Everything we know about the Universe may be TIME, as new evidence suggests that it is curved and not flat, as previously thought.
- Gravity found seems to bend microwaves on a cosmic microwave background  The discovery suggests that the universe is curved, not flat, as previously thought.
- Researchers say these findings appear to be accurate 99.8%
For years, scientists have believed that our universe is as flat as a piece of paper, but new evidence suggests it's curved like a giant balloon.
A recent study analyzes data from the cosmic microwave background, the low echo of the Big Bang, and open gravity seems to bend the microwave.
These discoveries point to a closed universe – the idea that if you travel far enough in space you will return back to where you started.

A recent study analyzed data from the cosmic microwave background, low echo of the Big Bang, and open microwave gravity. These findings point to a closed universe – if you travel far enough in space you will return back to where you started
In a document published in Nature Astronomy, researchers note the 2018 Legacy edition confirming the presence of " a gravitational lens "in a cosmic microwave background (CMB) that tells its microwaves to bend.
The CMB is the oldest thing discovered in the universe and is made of environmental light in a microwave.
" The closed universe can to provide a physical explanation h this effect, since Planck's cosmic microwave spectrum now prefers a positive curvature of more than 99% confidence level, "said the study. The Big Bang Theory of How the Universe Formed
In 1965, scientists discovered electromagnetic waves that continuously bombarded the Earth from all directions in harmless microwaves
The radiation coming to our planet was cooled to amo 2.7 degrees above absolute zero, while passing deep space, while the universe is expanding, which means that in the past the temperature would be much hotter.
This led scientists to conclude that the universe has a hot origin – the so-called Nar. Big bang – nearly 14 billion years ago.
To measure the temperature fluctuations in space background radiation, the Planck Surveyor satellite was launched in 2009 by the Space Agency (ESA).
These findings contradict the years of "conventional wisdom and other research based on the same CMB dataset," Live Science reports.
And the theory of the flat universe may actually be a "mask" [ing] of a cosmological crisis in which the various observable properties of the universe appear to be mutually incompatible, "the authors write.
Roman cosmologist at the University of Sapienza Alessandro Melchiori, who is participating in a recent study explained to Live Science that the closed-universe model would cause a number of problems in the field of physics.
"I don't mean to believe in a closed universe," he told Live Science.
"I'm a little more neutral. I would say let's wait for the data and what the new data will say.
"What I believe is that there is a mismatch now that we need to be careful and try to find what creates that mismatch."  Although the 2018 Legacy edition confirms the closed with a precision of 99.8 percent, the researchers note, however, that "future measurements are needed to clarify whether the observed discrepancies are due to undetected systematics or to new physics, or are simply statistical fluctuations.
These findings come only a month after the new calculations subs ental that the universe may be several billion years younger than now estimated, scientists, and even younger than the proposed two other calculations published this year that cut hundreds of millions of years from the age of the cosmos.
In a publication published in Nature Astronomy, researchers noted 2018 Plant Legacy building confirming the existence of "gravitational objectification" in space microwave (CMB) background, suggesting that its microwaves bend
Huge swings according to scientists' calculations – even this new calculation can take billions of years – reflects different approaches to the complex problem of establishing the real age of the universe.
The universally accepted age of the universe is 13.7 billion years, based on Hubble Constant at 70.
However, JJ from the Max Planck Institute in Germany, lead author of the study in the Thursday journal Science, and his team came out with a Hubble constant t of 82.4, which would put the age of the universe at around 11.4 billion years.
Jee uses a concept called gravitational lensing – where gravity distorts light and makes distant objects look closer.
