Current estimates suggest that the Big Bang occurred 13.8 billion years ago. But today, we’re joined by Rajendra Gupta, a luminary in the field of cosmology who claims that the universe is actually 26.7 billion years old. I've invited him on the show so he can make a case for his claims! Professor Gupta is a theoretical physicist currently teaching astrophysics to senior undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Ottawa. His research focuses on astrophysics, cosmology, general relativity, the dynamics of the universe under evolutionary physical constants beyond the standard model, CMB, JWST, BAO, Big Bang nucleosynthesis, the large-scale structure and formation of galaxies, dark matter, and dark energy.  To say I am thrilled to have him on the show for the second time would be an understatement.  So, without further ado, let’s jump right in!  Key Takeaways: 00:00 Intro 01:50 Judging Rajendra’s paper  05:34 Changing cosmic constants  10:45 Tired light hypothesis  13:58 Falsifying the notion that the universe is 26 billion years old  18:57 Falsifying tired light  21:41 The Big Bang and galaxy formation  28:31 Hybrid model of dark energy  33:27 The expanding universe  36:41 Audience questions 44:20 Outro — Additional resources: 📝 Get one month of Snipd Premium for free with this link: https://get.snipd.com/Cx7S/brianSnipd Snipd lets you take Smart Notes 🧠 with AI 💡 — it’s my favorite podcast player 😀 ! ➡️ Learn more about Rajendra Gupta: 💻 University website: https://www.uottawa.ca/faculty-science/professors/rajendra-gupta ➡️ Follow me on your fav platforms: ✖️ Twitter: https://twitter.com/DrBrianKeating  🔔 YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/DrBrianKeating?sub_confirmation=1  📝 Join my mailing list: https://briankeating.com/list  ✍️ Check out my blog: https://briankeating.com/cosmic-musings/  🎙️ Follow my podcast: https://briankeating.com/podcast Into the Impossible with Brian Keating is a podcast dedicated to all those who want to explore the universe within and beyond the known.
