NFT: NASA may have discovered a Parallel Universe

IN THE Antarctic, things happen at a glacial pace. Just ask Peter Gorham. For a month at a time, he and his colleagues would watch a giant balloon carrying a collection of antennas float high above the ice, scanning over a million square kilometres of the frozen landscape for evidence of high-energy particles arriving from space.

When the experiment returned to the ground after its first flight, it had nothing to show for itself, bar the odd flash of background noise. It was the same story after the second flight more than a year later.

While the balloon was in the sky for the third time, the researchers decided to go over the past data again, particularly those signals dismissed as noise. It was lucky they did. Examined more carefully, one signal seemed to be the signature of a high-energy particle. But it wasn’t what they were looking for. Moreover, it seemed impossible. Rather than bearing down from above, this particle was exploding out of the ground.

That strange finding was made in 2016. Since then, all sorts of suggestions rooted in known physics have been put forward to account for the perplexing signal, and all have been ruled out. What’s left is shocking in its implications. Explaining this signal requires the existence of a topsy-turvy universe created in the same big bang as our own and existing in parallel with it. In this mirror world, positive is negative, left is right and time runs backwards. It is perhaps the most mind-melting idea ever to have emerged from the Antarctic ice ­­– but it might just be true. …

Someone go to this parallel universe and get baker out quickly before he decides to go to some house party in Miami just to “play madden.”

Totally. Basically NASA just caught up on season 2.

Stranger things is is cool because it reminds us of the 80s but Fringe was amazing.
If the particles are being detected in our universe

Then they're probably from our universe.

LOL - is there one where Tom Brady gets drafted 1st overall in that 2000 draft by Cleveland because that would be a good one too. He would just me another notch in the Cleveland QB belt and NE may never have found a replacement for Bledsoe and Lil Bill might have been coaching the G-men

So there was a series on Starz (I think it's Starz, not sure I watched it on DVD), called Counterpart, where a portal to a parallel universe was discovered in Berlin in the 1980's. One of the differences is that in the "prime" universe there was a swine flu epidemic, and they think it was released by the "alpha" universe to cripple them. Art imitating life?

It's good series, worth checking out.
This explains the Eagles super bowl

Maybe you should call NASA. They probably haven't considered this possibility.

I'd bet a paycheck many there think just like I do on it.

You really don't think so?
Because to take your silly shot to its logical conclusion  
Sneakers O'toole : 5/21/2020 6:40 am : link
It would have to be basically indisputable that this is consensus thought on the subject. Kind of a premature joke.

Nah, since apparently time goes backward in that universe, Baker's card game will happen after (or before?) he retires.
Why would it be a parallel universe, and not just ....

some, as of yet, unexplained aspect of the known universe? Isn’t everything in existence, by definition, part of the universe?

That's not what NASA found or is actually saying, it requires some more reading rather than headline grabbing which the original source did.
