Scientists Suggest the Universe Could Begin to Contract in Just 100 Million Years

Scientists Suggest the Universe, Could Begin to Contract, in Just 100 Million Years.

Scientists in the United States think that the universe could begin to shrink toward its eventual demise and rebirth.

.

'Newsweek' reports that the prevailing modern theory for the origin of the universe was a vast expansion of everything from a single point.

This singular event is referred to as the "Big Bang.".

Unlike the beginning, the end of the universe is the subject of multiple theories.

.

"The Big Rip" suggests that the universe will continue to expand until the distance between particles becomes infinite.

.

"The Big Freeze" theorizes that the universe will continue to cool as it expands until all matter is reduced to absolute zero.

.

"The Big Crunch" suggests that the universe will begin to contract and eventually collapse in on itself before exploding once again.

.

'Newsweek' points out that in the latter scenario, the beginning and the end of the universe are tied to one singular event.

.

According to a team of scientists from New York and New Jersey, the transition from expansion to contraction could occur within the next 100 million years.

.

The team believes that the universe's "slow contraction phase" could last for about 1 billion years before resulting in another "Big Bang." .

The team's work was published on April 5 in the journal 'The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.'
