The Vacuum Catastrophe

Authors: Eran Sinbar

The Heisenberg uncertainty principle leads us to the conclusion that even the vacuum has fluctuations of energy (zero point energy) which increases as the measurement time decreases. This energy is assumed to be generated by virtual particle pairs of matter and anti-matter that pop in and out of existence. This strange phenomena was demonstrated through the Casimir effect. This vacuum energy is supposed to be represented by Einstein’s cosmological constant and assumed to be the source for the dark energy which was measured by the accelerating expansion of the universe.When integrating all the expected energy due to vacuum fluctuations we receive an expected dark energy which is larger in 120 orders of magnitude from the observed expansion of the universe. This prediction failure of the theory versus observations leads to the vacuum catastrophe. This paper will suggest an approach that will enable to solve this major failure between predictions and observations.
