Researchers assume that some neutrons are able to travel between parallel worlds.
Can the 2019th be a year when humanity will open the first portal to another dimension that repeats our world? Scientists from Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee hope that this will happen.
They completed the construction of special equipment, which this summer can shed the first light on parallel worlds.
As The Independent writes, theoretically these worlds may turn out to be identical with ours in many things, repeating elementary particles, planets and even life known to humanity. So says physicist Lee Boussard, who manages the project.
The discovery of a parallel universe sounds like science fiction, like the series “Stranger Things”. But physicists often allowed its existence, trying to explain the abnormal findings.
An example is an attempt in 1990 to determine the time interval during which a neutron decays into protons after separation from the atomic nucleus.
Most likely, neutrons have several life cycles. Only 1% of particles are able to “travel” to other worlds, and after returning to release protons.
To prove the theory, scientists want to send neurons in the direction of an impenetrable barrier, on the back of which a special device will be installed. If device detects neutrons, it means that they bypassed the obstacle through a parallel world.
