Before the Big Bang, when our universe began expanding rapidly, there may have been a previous universe that we took over.
Sir Roger Penrose, a mathematician and physicist at the University of Oxford who just won the Nobel Prize for work in the field of black holes, suggested that our universe was not the first to exist. The telegraph relationships. And, he added, it won’t even be the last.
“The Big Bang was not the beginning,” Penrose said, according to the newspaper. “There was something before the Big Bang and that something is what we will have in our future.”
According to Penrose, a universe will continue to expand until all of its matter eventually decays. And then, in its place, a new one will start.
“We have a universe that expands and expands, and all the mass decays, and in this crazy theory of mine, that distant future becomes the Big Bang of another aeon,”
Evidence of his idea are what Penrose calls Hawking Point: the corpses of black holes from before the Big Bang that survived their universes but are now at the end of their lives, losing radiation as they vanish into thin air.
“So our Big Bang started with something that was the distant future of an earlier aeon and there would be similar black holes evaporating away, via Hawking evaporation,” added Penrose, “and producing these points in the sky. , which I call Hawking Points. “
