If one day you decide to read a book by Stephen Hawking, get ready, because your brain will be watered throughout your house. If you thought he could not teach us anymore, you're wrong! Not even death can stop him from giving you knowledge.
The theory that Hawking postulated before dying
Do you remember that hundreds of programs and documentaries assured that the universe was infinite? Well, according to the theory of professors Thomas Hertog and Hawking, the universe is finite and not constantly growing.
To understand this we must know the 'Theory of Eternal Inflation'. "The usual theory of eternal inflation predicts that globally our universe is like an infinite fractal, with a mosaic of different pocket universes, separated by an inflating ocean.”
Scientists say that the theory is wrong, because it assumes an even growth of all the multi-universes, but does not consider quantum physics in its calculations. That is, it uses obsolete calculations and considers all universes equal in growth, but if each one has different physical and chemical orders this would be impossible.
The work of Hawking-Hertog uses an idea similar to The Eternal Inflation, but unites concepts of quantum and traditional physics, such as the theory of relativity and gravity to join them with the theory of the strings (a branch that ensures that the universe is formed by small strings that vibrate all the time).
According to experts, the universe is a hologram that is projected in 3D, but mathematically can be placed on a surface to show it to the world (as in the cinema). What they seek is to investigate gravitational waves to understand the movement of the universe and thus determine if other universes exist or not.
With this method they will carry out a simulation that will allow to determine the origin of the universe or universes and the apparent routes that the others could take. (Yes, it hurts our heads too).
