theory, help to answer this question might dark energy that scientists are continuing for a certain energy density is uniformly distributed over the entire space of the universe. But with this version, as it turns out, not everyone agrees.
Very interesting theory put forward a German theoretical physicist and cosmologist Christoph Vetter of the University of Heidelberg, offering a model of the universe, which is not really expanding and gaining more weight.
One of the indicators by which many modern astronomers believe that the universe is expanding, is the effect of the gravitational redshift. That is, when the frequency is changed (in other words, any electromagnetic waves) emitted by some taken separately cosmic light source in parallel with the receding of this source of massive objects (such as stars or black holes). In other words, the farther the object moves away, the longer it becomes the wave and the frequency of these waves on the contrary decreases. Moreover, this effect goes in the red part of the visible spectrum – hence its name.
However, the new Christophe Vetterihom published work offers a different explanation of color phenomena. Vol light emitted atoms depends on their mass. That is, the heavier the electrons, so they are actively moving in space and emit a stronger light. If the total mass of the universe was less than in the past, the light emitted by the atoms would be redder than the light that emit the same atoms now.
The scientist believes that the gradual weight gain is subject to every particle of the universe. And since this process is a set of weight for each particle is proportional, then discover it is physically not possible, because in this case the changes will be relative to each other.
This theory has not yet passed the scientific peer review, and was only added to the largest free electronic archive of scientific publications and articles on the website arXiv.org. Such radical ideas tend to quickly find their rebuttal, although with a few (perhaps even very rare) exceptions, they can change our whole view and knowledge of the universe at the moment.
If the theory is able to find their confirmation, it is bound to cause some very interesting effects. For example, go into oblivion theory about the formation of the universe in the Big Bang, because the new theory would imply that the universe existed before.
