New Study Suggests The Universe Is A Sphere, Not Flat!


What do we really know about the universe? If a new theory is to be believed, we don’t
even know its true shape! Because it might actually be a rounded sphere
than a flat surface. Join us as we explore why this might be the
case. 7. Why Did We Think It Was Flat In The First
Place? I’m sure some of you are wondering just how
this whole thing got started in terms of the “shape of the universe”. Mainly because it sounds like the idea of
“Flat Earth”, which is something that we still deal with today despite the fact that it’s
been proven the Earth is round for many, MANY years. But, for the universe, it’s a slightly different
story. Because to truly understand the point of this
piece, we need to go back to the earliest days of astronomy, where many people believed
that the Earth was the center of the universe, and everything revolved around it. Then, we slowly realized the truth, that we
orbited around the sun, and that the sun was just one piece in a very big cosmic puzzle. So when we figured that out, we started to
ask ourselves, “What is the shape of the universe?” The problem was that we honestly couldn’t
answer that right away because we didn’t have too much that could look into deep space. We only had theories and beliefs as to what
the universe was truly shaped like, and it was through those that we believed that the
universe was flat. Not because of the same reasons that people
believed the Earth was flat, but because of how light travels in the universe as we know
it right now. Believe it or not, the “Universe Is Flat”
theory not only makes sense, it explains a lot. Mainly because with the growth of the universe
as it stands right now, we know it’s expanding in all directions, and that would only seem
to make sense if the universe was flat. As it would be an all encompassing growth. So that’s why many believed in it, and that
included a very popular scientist you all know…
6. Einstein’s “Relativity”
In the 1900’s, when Albert Einstein was helping shape the way we looked at the universe, he
came up with a relativity theory that would give further focus as to how the universe
may be shaped. But it wasn’t as simple as flat, it was more…curved…per
se. Basically, he noted that it would likely be
very hard for the universe to be completely flat like a canvas. Not impossible, but hard. Rather, he stated that the universe could
bend, warp, and shift based on gravity and the masses of the various stars, planets,
black holes and other entities that reside within deep space. This was also the way that he helped explain
how gravity was formed in the grander scale of the universe. Which is an interesting notion by itself. But his theory doesn’t fully give shape to
the universe, rather, it gave the potential for one of three “variants” if you will to
how the universe could be shaped. The first theory is the one that most believe,
the flat theory. That we’re on a canvas of sorts, and all the
galaxies, stars, planets, entities and more are just dots on a map of sorts that is the
place we live. However, another view of the universe is the
“saddle” in regards to shape. It’s more curved, which is why certain pictures
of the universe make us wonder if the flat theory is really true, because the perspective
of those events just feel off. Finally, Einstein theorized that potentially,
the universe could be a rounded shape, not unlike how the Earth is right now. This is referred to as a “closed” universe”
Despite all the possibilities, most people are taught to believe that the universe is
flat, that everything extends equally and that the universe works upon certain principles. But now…many are wondering if that’s actually
true. 5. So What Changed? As with all sciences, there are many believes
that seem to be backed up by the sciences we have at the time. But as history as shown, just because we know
something to be “true” now doesn’t mean that we won’t find something that can later disprove
what is going on in the thoughts of others. That’s been shown with astronomy thousands
of times over, and now, a team of scientists seem to have changed things once again by
using the most basic of sciences to figure out the potential shape of the universe…they
looked at the light. Specifically, they looked at the Cosmic Microwave
Background, also known as the CMB. What is CMB? Well, it’s:
“The remnant light from the big bang, and it is the most distant light we can see in
the universe. Because of this, it is the light most affected
by the shape of the universe. The scale of fluctuations in the CMB is determined
by the amount of dark matter and dark energy in the universe, which we know, so we know
how large the fluctuations should appear.” These fluctuations of light have helped scientists
in many ways over the years, and this new team looked at the fluctuations and noticed
something very strange. Because the data from the Plank spacefraft
indicated that the fluctuations of the CMB was much, MUCH more than it would’ve been. So, if the universe was flat, these fluctuations
would not be possible. Or at the very least not to the extent that
they are right now. Thus, this new study seems to show that the
universe is more rounded than we earlier expected. Before we dive into this some more, be sure

The Universe? Ok, so we just threw you for a loop no doubt
with the “proof” of how the universe is not flat, but you might not understand the science
of what’s going on with the light analysis and why we should care about it. So allow us to help you with that front. So think of it like this. You have a laser pointer, and you are aiming
it at an object somewhere in the distance. If the distance between you is a perfectly
shaped line, you’ll end up on a perfect “level”. But, if it’s curved, the light won’t end up
where you think it will. Flat versus round as if where. For the universe as a whole, that’s the same
thing. The light that gets emitted travels in a particular
path, and the shape of the universe as a whole not only determines that path, but, affects
how we perceive the universe. After all, we know that the stars in the sky
are stars because they emit light or are having light reflect off of something else, that’s
how we see the moon in the sky since it doesn’t glow. The light of the universe is shining in all
directions, but not all directions are equal depending on what the shape of the universe
is: “In a flat universe, parallel lines stay parallel,
so light coming from two sides of a distant galaxy reaches us in a straight line. Their angles relative to each other stay the
same, and so the galaxy appears as its true size. If the universe is open, parallel lines diverge
with distance. So the light from our distant galaxy becomes
more parallel as it reaches us. This means the galaxy would appear smaller
than it is. If the universe is closed, the opposite bending
of light occurs, and the galaxy would appear larger than it is.” The studies that have been done using the
Plank Spacecraft and more seemed to indicate that the paths of light were perfectly parallel,
and thus, the universe was flat, or very close to being flat. But with this new study, if the data is to
be believed, that’s no longer the case. It would indicate that the universe is closed,
a sphere, and that changes everything we know about the universe at large. 3. Why Does A Sphere Change Things? On the surface (pun intended), this may not
seem like a big deal. “Why should we care about how the universe
is shaped when it doesn’t affect us here on Earth?” That’s a good question, and one I’ll happily
answer. Everything we feel we know about the universe
right now is based on the theories we’ve made about it. The theory of relativity, the way gravity
and orbits work, and more. We feel we know things because we have stated
that they line up with certain lines of thought. We’ve thought for YEARS that the universe
was flat, every expanding, and full of various things. But clearly, that’s not what’s going on here. Or at least, if this theory holds up it’s
not what’s going on here. If the universe is indeed a sphere, it changes
our perceptions of just about everything that has to do with it. For example, that would meant that the distances
of certain planets, stars, galaxies, may be longer or shorter than they really are. Harkening back to the principles of light
that I mentioned earlier. Also, this would change how we view orbits,
certain gravities, and the placements of certain galaxies near key objects. As if that wasn’t enough, if it truly is round,
or spherical in any way, it proves that we definitely don’t know as much about the universe
as we did before, and that everything we assumed about it is likely very very wrong. Whether that means we’ll learn something new
about it right now or down the line via this information is a bit unclear, but it shows
a gap in the logic that we have about space, and for most scientists, that’s a big no-no. 2. Does This Definitively Prove The Universe
Is A Sphere? That is the question, isn’t it? Because as I stated earlier, history in regards
to astronomy and the physics of the universe have changed emphatically over the years. We thought the Earth was the center of the
universe, then it was the sun, then our galaxy and so on and so forth. It took quite a while to reach the place where
we are right now in regards to our knowledge of the universe as a whole. But if that is proven to be a lie, that would
certainly shake things up. But, that doesn’t answer the question, does
this new evidence prove that the universe is a sphere? Honestly…? No. It doesn’t. It seems like definitive proof as it comes
from the Plank Spacecraft which has been used to determine certain things about the universe,
but in regards to proving it definitively? Not just yet. First and foremost, the data that the team
found has to be verified by many different people. And just because a piece of data shows something
happening in this one instance doesn’t mean that it’s proving that it happens all the
time. As a wise group of scientists once said, “If
it’s not repeatable, it ain’t science.” So right now we’re in a bit of a waiting game
to see if this new piece of information really does pan out. Though, you could also argue that even if
it doesn’t pan out there is still a lot to learn. After all, why did this data from the spacecraft
seem to indicate that the universe was a sphere if it wasn’t? It could be a glitch, sure, or it could be
an anomaly from the universe itself that will teach us something entirely different. The possibilities are endless, and that’s
why we need to wait to see just what is going on in the universe as a whole. 1. The Wonders Of The Universe
If there is anything definitive to determine from this newest piece of information about
the universe…it’s that we REALLY don’t know as much about the universe as we think we
do. Granted, there are some things we DEFINITELY
know about the universe, that’s not in dispute. But, if we can’t even correctly predict the
shape of the universe before we teach it to kids and such? Then we still have a lot to learn. Not that that’s a bad thing, it’s actually
rather refreshing when you think about it. No, really, consider this. If we knew everything about the universe we
wouldn’t want to look up at it every single night. We wouldn’t wonder what is “out there” because
we would know it all already. Yet that’s not the case in the slightest,
and this new mystery proves that. There are areas of space that seem to be filled
with absolutely nothing, there are planets that we look at and we go, “how in the heck
do those kinds of planets form?” We look at asteroids and wonder where they
came from and whether they’re going to reach Earth or not, and on and on it goes. If it’s true that the universe is a sphere
and not flat, this could open up new potential for new mysteries, as well as answers to things
that we didn’t know about before. This could mean the beginning of a big shift
in knowledge in regards to the universe as a whole. So where will it lead us? That depends on whether the information is
verified. If we’re lucky? It’ll get revealed soon whether it’s true
or not, and we’ll go from there. So for right now it’s a waiting game. But take heart in knowing that the universe
is willing to wait for us to figure it out. It’s only been around a few billion years. Thanks for watching everyone! What did you think of this premise of the
universe being closed and not a flat surface? Do you think that really is what is going
on here? Do you think that we’ll be able to learn more
about the universe now that we have these revelations? Let me know in the comments below, be sure

  1. The universe is neither a sphere nor is it shallow … it is rather an eternal space that has always existed!
    That's my belief and my opinion!
    Just as We Observe the Universe its like an ant watching an apartment through a crack in the wooden floor.
    What you call the Big Bang or the beginning of the universe, is basically a quantum fluctuation due to observation.
    Microcosm is like Macrocosm!
    Quantum Physics/Mechanics

  2. The spherical universe has always felt intuitive & right to me….not very scientific ha! I just could never get onboard with the flat universe, although I find all theories fascinating 👍⭕👌

  3. The whites have locked the humanity up … They do not belong to earth, they belong underground. They can not GO up, so they are NOT letting human to go up either. Learn the WHITE race, they are your SPIRITUAL enemy. THEY ARE THE ENEMY OF YOUR SOUL … which they hates so MUCH that they call it a DOG ( just flip the letters)

    Wake up from your slumber, remove all YEARNING of material things. Love your FAMILY .. treat them NICE but DO NOT HAVE ANY ATTACHEMENT .. attachment WILL AGAIN LOCK YOU UP .. time has come .. all 8 billions of you, unshackel yourself from the shiny material objects that the WHITES have invented to LOCK YOU UP. They ARE the hurdle on your road for salvation. Learn the WHITES … learn their LIES, learn their fake paper money, learn their fakery science, learn their fake democracy, learn their fake fear tectics. Liberate yourself from the slavary of the WHITES … learn sanskrit …

  4. This narrator makes pronunciation mistakes nearly every video. Per se, pronounced purse? And I feel like I’m being read to like a first grader.

  5. All I can think about while watching this video is that the universe might be a cell in a Much larger multi-dimensional being. The activity we see in the universe and the expansion itself is just this being "growing up".

  6. If the Universe was flat the stars would appear to be in two places at once. The Universe has to be curved to keep the light focused into one area. Since we cannot find the center, it is more likely that the area we are in is a toroid.

  7. Appreciate your simple breakdown of a fairly complicated topic, made it easy to allow my family to understand how big of a discovery this is.
    Also a flat universe infers an infinite universe, and infinity doesnt typically appear in nature, rather infinity tends to be an error or shortcoming in our understanding of mathematics.
    Keep pumping out these universe videos, love em. Subscribed.

  8. Have we observed the universe 13.5 billion light years in all direction? Is the thickness of the observed universe ( the distance between outer surface of the sphere and inner surface of the sphere 13.5 billion light years? Being some there in the middle between these two surfaces we see that everything is flying away from us (red shift). Because of the expansion we don't know where is the inner and where is the outer surfaces of universe. Everything is red shifted from us in all directions. If the rate of expansion of the universe is not the same in all directions, the universe is not flat. If you can find the differences between expansion rates in three dimensions XYZ , it should be very minuscule number, you can determine the radius of the universe and the position of the center of the sphere. So you can determine the size of the universe. Its mind-boggling….

  9. It is so small opinion of us about knowing shape of Earth. For thousand years..haha…it is so hard to get the true view…

  10. The cosmic microwave background is always displayed as a sphere. If our universe is indeed a sphere, does that bring multi-verse theory, closer to being true?
