The scientist making this startling claim is Roger Penrose. He is an Oxford university scientist. Penrose has claimed that a NASA telescope has discovered cosmic radiation that is OLDER than the Big Bang. Cosmic radiation background was formed in concentric circles. Some of the circles had five rings meaning they had five massive events in their life. The circles are believed to be imprints of violent gravitational forces generated by black holes that EXISTED long before the Big Bang. What does this all mean?
Well it means that maybe scientists and astronomers have been wrong. A lot of us have been taught in school that the Big Bang was the start of the universe. We have been taught that the universe came into existence after the Big Bang. Since this discovery, Penrose believes that there is “something out there.” What is the something? No one really knows. Will the textbooks be altered because of this recent discovery? It seems like if a discovery is made that supports the Big Bang or evolution, school books get altered. Well now a finding has been made that does not support the Big Bang, but how quickly will the school books be altered if at all?
Since a discovery of this magnitude, what are your thoughts? Never before has anything been found to be older than the Big Bang. Where are all the Big Bang supporters at? Will they even show up? All of these things are very interesting because this puts the universe into a new perspective. What else will be found that is older than the universe is believed to be? NASA never seems to disappoint. They will come out and not give any answers about anything and then they will make some of the most impressive discoveries in the universe. Not bad for a organization that usually stands for Never A Straight Answer.
