    Default Vacuum decay and possible in our lifetime



    Hello I have been reading up about vacuum decay and that it is very likely to happen very soon due to what lhc has discovered. Question I have is this true? Is vacuum decay happening now and will get us in our lifetime?

    No, not true. If this was a reality, it would be all over the news and the world would be in chaos.

    Since vacuum decay would travel at the speed of light, we'd only know about it when it was upon us. We wouldn't even have time to scream, much less warn and make plans.

    Katie Mack is in Waterloo and according to news articles Waterloo just discovered proof for Hawking radiation, which causes vacuum collapse?

    This was in the merger from 2017 that they found Hawking radiation.

    Hawking radiation does not cause vacuum collapse and has never been observed. Ask questions here:

    I'm no longer paying much attention here.

    According to Hawking radiation and black hole evaporation

    And news articles just proved Hawking radiation from Waterloo in a echo of a black hole from gravitational waves in 2017

    No, you are confused. This forum is dying. I'm no longer posting much here. If you can make your way to the other place indicated I'll be happy to sort this out.
