In Scientific American: Webb breaks the Big Bang model

last weekend, we said – Whatever one thinks about the great explosion, – It was obvious that James Webb Space Telescope Astrology has been rocked. in Scientific American, Science writer Jonathan O’Callaghan It seems to agree:

In the weeks and months since JWST’s discoveries of surprisingly mature “early” galaxies, enigmatic theorists and observers alike have been scrambling to explain them. Could an abnormally large and bright early galaxy cluster be deceptive, possibly due to flaws in the analysis of initial telescope observations? If it is real, can it somehow be explained by standard cosmological models? Or maybe just, were these the first indications that the universe is more exotic and complex than even our most daring theorists had predicted?

At stake is no less than our understanding of how the ordered universe we know emerged from primordial chaos. JWST’s early discoveries could be poised to rewrite the opening chapters of cosmic history, related not only to distant epochs and distant galaxies but also to our very existence here, in the familiar Milky Way. “You build these machines not to confirm the model, but to break it,” says Mark McGreen, JWST scientist, ESA’s senior science and exploration adviser. “You just don’t know how it’s going to break.”

McGreen may not exaggerate:

The most surprising explanation is that the canonical LCDM cosmological model is wrong and requires revision. “These results are very surprising and difficult to obtain in our standard model of cosmology,” [Michael] Boylan Colchin says. “And it may not be a small change. We will have to go back to the drawing board.”

That’s why those who have always doubted the Big Bang have always been Suddenly I heard from. Aharon rushed to his defense, Noting that – as an origin theory – it relies on a great deal of evidence that the JWST is not designed for evaluation. At the very least, we are promised Revolutionary Changes.

These changes are not just about science. There is a lot of culture and philosophy embedded in The Big Bang Theory as we understand it. yes we be Think of the popular sitcom (2007-2019) by name:

But on a more serious note, a neurosurgeon Michael Eignor Disagreements with the philosopher David Babino About whether the Big Bang Natural event. Robert J Marks Considers the mathematics behind Sheldon’s theory that he would never dance with Penny in any world – and concludes that Sheldon He may be right. And astrobiologist Caleb Scharf presents an argument based on the Big Bang of free will.

in big thought, Theoretical astrophysicist Ethan Siegel Lists some of the eyes:

● There are more galaxies than Hubble has ever seen, including distances that Hubble will never be sensitive to.

● Some of these galaxies appear to be more advanced, more massive, and in earlier stages not only than we’ve seen previously, but than many models and simulations predicted.

● Some of them may have been massive and fully developed in periods between 200 and 350 million years after the Big Bang; The current confirmed record holder, from Hubble, was already 407 million years after the Big Bang…

The Big Bang as a basic concept will undoubtedly continue. But much of the “settled science” appears to be undergoing changes, perhaps necessary.

Researcher and science writer Eric Lerner would not have caught his attention in recent weeks if Webb’s findings had not been so troubling to many cosmologists. To avoid the silly “infinity” math, we just assume that our universe has a beginning. But then Webb shook up too many details, causing me to feel upset and angry.
