CFaC: “Our location away form the galaxy's center and in the flat plane of the disk provides us with a particularly privileged vantage point for observing both nearby and distant stars.... The very same conditions that allow for intelligent life on Earth make it strangely well-suited for viewing and analyzing the universe. And we suspect this is not an accident. In fact, we raise the question of whether the universe has literally been designed for discovery (p. 164).”
Newscientist article: “Have we hastened the demise of the universe by looking at it? That's the startling question posed by a pair of physicists, who suggest that we may have accidentally nudged the universe closer to its death by observing dark energy, which is thought to be speeding up cosmic expansion.”
“Lawrence Krauss of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and colleague James Dent suggest that by making this observation in 1998 we may have caused the universe to revert to a state similar to early in its history, when it was more likely to end. ‘Incredible as it seems, our detection of the dark energy may have reduced the life-expectancy of the universe,’ says Krauss.”
“The researchers came to their conclusion by calculating how the energy state of our universe might have evolved. Until recently, cosmologists thought that the big bang 13.7 billion years ago occurred after a bubble of ...”
Lol, no point here really…I just thought it was funny. Carry on!
