The Science of Parallel Universes

Bubbles, strings and cats used to explain different multi-universe theories


In the latest edition of Henry Reich's MinutePhysics series on "the universe", we learn about some of the different scientific theories behind the idea of parallel universes, none of which have been proven through experiment, but are still fun to talk about.

Often used by science fiction writers and moviemakers (see the last Star Trek movie as an example), the ideas of parallel universes are often cool, but could they have a basis in physical science? Reich explains more in his video.

Now I just need to figure out how to get to the parallel universe in which this blog gets a million page views per month. That's got to be easier than figuring out SEO or Google News algorithms, right?
