Large Hadron Collider could show existence of parallel universes

After the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator will start working this spring, it will allow researchers to look for the presence of mini black-holes. According to a new physics paper, if those black holes are detected, this will help know more about how gravity works.

According to a paper by physicists Mir Faizal, Mohammed M. Khalil and Ahmed Farag Ali, published in the journal Physics Letters B, the presence of the mini black holes would support string theory, according to which, different dimensions could be present and it is possible that there are parallel universes.

According to Faizal, a visiting professor in the physics and astronomy department at the University of Waterloo, "That's something I'm really, really waiting for, because if it does come out in our energy scale, then we know we're using the right theory".

Earlier also, scientists searched for mini black holes at the LHC, but they didn't find them. According to Faizal, this could be because they didn't consider the theory of rainbow gravity. As per Faizal, those black holes could be detected when LHC becomes operational again. It can now fire subatomic particles together at about double the energy level than before.

He added that the detection of black holes with LHC would give evidence of the existence of other dimensions and the rainbow gravity theory. As per rainbow gravity theory, as all of the wavelengths of light have different energies, gravity would have an effect on each of them a bit differently.

Faizal said that if a particle has more energy, it will perceive space-time curving differently from a particle with less energy. This indicates that gravity works differently on particles of different energy.
