You can  read about this at https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2024/04/15/worlds-top-cosmologists-convene-to-question-conventional-view-of-the-universe/  …. which comes courtesy of the Guardian newspaper. It concerns an upcoming meeting of the Royal Society which will discuss the basic model of the universe, first formulated as long ago as 1922. In this model the universe is a vast even expanse with no notable features – as a result of expansion following Big Bang. It is self replicating. However, recent astronomical observations via the James Webb Space Telescope appear to challenge the basic model – according to Professor Subir Sarkar, a cosmologist at Oxford University. He says the theoretical features behind the model are past their sell by date.

There is no mention of electricity in space – in case you might be wondering. We can therefore expect a bit of tinkering.
