Perimeter Associate Faculty member Matthew Johnson and his colleagues are working to bring the multiverse hypothesis, which to some sounds like a fanciful tale, firmly into the realm of testable science.
A 13th century bishop's theory about the formation of the universe has intriguing parallels with the theory of multiple universes. This was uncovered by the the Ordered Universe project at Durham University, which has brought ...
Some top scientists are beginning to worry that a radical idea proposed in 1997 by three University of Delaware physicists may be right.
(Phys.org) —The maths underpinning Darwin's theory of natural selection could explain how the universe may be 'designed' to make black holes.
The theory that our universe is contained inside a bubble, and that multiple alternative universes exist inside their own bubbles making up the 'multiverse' is, for the first time, being tested by physicists.
One model of a hypothetical multiverse has, perhaps appropriately, some similarity to a glass of beer. Imagine an eternal false vacuum thats a bit like a fluid, though not all that much like a fluid since ...
You might think its hard to have a conversation with theoretical physicist Brian Greene. His research specialty is superstring theory, the hypothesis that everything in the universe is made up of miniscule, vibrating ...
Life beyond our universe: Physicists explore the possibility of life in universes with laws different from our own
(PhysOrg.com) -- Whether life exists elsewhere in our universe is a longstanding mystery. But for some scientists, there?s another interesting question: could there be life in a universe significantly different from our own?
(PhysOrg.com) -- Is there anybody out there? In Alejandro Jenkins' case, the question refers not to whether life exists elsewhere in the universe, but whether it exists in other universes outside of our own.
