Scientists Claim Evidence of Parallel Universe Where Time Runs Backward

Parallel universes are something any sci-fi fan worth their salt knows about thanks to decades of pop culture, where they have depicted everything from an evil Mr. Spock with a goatee to a Spider-Verse where Miles Morales teams with fellow web-slingers. Purported evidence of a parallel universe was put forth back in 2015 and now scientists believe they have discovered evidence of not only a neighboring parallel universe, but one where time runs backward.

According to the New York Post (via The Daily Star), scientists conducting cosmic ray detection experiments in Antarctica have uncovered what they believe is evidence of a parallel universe where the laws of physics differ from our own.

They reportedly detected high-energy particles rising out of Antarctica, which is contrary to how these particles are supposed to behave, since they’re supposedly only able to be detected when they come down from space. “To detect a heavier particle – a tau neutrino – coming ‘up’ out of the Earth would imply that these particles are actually traveling backwards in time,” according to the Daily Star.

[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2019/08/14/what-is-doctor-strange-2s-multiverse-of-madness”]

Scientists believe such a parallel universe would be the result of the Big Bang over 13 billion years ago where not only was our universe formed but this parallel one was as well.

The New Scientist breaks down the possible discovery like this:

“That strange finding was made in 2016. Since then, all sorts of suggestions rooted in known physics have been put forward to account for the perplexing signal, and all have been ruled out. What’s left is shocking in its implications. Explaining this signal requires the existence of a topsy-turvy universe created in the same big bang as our own and existing in parallel with it. In this mirror world, positive is negative, left is right and time runs backwards.”

However, the team’s findings aren’t universally believed to be evidence of a parallel universe, let alone one where time — to us — runs backward.

As experimental particle physicist Peter Gorham – lead author on the paper documenting the phenomenon he dubbed an “upside-down cosmic-ray shower” – conceded to The New Scientist, “Not everyone was comfortable with the hypothesis.”

Until there’s more scientific consensus on these findings, we’ll just have to stick to pop culture for our fix of parallel universes and time craziness, such as in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film Tenet.

Biggest Explosion in the Universe Detected

An explosion big enough to fit fifteen Milky Way Galaxies in a row has been discovered.

CNN World reports the record-breaking explosion originated inside the Ophiuchus galaxy cluster 390 million light-years away. Experts also say the explosion was likely created by a supermassive black hole.

Black holes are well known for sucking in matter, but they also shoot it outwards in the form of jets or beams. The energy behind this explosion breaks all previous records, beating the previous largest known explosion five times over.

[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/02/27/star-wars-the-high-republic-explained”]

Astronomers observed the explosion from both ground and space-based telescopes like NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, the European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton X-ray space observatory, Australia’s Murchison Widefield Array, as well as the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope located in India. However, the explosions were also noticed several years ago in 2016 but were so large astronomers at the time believed it was too unlikely to be one.

It wasn’t until now that the X-ray data was combined with radio wavelength data from ground-based telescopes to help confirm the cavity created by the explosive black hole. These observations also tell us that the explosion is no longer occurring as the jet activity has stopped meaning there’s no longer any gas to power the explosion.

This subsided explosion isn’t all astronomers have been up to recently. Radio signals have been picked up repeating in an odd pattern and a new method to detect potentially habitable planets using radio waves has been developed. As for other big destructive forces, stay tuned for six billion years from now when the sun destroys our solar system’s asteroid belt.

How Birds of Prey Connects to the DC Universe Movies

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) delivers the next chapter of the DCEU, which may come as a surprise to those who heard director Cathy Yan say that the movie “exists in a parallel timeline.” Now that we’ve seen the movie, it seems as though Yan was more speaking metaphorically about how that was her mindset going into the film — she wanted it to stand on its own rather than be reliant on other films. But now that we know Birds of Prey is indeed a part of the shared DC movie tapestry, here’s a rundown on how Birds of Prey links to DC’s other movies with a handful of cool Easter eggs and how Harley’s antics impact the Gotham City landscape and the larger DC movie universe.

Note: just for clarification, the DC movie universe aka the DCEU includes Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, Justice League, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Shazam!, and now Birds of Prey, whereas Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker film stands by itself unconnected to these other films.

Warning: full spoilers for Birds of Prey ahead!

You can view a visual version of this feature by flipping through the slideshow below or keep scrolling to read it as an article.

[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=how-birds-of-prey-impacts-the-dc-movie-universe&captions=true”]

The Joker Is MIA

Birds of Prey picks up with Harley trying to get over being dumped by her ex, the Joker. We see Harley getting tossed out by one of the Joker’s goons, and you’ll notice that the setting isn’t in Gotham City. In Suicide Squad, we saw the Joker operating out of a lavish mansion, but now he appears to be residing a cabin out in a rural area, which implies that the Joker isn’t in Gotham and is likely laying low, probably to avoid getting caught by Batman.

The Joker’s absence in Gotham has a profound effect on Harley and the city at large. Harley essentially broadcasts her breakup with Joker when she destroys Ace Chemicals, the place where she was reborn as Harley Quinn and cemented her perverse bond with her Puddin’. So without the Joker’s protection, it’s open season on Harley Quinn, meaning everyone with a grudge against her — and it turns out that’s an awful lot of people — are emboldened to seek her out and attack her in a bid for revenge, all because they know that the Joker isn’t around to retaliate. Black Mask takes this as an opportunity to finally claim Harley as his own and punish her for the long, long list of things she’s done to anger and otherwise annoy him.

[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/02/05/birds-of-prey-review”]

The Rise of Black Mask

While Black Mask trying to get his gloved hands on Harley is at the forefront of the film, we couldn’t help but notice that there also seems to be a power vacuum in Gotham City thanks to the Joker not being around, and Roman Sionis is trying to take advantage of it. We see Black Mask making moves to expand his criminal operations as he makes offers to fellow crime lords… and has them executed by Mr. Zsasz when they don’t play along.

Birds of Prey

Of course, the Birds of Prey assemble to stop Black Mask and bring him to a rather, er, explosive end. Members Renee Montoya, Huntress, and Black Canary decide to stay together to keep cleaning up Gotham. Now, in addition to the Justice League and the Shazam Family, the DC movie universe has another superhero team protecting innocents and beating up baddies.

It’s also worth pointing out that during Renee’s emotional talk with Black Canary aka Dinah Laurel Lance, we learned that Canary’s mother was a super-powered hero who protected Gotham City before her untimely demise. In the comics, the character of Black Canary has gone through many retcons over the years, but the movie seems to be implying that Dinah Laurel Lance’s mother is none other than Dinah Drake, who eventually marries detective Larry Lance and has a child that carries on her metahuman gene. At one point Drake was a member of the Justice Society of America, a superhero team that operated a generation before the Justice League, and we know that the JSA will be featured in Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam movie, so it could be possible that we meet Dinah’s mom in that movie.

[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=birds-of-prey-comparing-the-characters-looks-through-the-years&captions=true”]

Gotham City Sirens?

Of course, when a team of heroes appears, it’s inevitable that a team of villains will form to oppose them. The most obvious choice to fight the Birds of Prey is none other than the Gotham City Sirens. In the comics, they’re a group of female characters from Batman’s rogues gallery — Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy — who dish out their own twisted brand of justice across Cotham City.

In fact, after Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn proved to be the breakout character from Suicide Squad, Warner Bros. got to work on developing four potential followup movies for her. One of those ideas was Gotham City Sirens, which we last heard had David Ayer tentatively attached to direct, but the film was put on hold when Warners decided to move ahead with Birds of Prey. Birds of Prey got the green light in large part due to Robbie championing it because she wanted to introduce the lesser-known Birds of Prey characters to the masses, knowing that many fans are already familiar with the popular Poison Ivy and Catwoman.

But now that the Birds of Prey have been established on the big screen, it’s possible that a potential sequel could introduce Harley’s other comic book team. We can just imagine the sort of chaos that would unfold if Harley was a member of both teams as they’re fighting each other.

The plant-controlling Poison Ivy is a longtime Batman villain who has a close, sometimes-romantic relationship with Harley Quinn. The jewel thief known as Catwoman, on the other hand, is set to appear in Matt Reeves’ upcoming film The Batman, with Selina Kyle being played by Zoe Kravitz. It’s currently unclear whether The Batman will be connected to the DC movie universe or if it’ll be standalone like Joker (one rumor says The Batman will be set in the past during the ‘90s), but if it does end up connecting, then Kravitz could reprise the role to join the Gotham City Sirens.

[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=who-is-the-strongest-hero-in-the-dceu&captions=true”]

Harley Quinn Will Rejoin the Suicide Squad

That’s a lot of speculation, but here’s what we do know about Harley Quinn’s next cinematic appearance. It’ll be in James Gunn’s upcoming sequel-or-is-it-a-reboot, The Suicide Squad (release date August 6, 2021), which was teased in Birds of Prey. When Harley passes by a wanted poster in the Gotham City police station, she says, “I know that guy!” And lo and behold, it features Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang, who was one of Harley’s teammates on Task Force X.

Given that Birds of Prey ends with Harley hightailing it with her new sidekick Cassandra Cain, that means “Cass” could also make an appearance in the film. Cass was an assassin in the comics before she went on to become Batgirl, so maybe the Squad will be where the movie version picks up those skills.

But this also means some bad news for Harley: for her to be once again enlisted in Task Force X, she has to be incarcerated by Amanda Waller, so she’s probably going to get caught again between the events of Birds of Prey and The Suicide Squad. Sorry, Harley!

[poilib element=”accentDivider”]

Birds of Prey may be intimately focused on Harley’s quest for emancipation, but it also shook up the status quo of the DCEU quite a bit by eliminating a major crime lord, creating a new superhero team, and leaving the door open for a new DC property to take shape on the big screen.

Panama Also Drops Out Of Donald Trump’s Miss Universe Pageant

PANAMA CITY (AP) — Panama is joining several other Latin American nations in dropping out of the Miss Universe pageant in protest over Donald Trump’s comments about immigrants.

The Miss Panama Organization and the Telemetro television channel say that this year they won’t participate in or broadcast the Miss Universe contest partly owned by Trump.

They say the move is “a message of solidarity” to Mexicans offended by Trump’s recent description of Mexican migrants as rapists and as people who bring drugs and crime to the United States.

Panama hosted the pageant in 1986 and 2003. Contest organizers and broadcasters in Costa Rica and Mexico also have pulled out of the event.

On ‘Inside Amy Schumer,’ Bill Nye Confirms The Universe Exists To Guide White Women In Their 20s

On Tuesday night’s “Inside Amy Schumer,” Bill Nye confirmed what we pretty much already knew — the universe only exists to send “cosmic guidance” to white women in their 20s.

Obviously.

Nye explained that while scientists once believed the universe was a “chaotic collection of matter,” recent breakthroughs have led them to understand it’s just basically a “giant dream board on which women pin their wishes.”

Because “if you just put it out into the universe, it will just manifest itself.” You know?
