The Big Bang theory staggers

Astronomers Riccardo Giovanelli and Martha Haynes have recently detected in the constellation of Virgo a giant hydrogen cloud that could be an emerging galaxy. All this discovery has surprised them, because that place in the universe was considered “desert”.

The data provided are also not precarious. The concentration or clouds of materi is ten times higher than our Milky Way, which measures 100,000 light years.

The reason this cloud has not been seen before is the absence of stars, so the two astronomers mentioned claim that the cloud is being born. If so, according to experts, the Big Bang theory that explains the birth of our universe would be in question, since the Big Bang theory says that galaxies were born from the Grand Explosion of the beginning of the universe.

The discovery was made by chance by astronomers Giovanelli and Haynes. At the Centro Ionosférico de Astronomía, located in the Puerto Rico Reef, they went to an “empty” space zone to regulate their tools, in order to detect objects facing the other side after recording the background noise of the universe. Instead of recording background noise, powerful radio signals came to the satellite dish. Once the signs were contrasted, it could not be denied that another new “piece” was found in the broad universe at 65 million light years.
