As you know, our immense universe began 14.5 billion years ago in the Big Bang. Despite the fact that we already know a lot about how it appeared our universe, we still do not understand what caused this enormous power of the explosion. In order to try to answer this question, the researchers decided to analyze the mechanisms that could cause such an immensely powerful explosion that gave birth to everything, including us.
What triggered the Big Bang?
What was the beginning of our Universe? Well, there are several different points of view regarding the origin of our universe. Some researchers believe that the Big Bang could be the result of a series of smaller explosions, while opponents of this theory argue that before him there is literally nothing; still others argue that before the birth of our Universe existed at least two Universes colliding with each other and having liberated as a result of the collision a large amount of energy, which gave rise to our universe. When in July 1965, scientists announced the discovery of the so-called cosmic microwave background radiation, the discovery was truly sensational, giving rise to the development of cosmology and the theory of the birth of the Universe with its further expansion and cooling.
The researchers were able to find some critical criteria that could make the primary flame to generate their own turbulence, and then spontaneously accelerate and smoothly transition into a detonation. Karim Ahmed, associate Professor of the Department of mechanics and aerospace engineering of South Florida University, believes that the birth of our Universe was similar to a supernova explosion with the only difference that the dimension of these cosmic events are immeasurably different.
When in the process of dying parent star gradually burns out, in the final stage of its space death, it explodes, leaving behind only a shell consisting of a mixture of various gases and substances. A similar process,much smaller, able to hold the team Karim Ahmed in the laboratory. The key to the success of the experience was the use of a combination of turbulence and passive flame burning. Powerful explosion that occurred at the end of the process could be similar to the Big Bang that spawned our Universe.
The researchers believe that their proposed mechanism of the Big Bang can help to better understand the age of the Universe. In addition, the experience might help to work more effectively hypersonic engines and modernized the production of electricity.
