8. White Holes
White holes can’t be studied because they don’t necessarily exist. They are just a hypothetical region of space-time, but if you think about it, if there are black holes, why not white holes too?? Theoretically they would be the opposite of black holes and constitute a major portion of the mysterious dark matter that makes up most of the universe. (Or not, because maybe even dark matter doesn’t exist!).

7. Ekpyrotic Universe
Also known as the “cyclic universe” this theory was proposed by Professors Justin Khoury, Burt A Ovrut and several others in 2001. They propose that the universe was created by a hot big bang, produced by the collision of a brane, again b-r-a-n-e in space with another plane. Our universe is one of a pair of universes that collided, unlike the Big Bang theory which believes the universe began from a singularity.
The effect of the collision resets the universe.

6. The Universe is a Giant Supercomputer
The German scientist, Konrad Zuse, is credited with building the first programmable computer and to everyone’s surprise, in 1967 he proposed that the entire universe is a computer!! So did Ed Fredkin! They thought the universe could be a cellular automaton that uses black and white grids. They argued that the universe has a set of rules and precision such as planetary movements and natural cycles that make it seem like our universe is a programmed system.

5. Bullet-Time Theory
The Bullet Time effect is also known as the “frozen moment” and makes it seem like time has been suspended. Made super famous in the movie The Matrix, it is an expensive slow motion effect!! You can see complex karate kicks and flying bullets, shattering glass, all kinds of things so that the scene moves at a normal pace while other things are slowed. Ever since the Matrix, it has become a popular expression.

4. Biological SETI
SETI stands for the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence and is a project that is doing just that, using technology like radio telescopes and signal detectors to search for alien life. There have been many SETI projects over the years but perhaps the most famous is the Wow! SIgnal. When Jerry Ehman, a project volunteer witnessed a strange signal by the telescope he circled the printout and and scribbled Wow! In red pen.

3. Simulation Theory
Also called the simulation hypothesis, this theory proposes that our reality is actually an artificial simulation run by an advanced supercomputer.
Many scientists, and pioneers in technology such as Elon Musk, argue that what we experience as reality is actually a giant computer simulation created by a more sophisticated intelligence.

2. The Universe is a Hologram
An international study has provided some evidence that our universe could actually be a very large hologram! Physicists studying the aftereffects of the bing bang trying to explain certain irregularities, determined that they could explain it as a hologram where all information that makes up our 3D reality (plus time) is contained on a 2D surface. It’s like watching a 3D film on a 2D screen. We can see height, width, and depth even though the back of things is no longer there.

1. We Are Living in a Black Hole
In theory, time began when the Big Bang happened 13.8 billion years ago. But before that? Usually you say there was nothing, but for some scientists there wasn’t nothing. There was an enormously dense speck or seed, trillions of times smaller than any we are able to observe. This particle most likely came from a black hole.
Like I mentioned before there may be more than one universe, creating black holes.

Universe: Beyond the Millennium - Creation

Universe: Beyond the Millennium is a television series observing astronomical phenomena, research, and theories on the universe and its origins.

Narrated by John Hurt.

The documentary premiered in 1999 and presents an overview of the universe as humans understood it at that time, and how we think it will evolve in the next millennium. Using 3D computer generated graphics, the series features animated sequences that offer insight into the Big Bang theory and the anatomy of the sun.

Creation, for years scientists have speculated about the beginning of the universe. Some astronomers support the Big Bang theory while others purport the Steady State theory. Which one is correct? Telescopes that tune into natural heat radiation coming from space are helping scientists find answers to these and other questions.

One day our universe will cool and die, our only escape maybe to risk a flight into a different universe. Perhaps the greatest question facing the human race is to discover where we came from, and find out what is our ultimate fate. Every culture, every age, has asked that question and tried answering it.

The True Nature Of Time - New Documentary

The True Nature Of Time - New Documentary 2016
Theories of science have ignored time… until now. A new idea reveals how it created the Universe – and you, writes Robert Matthews.

Time: it rules our lives, and we all wish we had more of it. Businesses make money out of it, and scientists can measure it with astonishing accuracy. Earlier this year, American researchers unveiled an atomic clock accurate to better than one second since the Big Bang 14 billion years ago.

But what, exactly, is time? Despite its familiarity, its ineffability has defied even the greatest thinkers. Over 1,600 years ago the philosopher Augustine of Hippo admitted defeat with words that still resonate: “If no-one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know.”

Yet according to theoretical physicist Lee Smolin, the time has come to grapple with this ancient conundrum: “Understanding the nature of time is the single most important problem facing science,” he says.

As one of the founders of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario, Canada, which specialises in tackling fundamental questions in physics, Professor Smolin has spent more time pondering deep questions than most. So why does he think the nature of time is so important? Because, says Smolin, it is central to the success of attempts to understand reality itself.

To most people, this may sound a bit overblown. Since reality in all its forms, from the Big Bang to the Sunday roast, depends on time, isn’t it obvious that we should take time seriously? And didn’t scientists sort out its mysteries centuries ago?

Before the Big Bang 7: An Eternal Cyclic Universe, CCC revisited & Twistor Theory

This is part update, part remake of our earlier film on Sir Roger Penrose’s Conformal Cyclic Cosmology(CCC). If you haven't seen the first one, don’t worry, you don’t need to. If you have seen our first film there is plenty of new material and updates that weren't covered . So hopefully both audiences should be catered for in this version. We also give a layman explanation for Twistor Theory.
The film is a part of series fo films exploring competing models of the big bang, In previous episodes we have interviewed cosmologists such as Stephen Hawking, Alan Guth and many other leading figures in the field.
You can see those episodes here:

We want to remake the first two films in this series as the quality of these we feel was low. Also in the case of CCC, there have been many fascinating new developments since the first film came out.
There were will be future films on other models too.
Conformal Cyclic cosmology is a scheme whereby the universe is seen to be cyclic even though it never recollapses and bounces back out. Instead it undergoes whats called a conformal rescaling. What’s that ? Watch the film, all will be explained. CCC promises to solve many deep mysteries in cosmology such as why was the entropy of the big bang so low? What happened before the big bang? where does the dark matter in our universe come from? We address both the theory of CCC and the possibility of experimental verification. We also address criticisms of the theory.
All of the scientists in the film saw a draft and approved it before release.
A detailed description of the topics discussed is below:
0 Introduction
1:03 What is CCC?
1:51 Explaining conformal geometry
3:31 Connecting conformal geometry to cosmology
5:24 How to remove the singularity with a conformal rescaling
8:05 Solving the low entropy mystery
10:30 CCC and the information paradox
13:28 firewalls
14:28 Is the entropy fine tuned for life?
15:33 The creators aim
17:31 Fine tuning: is it real ? necessity? multiverse or cycles?
20:21 How CCC explains dark matter
24:49 Has LIGO seen hints of CCC?
26:24 Responding to Sabine Hossenfelder
28:55 Circles in the CMB Sky, evidence for CCC?
36:17 BICEP 2, B modes and primordial magnetic fields
38:40 Responding to William Lane Craig
44:15 Cosmic Jerks and Snaps
46:38 Twistor Theory
51:39 do we need quantum gravity? challenging the conventional view
53:23 CCC and back holes
54:50 summing up

A Journey to the End of the Universe

Could humans ever travel to other galaxies within their lifetime? The immense scale of the Universe seems to prohibit such voyages, after all the nearest galaxy is so far away that it takes light itself - the fastest thing in the Universe - 2.5 million years to complete the trip. Remarkably, there is a trick that might allow humans to accomplish this feat - join us today as we step onboard the constantly accelerating spaceship!

Written and presented by Professor David Kipping.

The Connected Universe - Space Documentary

How does the universe work?
How does the universe work? Understanding the universe's birth and its ultimate fate are essential first steps to unveil the mechanisms of how it works. This, in turn, requires knowledge of its history, which started with the Big Bang.

Previous NASA investigations with the Cosmic Microwave Background Explorer (COBE) and the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) have measured the radiation from the universe when it was only 300,000 years old, confirming theoretical models of its early evolution. With its improved sensitivity and resolution, ESA's Planck observatory probed the long wavelength sky to new depths during its 2-year survey, providing stringent new constraints on the physics of the first few moments of the universe. Moreover, the possible detection and investigation of the so-called B-mode polarization pattern on the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) impressed by gravitational waves during those initial instants will provide clues for how the large-scale structures we observe today came to be.

Observations with the Hubble Space Telescope and other observatories showed that the universe is expanding at an ever-increasing rate, implying that some day - in the very distant future - anyone looking at the night sky would see only our Galaxy and its stars. The billions of other galaxies will have receded beyond detection by these future observers. The origin of the force that is pushing the universe apart is a mystery, and astronomers refer to it simply as dark energy. This new, unknown component, which comprises ~68% of the matter-energy content of the universe, will determine the ultimate fate of all. Determining the nature of dark energy, its possible history over cosmic time, is perhaps the most important quest of astronomy for the next decade and lies at the intersection of cosmology, astrophysics, and fundamental physics.

Knowing how the laws of physics behave at the extremes of space and time, near a black hole or a neutron star, is also an important piece of the puzzle we must obtain if we are to understand how the universe works. Current observatories operating at X-ray and gamma-ray energies, such as the Chandra X-ray Observatory, NuSTAR, Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, and ESA's XMM-Newton, are producing a wealth of information on the conditions of matter near compact sources, in extreme gravity fields unattainable on Earth.

How the Universe Works - Mysteries Of Our Place In The Milky Way- Space Discovery Documentary

Living Universe | Journey To Another Stars - Documentary 4K

The Earth is Not Alone:
LIVING UNIVERSE is an interstellar adventure that seeks to answer the most profound question of all: are we alone? Based on the latest scientific knowledge, we will take a journey to a planet beyond our solar system in search of life.

We ask the world's leading space scientists what we might find if we travel to a neighboring star system. Recent breakthroughs have proven that every star we see in the sky is orbited by at least one planet, many similar to our own Earth. How do we get to these exoplanets? Once there, what will we find? And what will it mean for humanity when we discover we are not alone?

Our speculative journey through space is set a hundred years in the future - when we have the technology to journey well beyond our solar system. On this first expedition, our star ship Aurora will be piloted not by astronauts, but by the artificial intelligence (A.I.) we call Artemis. We imagine how Artemis travels through space, on its 25-year journey, at one fifth of the speed of light. Its objective is Minerva B, a planet much like our own, with an atmosphere, temperature and liquid water that appears a likely candidate to contain life.

With spectacular special effects we will reach and explore a new planet as we seek to answer the most profound question of all: are we alone in the universe? Our guides on this journey are narrator Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and as the voice of our AI, Artemis, real-life astrophysicist, Professor Tamara Davis.

Inspired and informed by our rapidly developing knowledge of far-off worlds, our best scientists - including NASA engineers, astrophysicists and astronomers - we will discover that this amazing journey is not only possible, it is inevitable. To venture into distant space is our destiny.

LIVING UNIVERSE captures a pivotal moment in the human story. A film full of insight and inspiration certain to thrill anyone who dreams of distant worlds, or have ever wondered why are we here?

Have you ever wondered that someone like you, sitting less than a mile away, in some other universe, exists? The possibility in itself seems frightening as well as astonishing.

From breaking news and intriguing historical documentaries to conspiracy theories, classified NASA files and UFO's. We provide you with material that the government doesn't want you to see. The Insomnia team comes up with a promise. To keep up with the same, the team now brings to us a documentary that aims to change your perspective Of another existence, of another possibility, as today, the scientists now believe there may really be the presence of a parallel universe - and in fact, also believe that there may be an infinite number of parallel universes, and where we live today just happens to be only one of them and many of these other parallel universes come with different laws of physics as well.

These other universes that we are talking about not only contain space, time and strange forms of exotic matter but to surprise you, Some of them may even contain you, only maybe in a slightly different form. The thought itself is quite intriguing and scary on the same hand. The basis of this theory is as we know it the idea that parallel universes are constantly spinning off from reality that we humans know of. Though generally ignored at the time, that theory has gone on to become not just a popular topic of study among respected physicists, but the inspiration for such popular films, television shows, and books as Star Trek and The Golden Compass. according to the sources.

The video soon progresses into the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP), that is now changing everything, as some say that the remarkable images reveal the true shape of the universe through baby pictures of the same from the time when it was 4 hundred thousand years old, looking so back in time, when there wasn't even the formation of galaxies yet. The WMAP is catching the very first signs of creation as it is officially tagged with measuring radiation that is left over from Big Bang. And now scientists have devised an experiment to find the overall true shape of the universe. The WMAP hence shows that the universe is flat. From here arises the possibility of more mind boggling parallel universe that are of the level-2 type and is made up of giant cosmic soap bubbles that float in hyperspace. Each of these bubbles within it has a whole universe. Now, the question that arises is that - Do we all live in a giant cosmic bubble?

Before the Big Bang 6: Can the Universe Create Itself?

Richard Gott , co author with Neil De Grasse Tyson of Welcome to The Universe argues the key to understanding the origin of the universe may be the concept of closed time like curves. These are solutions to Einstein's theory that may allow time travel into the past. in this film, Richard Gott of Princeton University explains the model he developed with LIxin Li . Gott explores the possibility of a closed time like curve forming in the early universe and how this might lead to the amazing property of the universe being able to create itself. Gott is one of the leading experts in time travel solution to Einstein’s equations and is author of the book “Time Travel In Einstein’s Universe”.
This film is part of a series of films exploring competing models of th early universe with the creators of those models. We have interviewed Stephen Hawking, Roger Penrose, Alan Guth and many other leaders of the field. To see other episodes , click on the link below:
