Research says Multiverse may not be a non-supporter of life

High dark energy levels in Multiverse doesn't mean life can't exist outside our Universe

High dark energy levels in Multiverse doesn't mean life can't exist outside our Universe

Scientists are yet to agree on the existence of a multiverse where our universe is only one of many, but if it does, it might not be as inhospitable to life as previously thought.

"We asked ourselves how much dark energy can there be before life is impossible?" said Pascal Elahi, another research fellow of the same Australian university.

Current theories suggest our universe contains the "perfect" amount of dark energy to sustain life, the Daily Mail reports.

They said that it doesn't matter how much dark energy exists, it could be hundred thousand of our own universe.

This opens the doors to the likelihood that life could be feasible throughout an extensive range of other universes, if they thrived the researchers said. The answer lies in the dark energy and enigmatic force that is expediting the expansion of the universe. "So why is there so much dark energy in our universe?"

"I think we should be looking for a new law of physics to explain this unusual property of our Universe, and the Multiverse theory does little to rescue physicists' discomfort", he added.

The team has published its results in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. These researchers were running a programme called "Evolution and Assembly of Galaxies and their environments". Questions about whether other universes might exist as part of a larger multiverse, and if they could harbour life, are burning issues in modern cosmology.

In their research, dark energy (opposite of gravity) appeared as a crucial factor.

The main theory regarding dark energy asserts that our universe was created with a brief burst that allowed it to expand at a rapid pace.

Some recommended this implied that, in some areas, deep space is still broadening and will continue to grow definitely.

The fact that the universe continues to expand means that it creates a multiverse: it is essentially our own infinite cosmic supply.

"Our simulations showed that the accelerated expansion driven by dark energy has hardly any impact on the birth of stars, and hence places for life to arise". Science was generally convinced that the energy had to be present in very particular quantities in order to support life.but the simulation seems to prove that that's not entirely true.

Should the search for alien life in our universe come up empty-handed, it might be worth checking in on a neighboring universe instead.

We can't go beyond our own universe to find the lives of aliens, but this new knowledge of dark energy may adjust the way we look for ways in the future. It's more special than it needs to be for life.
