I think that it's awesome to have scientists actually doing science instead of hamming it up in public like they are the holders of secret knowledge untouchable by the mere mortal.. or was that religion.. maybe politicians?? Can't really tell them apart these days.Shocking. Stunning. The whole world of astrophysics is afire.
I recall the final exam in first year physics in high school asked the student to solve for the critical mass of the universe that would determine whether it would eventually slow enough to collapse again into a "big crunch" or continue to expand forever. The question was whether the universe's constituent parts had "escape velocity" or if gravity would slow its expansion enough that eventually it would reverse direction and collapse due to its own gravity. Yes, this is simple first year physics kids can do.
In 1993, what we found is this scenario is completely in error. The universe is not slowing in its expansion, but rather; some force is pushing its parts apart ever faster in defiance of gravity. Physicists immediately called this "dark energy" (not "dark matter, that's something different) and set the problem aside, postulating some anti-gravity type force we're not familiar with. Still, we knew then what we thought was wrong. Turns out it is more wrong than we could have imagined.
Enter JWST. Looks like EVERYTHING we have thought about the universe is completely wrong. Great time to become an astrophysicist, as they're not all so damn cocky now.
Having said that, this video was the science equivalent of the National Enquirer; I felt like puking after watching it and now know to never go near that channel again.
