Summary #352

Cosmology has some big problems
  • This article questions and criticizes the validity of the big bang theory of the universe according to which the universe expands at an increasing velocity and it is constituted mainly by dark matter and dark energy.
  • According to the author, there is no observable empirical evidence to support this theory and some discrepancies have been observed about the existence of dark matter in all parts of the cosmos and in the measurements of the expansion rate of the universe.
  • The existence of dark matter and dark energy has been postulated to explain some discrepancies between the theory of relativity and the behavior observed in galaxies.
  • The analysis suggests that the big bang theory is a hypothesis created by cosmologists to explain Einstein's theory of general relativity.
