Big crunch – the aftermath of Higgs-boson

I have to complete a project on this topic, Big crunch – the aftermath of Higgs-boson, can any 1 please tell me what should i write or what can be written?

Since it is a project topic, giving a detailed answer here is not good.

Big Crunch

In physical cosmology, the Big Crunch is one possible scenario for the ultimate fate of the universe, in which the metric expansion of space eventually reverses and the universe recollapses, ultimately ending as a black hole singularity.

At Present, the universe is expanding. If there is enough matter in the Universe eventually gravitational forces will stop its expansion. When this happens gravity will cause the universe to reverse its direction and begin to collapse under its own weight.


The discovery of Higgs Boson in no way is going to trigger a big crunch.




  1. Big crunch is one of the outcome of a competitions between 2 darkies(Dark Energy and Dark Matter, wow, i like dark chocolate). There is an amount of dark energy in this universe which sends the universe expanding, and there is an amount of dark matter whose gravity pulls universe back. Who will win that Tug-of-war?

    If Dark Energy wins it, the universe will, expand, expand expand, then break up into smaller particles, and at last its will be a field of frozen atoms.

    If Dark Matter wins, Everything collides into the center of the universe, into a singularity. Cant it be a rebirth? another big bang? Who knows 😀 Lets wait and see.
