Universe origin. Big Bang Theory by Grosseteste. Nothing is new! “The Medieval multiverse.” The study has aroused so much interest that will be discussed shortly in Nature.

A multidisciplinary team of scientists, linguists and medievalists been translated into mathematical formulation cosmological theory enunciated in the thirteenth century by Robert Grosseteste. Its main author is a physicist at the University of Durham (UK): Richard Bower.

The model described in Latin by Grosseteste can be translated into modern mathematics and then, being solved with computer technology.

NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has captured a new, infrared view of the choppy star-making cloud called M17, also known as the Omega Nebula or the Swan Nebula.

Was Medieval way of thinking so dark as we have thought? At least in the scientific work of Robert Grosseteste, this cannot be further from the truth. His work shows a deeper understanding of the natural world. According to Bower, sometimes his perception was amazing even for a modern physicist.

In his reflections, this philosopher and scientist introduced familiar concepts in contemporary physics as the origin of the universe by a big explosion (the controversial Big Bang.)

What is a shame, according to the study, it’s that we have almost no historical records to understand what Grosseteste contemporaries thought of his ideas. They would be confused!

Perhaps the 13th century were not so illiterate and dark as we thought. Maybe this work will serve for we better understand the Middle Ages. Increasingly revalued time, because in the end, they were as intelligent as us and could reach similar conclusions.

Nothing is new, neither big bang theory! Universe origin has been worrying people from old times… What are we doing here, on this little blue planet?

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
