For instance, there is way more isotopic homogeneity in the universe, say in the cosmic microwave background, than should exist and that’s been difficult to account for. Neves uses black holes to support this radical theory.
“There are two kinds of singularity in the Universe,” Neves said. “One is the alleged cosmological singularity, or Big Bang. The other hides behind the event horizon of a black hole.”
A black hole is born out of a collapsed star. The star’s core—having run out of fuel, implodes, leaving a singularity which here is a point of infinite density and intense gravity. Once something gets caught in its event horizon or the point of no return, nothing can escape, not even light. The gravity is just too great.
American astronomer Edwin Hubble first proposed the Big Bang theory in the 1920s, after he found that galaxies are moving away from one another. This means that they all must’ve had the same origin, which began 13.78 billion years ago, when the singularity is said to have taken place.
