New research stemming from a collaboration between Australia's University of Sydney, Western Sydney University, the University of Western Australia, andDurham University, UK, suggests that even if the Multiverse hypothesis is true, life could still exist outside of the Universe humans reside in.
"For many physicists, the unexplained but seemingly special amount of dark energy in our Universe is a frustrating puzzle", said Jaime Salcido from Durham University in Britain.
"We found in the simulation that the universe, which is much darker than our energy, can happily form stars".
It was generally understood that any more presence of dark matter than the amount present in our universe would create such rapid expansion that stars and planets wouldn't be able to form - but scientists at Durham University claim that it might not be so simple, and that alien life may be possible as a result.
Utilizing massive computer simulations of the cosmos, the recent research has discovered that appending dark energy up to a few hundred times the amount observed in our Universe, would actually possess an unpretentious influence upon star and planet formation.
The search for alien life has always been a priority for many scientists and enthusiasts alike, and the fact that this alien life is quite likely to exist outside of our universe is comforting in a way.
The university humanity evolved in was like a winning lottery ticket among many versions of the cosmos that could not sustain life.
Their findings are released in 2 associated documents in the journal Regular monthly Notifications of the Royal Astronomical Society.
"The formation of stars in a universe is a battle between the attraction of gravity, and the repulsion of dark energy", saidRichard Bower of Durham University.
"I think we should look for a new physical law to explain this odd characteristic of our universe, and the theory of multiverses has little effect on the discomfort of saving physicists". And they find out that Dark energy plays an important role to form such conditions. Numerous researchers have long argued that the idea is not possible to test.
Professor Stephen Hawking's final research paper, completed just ten days before he died in March 2018, suggested our universe is one of many - each with similar physical states.
The European Space Agency says: 'Shine a torch in a completely dark room, and you will see only what the torch illuminates.
Just five per cent the observable universe consists of known material such as atoms and subatomic particles.
