The James Webb Telescope Kills the Big Bang Theory and Upends Our Understanding of the Universe!
We've always wondered about life out there, but what if we told you that the possibility of more life forms has become surer than ever it's so powerful that it might have just shattered our understanding of the universe we've all heard about how the new James Webb Telescope is kind of like a time machine because it can look back to the early formation of the universe six shocking Galaxies, have been discovered that defy all explanations the James Webb Telescope has identified six galaxies that exist half a billion years after the big bang that is up to 10 times bigger than the Milky Way galaxy.
Michio Kaku a world-renowned physicist in this video discusses the James Webb telescope's clearest image in history the shocking discovery of building a galaxy is no easy feat it took the universe over 350 million years to finally form the very first galaxies they were pretty small and took their sweet time to become the galaxies we know today but get this scientist have just discovered six ancient galaxies that are breaking all the rules these galaxies are thought to have formed just 500 million years after the big bang, yet they contain populations of tens or even hundreds of billions of stars.
Michio Kaku is an American theoretical physicist who is just as puzzled by this groundbreaking discovery as the whole of all those who make the heavens the life study. Like Kaku, scientists, astronomers, and physicists recognize that everything we know about the universe is being changed by the exploration of the James Webb Space Telescope a $10 project launched by NASA in December 2021.
The James Webb Telescope has spotted six colossal galaxies that are each roughly the same size as our very own Milky Way these galaxies were formed way too early in the history of our universe the mass of stars within some Cosmic objects is not just a few times larger than our sun but several billion times larger and if that's not enough to make your jaw drop to get this one of these objects could have a mass of stars up to a whopping 100 billion times larger than our sun to put it into perspective the Milky Way home to our beloved Sun has a mass of stars that's a mere 60 billion times that of our sun this discovery is truly mind-boggling and as Erica Nelson one of the scientists who worked on this project put its bananas echoing her sentiments
Michio believes that huge gaps in our knowledge are about to be addressed with these new findings this latest Discovery feels like a puzzle piece you don't know where to fit the team of astronomers who spotted these galaxies has dubbed them Universe Breakers because if they are indeed real, our entire understanding of Galaxy formation will need to be Revisited this discovery could call into question some of the basic rules of cosmology so get ready for some exciting New Revelations about the Cosmos, cosmology.
Have you ever wondered how the universe, which was once a minuscule fraction of an inch across expanded to its colossal size today thE widely accepted Big Bang model tells us that the Universe was born as a blazingly hot and dense point over 13.7 billion years ago but what happened next to shape the universe into what it is now. Imagine the universe as a baby born from a single point and expanding at an incredible rate OF SPEED during its first growth spur doubling in size over 90 times as it grew, matter formed and the universe cooled, then the universe experienced a magical moment called recombination where electrons combined with nuclei to form atoms and the universe became transparent then the Dark Ages followed a period of darkness before stars and galaxies emerged interestingly 150 and 400 million years later the cosmos started to come out of this darkness in a period known as re-ionization fast forward 9 billion years after the big bang and our solar system sprang to life except these new galaxies appear to be roughly 13.5 billion years old this means they began forming somewhere around the Dark Ages the galaxies are so large that they conflict with 99.9 percent of cosmological models that scientists curated with a lot of hard work this indicates that either the models will need to be changed or the scientific theory of Galaxy formation needs to be completely revaluated rethinking the Dark Ages, the discovery of such large galaxies so soon after the big bang raises the possibility that the Dark Ages weren't all that dark after all and that star formation began far sooner than previously believed, thanks to the hard work of scientists, we now know that the Dark Ages lasted from about 380 000 to 150 million years after the big bang and that the first Stars began to form around 180 million years after the big bang marking the end of the Dark Ages but for the universe to exist as it does today hundreds of thousands of new stars would need to be created each year by these new galaxies, but there's not much at stake except our entire understanding of this wonderfully complex Cosmos we call home before this discovery the farthest distant Galaxy ever discovered by Hubble was gnz11, but we'll circle back to that in a minute and break down its features for you too for now, Webb's discoveries could fundamentally change our understanding of cosmology and challenge everything we ever knew maybe more studies on the Milky Way already hinted at how soon stars came into being after the big bang maybe the discoveries of these galaxies were just about a matter of time before the Mikey Way.
This discovery is bound to surprise you scientists have just revealed the precise age of our very own galaxy, The Milky Way and the results are shocking according to a new study published in the prestigious journal Nature some parts of the Milky Way formed just 800 million years after the big bang astronomers used a survey of almost a quarter of a million stars to clock the development of the Milky Way splitting the spiral disc into two populations the younger inner disc of which our sun is a part and the older thicker disc that extends further out they discovered that the thick disc likely started forming around 13 billion years ago, just 800 million years after the big bang while the Intergalactic Halo formed around 2 billion years later but that's not all turns out the inner Halo came into existence after the Milky Way merged with another dwarf Galaxy Gaia Enceladus Galaxy between 8 and 11 billion years ago while this discovery sheds light on the formation of our galaxy scientists wish the six new galaxies didn't defy all logic, let's break down what else we know about the these enigmas the puzzling galaxies oh yeah, these galaxies are packing more heat than we ever thought possible, but that's not all the the density of matter in these galaxies is so mind-bogglingly high that it's making cosmologists break out in a cold sweat and if that wasn't enough, the amount of normal matter in the galaxies is at odds with the amount of dark matter in their Halos it's like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole, only this Peg is made of a material we don't fully understand yet to make matters worse the research team has been busy scouring their work for errors, but so far the data and their interpretation of it have remained solid the idea of rewriting all history books, as we know, definitely hat sounds like a doozy it’s no wonder researchers are hoping they made a human error instead of accepting how off the mark our knowledge has been although the majority of these celestial objects appear to be galaxies at this time scientists have not ruled out the possibility that some of them may actually be gigantic quasars or supermassive black holes except this raises more questions than answers as the amount of mass concentrated in one place is extremely difficult to explain so early in the universe's history if these objects are indeed supermassive black holes it could mean that our understanding of black holes needs to be revised supermassive black holes are already known to exist at the centers of galaxies but the idea that they could form so early in the universe's history challenges current theories now before this new discovery blew us away the jwst and Hubble had already discovered something older than we'd ever imagined glass z13 and gnz11 last year jws found the oldest Galaxy ever seen in the universe called glass z13 and it dates back to a mind-boggling 300 million years after the big bang, that's right we're talking about a Galaxy that is over 13 billion years old, this discovery is beyond anything astronomers could have imagined, and it could rewrite the opening chapters of cosmic history as we know it.
