Our Universe Might Be Older Than We Thought Previously

The present cosmological model has been challenged in the new study, which is published in the Royal Astronomical Society monthly notice. The new study suggests that the age of the universe is twice the age than the previous estimated age of 13.7 billion years.

This research is focused on studies around our universe and space which throw light on the “impossible early galaxy problem.” The author of the study is Rajendra Gupta, a professor of physics at Ottawa University who created a newly devised model.

This new model indicates that the earlier estimated age of the universe is not the correct estimation, and the universe is double the age, around 26.7 billion years old. Physicists and astronomers traditionally determine the age of the universe by calculating the time from the Big Bang and studying the older stars.

The existence of stars such as Methuselah, which is estimated to be older than the universe’s age, and the existence of other galaxies with advanced levels of evolutionary characteristics has baffled scientists.

These early galaxies have only been observed by scientists after 300 million years post-Big Bang and have shown levels of maturity that can be only associated with billion years of cosmic evolution. This discovery has puzzled scientists which led to new calculations about the age of the universe.

To deal with this new challenge, Gupta has introduced Fritz Zwicky’s theory of tired light, which suggests that redshift of light coming from faraway galaxies creates a gradual loss of energy of photons over enormous cosmic distances.

By permitting this theory to coincide with the ever-expanding universe, Rajendra Gupta proposes a hybrid interpretation of the redshift, which explains the study more accurately. Gupta also incorporated Paul Dirac’s theory of “coupling constants,” a concept of evolution based on the fundamental physics constants that govern particle interactions.
