The mysterious glow may be an evidence of alternative universes, says scientist.

The evidence of alternate or parallel universes may have been found.

While mapping the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) or the radiation left over from the origin of universe, an astrophysicist has discovered a mysterious glow.

Astrophysicist Ranga-Ram Chary from U.S. Planck Data Center in California is convinced that this glow may be a sign of another universe that smashed into ours right after the Big Bang. 

"It could also possibly be due to the collision of our Universe with an alternate Universe whose baryon to photon ratio is a factor of around 65 larger than ours.” Chary wrote.

The universe is filled with radiation or CMB and it can be detected in any direction. When Chary cleaned the frequency maps of CMB, created by the observations of Plank satellite, he found patches of sky brighter than they should actually have, almost 4,500 times brighter. The mysterious patches or glow is claimed to be made of a matter which is different from our universe.

After taking out stars, dust, gas and everything out of equation, there should only be left noise. But they were surprised to see ‘unusually strong residual emissions’ which supposedly appeared just a few hundred thousand years after the big bang – when electrons and protons combined to create light-emitting hydrogen.

Chary suggests that “our Universe may simply be a region within an eternally inflating super-region. Many other regions beyond our observable Universe would exist with each such region governed by a different set of physical parameters than the ones we have measured for our Universe.”

The idea of ‘we are one of many other universes’ is very old and to prove it, solid evidences are required. Unfortunatly, they lack so far and most of scientists are not convinced with the latest one as well.

Spots of light detected by Chary “is one of the fingerprints of our own universe. Other universes should leave a different mark." Jens Chluba, from the University of Cambridge, commented.

"To explain the signals that Dr Chary found with the cosmological recombination radiation, one needs a large enhancement in the number of [other particles] relative to photons. In the realm of alternative universes, this is entirely possible."

“It will be important to carry out an independent analysis and confirm his finding.” Chluba said.
