Tmperature of universe and its age

  1. Apr 21, 2004 #1
    If there are particles in the vacuum which obey the heisenberg
    relation e x t = h bar, then if they have a mass of 10^- 68 kg-an
    energy of 10^ - 51 J-
    they cannot lose this energy before 10^ 17 seconds have elapsed -
    about the current age of the universe.When they lose their energy they
    could do work.
    Could they slow down an accelerating universe?
    If these particles had a smaller mass this would give us the maximum
    time the universe can expand for.And allow us to calculate its minimum
    Any thoughts on this?
