Universe Is Going To Collapse Sooner Than Expected

Update Date: Dec 14, 2013 05:59 PM EST

The mortal universe, in due course of time is either going to expand to the point of heat death or it’ll collapse. Till this study, it was going to take very very long time but now scientists believe it will just take just one ‘very’ long time.

In their study scientists from the University of Southern Denmark explained a phenomenon called “Phase transition”. The process is a scientific way of calling imploding of universe. Phase transition could happen when the filed that the Higgs particle changes value and subsequently making every particle in the universe heavy by millions of billions times.

As a result the weight from those particles will push everything into a single point, which is called ‘singularity’. After that everything will disappear. Theoretically phase transition is exactly opposite of Bing Bang theory which explained the creation of our universe.

Previously, many physicist have calculated the time after which the process of phase transition will take place but the scientists at University of Southern Denmark affirmed that their calculations were the most precise till date.

Evidently the theory is frightening and what makes it even more like that is the fact that it will happen ‘sooner’. Meanwhile the process might be already starting at the outer fringes of the Universe.

"The phase transition will start somewhere in the universe and spread from there. Maybe the collapse has already started somewhere in the universe and right now it is eating its way into the rest of the universe. Maybe a collapsed is starting right now right here here. Or maybe it will start far away from here in a billion years. We do not know”, said Jens Frederik Colding Krog in the study.
