NASA scientists may have found evidence of a bizarre parallel universe where time flows backwards, shocking reports say.
The discovery was apparently made while experts were working on an experiment in Antarctica to detect cosmic rays.
The concept of a “twin universe” has been around for decades, but new research has found particles that may simply be from another realm, also born during the Big Bang.
Scientists used a giant balloon to transport NASA to the Antarctic Impulse Transient Antenna (ANITA) high above the frozen debris of Antarctica.
It reached heights where cool air provided the perfect environment with little or no radio noise to distort any findings, the Daily Star reported.
There is a constant “wind” of high-energy particles coming from space, some of which are a million times more powerful than anything generated on Earth.
Low-energy neutrinos with a mass close to zero can pass completely through our planet, but higher-energy objects are stopped by the Earth’s mass, according to New Scientist.
This means that high-energy particles can only be detected coming down from space, but ANITA apparently detects heavier particles that seem to come out of Earth.
This may mean that these particles are actually traveling back in time, which is seen as possible evidence for a parallel universe.
ANITA principal investigator Peter Gorham of the University of Hawaii has suggested that the only way a particle can behave this way is if it changes to a different type of particle before passing through Earth and then returning again.
Gorham, lead author of a paper from Cornell University describing the strange phenomenon, noted that he and his fellow researchers had seen several of these “impossible events.”
“Not everyone was happy with the hypothesis,” he said.
The simplest explanation is that at the time of the Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago, two universes formed – ours and the one where time goes backwards.
However, some believe that the results can simply be reduced to a scientific problem.
“We were left with the most exciting or boring opportunities,” said Ibrahim Safa, who is also working on the experiment.

Documents were released last year revealing that the US Defense Intelligence Agency once considered the possibility of parallel universes.
The documents were obtained from Nick Pope, who has been leading the British government’s UFO research project for years.
They concern the work of the Aerospace Threat Identification Improvement Program (AATIP), which runs for five years between 2007 and 2012.
