The multiverse challenges science as we know it, and Hawking wasn't pleased with it. But our journey to the edges of time has since reshaped our vision of the cosmos, and ourselves.
A Multiverse—where our Universe is only one of many—might not be as inhospitable to life as previously thought, according to new research.
With a science paper published after his death, Stephen Hawking has revived debate on a deeply divisive question for cosmologists: Is our Universe just one of many in an infinite, ever-expanding "multiverse"?
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 ...
