Scientists claim that they may have just found evidence of the existence of an alternate universe.
The discovery was made while mapping the cosmic microwave background (CMB), which is the left over light from the early universe.
Ranga-Ram Chary, an astrophysicist at the European Space Agency’s Planck Space Telescope data center at Caltech, discovered while studying the CMB that certain light spots were glowing 4,500 times brighter than expected, as reported by Russia Today (RT).
According the International Business Times, Chary has said that while there is a 30% chance the fluctuations are nothing unusual, there is also the possibility they provide evidence of a collision of our Universe with an alternate Universe.
This sort of collision should be possible, according to modern cosmological theories that suggest the universe we see is just one bubble among many, according to New Scientist.
“Our universe may simply be a region within an eternally inflating super-region,” Chary wrote in a recent study. “Many other regions beyond our observable universe would exist with each such region governed by a different set of physical parameters.”
The multiverse theory has been based on the widely accepted idea of cosmic inflation, which suggests that the early universe expanded exponentially in an instant following the explosion of the Big Bang. Theoretically the inflation would continue until multiple universes are ultimately created.
Although the initial findings have proved promising, verification of the anomalies as evidence of an alternate universe could prove to be difficult.
Chary himself noted that, “Unusual claims like evidence for alternate universes require a very high burden of proof.”
Further analysis of the data collected will be required in order to prove or disprove Chary’s potential discovery.

Tinder, the very popular online dating app is known for its spam problem.
Prostitution rings, cam girls and porn websites have been known to pay top dollar to trick Tinder users into clicking on links and buying products.
“Some of the sites pay $6.00 per lead for a successful sign-up and up to $60 if a lead becomes a premium member,” security response manager Satnam Narang told the Guardian about the scams.
But for those who still refuse to believe that they could be cat-fished on Tinder, just keep scrolling.
Here at RISE NEWS, we did a little test and started swiping right in the name of journalism (and love or whatever).
We’re based in Miami and over the course of one day, we came across over 40 separate profiles that were almost identical.
It got a bit depressing. Like really depressing.
All of the fake profiles purport to be either 23 or 25 (because being 24 really sucks apparently). Most of them claimed to work in “communications” at vague sounding firms or at an area college (that was incorrectly identified as Miami University, which is in Ohio).
Each of the bios were nearly identical with the same message: “I love playing [sport name], [hobby], [hobby] and [some sort of activity] before sleeping.”
Here’s a very sad taste of what we found:

A Broward animal welfare organization is under fire after shocking video of one of its volunteers being rough with a cat emerged.
In the video, a unidentified volunteer for Cat Crusade is seen using a broom to forcefully push “Mocha”, a cat, against a wall divider.
The volunteer uses profanity and becomes visibly angry while shoving the broom at the cat.
“Get the fuck out!,” the woman says on video. “Go! Go! Come on! Move! Out! Out! Out Mocha!”
The video was taken by Nadia Sazonova yesterday at a Hollywood PetSmart.
She then sent it to RISE NEWS.
In a phone interview, Sazonova said that the incident occurred at the cat adoption section of the PetSmart.
She said that there were a number of cats in that area at the time of the incident.
She was at the store to pick up a leash for her dog when her attention was drawn to the cat adoption section.
“When I was passing by she was cursing,” Sazonova said. “When I came closer, I saw she had a broom and was hitting the cat, so I started to record.”
“Nothing is more important than the safety and well-being of pets in our care,” PetSmart said in a statement to RISE NEWS. “As soon as we were alerted to to the incident with Mocha, we took immediate action to ensure that Mocha was unharmed. Additionally, the volunteer of our partner organization, Cat Crusaders, that committed the act was immediately removed from the store and will not be allowed to return.”
A PetSmart spokesperson told RISE NEWS that the pet chain works with over 4,000 different animal welfare organizations across the country, and even supplies space for their operations in its stores.
However, the spokesperson said that it is up to the individual partner animal welfare organizations to vet the volunteers who work out of space at PetSmart.
“It’s a unfornature incident that occurred with a volunteer,” the spokesperson said.
But for Sazonova, that response isn’t enough.
“I would like this woman not to work with pets anymore or for her to be charged with animal cruelty,” Sazonova said.
According to its website, Cat Crusade provides care for 50-80 stray cays per month in Broward County.
PetSmart said that they brought Mocha the cat to a veterinarian immediately after learning of the incident and that the cat is doing fine.
Cat Crusaders did not immediately respond to requests for comment. We will update this story if they do.
