Anthropic principle
In astrophysics and cosmology, the anthropic principle (from Greek anthropos, meaning "human") is the philosophical consideration that observations of the physical Universe must be compatible...
Confronting the Multiverse: What 'Infinite Universes' Would Mean
If we are living in a multiverse, will we ever really know?
Researchers say cosmic bruising may explain strange lights
PASADENA, Calif., Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Caltech cosmologist Ranga-Ram Chary thinks he may have found evidence of a parallel universe. In a new study, published in the Astrophysical Journal, Chary suggests ...
Large Hadron Collider data may unearth a parallel universe
The 'atom smasher' at Cern is turned up to its highest levels in a bid to detect miniature black holes, which are considered a key sign of a 'multiverse'. And data collected since June is now being an...
The Case For Spectral Distortions In The Cosmic Microwave Background
Half a century ago, astronomers got their first look at the infant universe: a haze of soft light that suffused the entire sky. This cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation seemed to indicate that...
Higgs Boson Mass Explained In New Theory
Three physicists who have been collaborating in the San Francisco Bay Area over the past year have devised a new solution to a mystery that has beleaguered their field for more than 30 years. This pro...
A multiverse hiding in the Large Hadron Collider
Physicists will be looking for mini black holes when the Large Hadron Collider restarts this month. It's impossible for the LHC to generate any sort of black hole that would be remotely unsafe, but th...
4 Reasons We May Live in a Multiverse
The universe we live in might not be the only one out there in space. In fact, our universe could be just one of an endless number of universes making up a "multiverse." Though the concept may draw ou...
What is the Multiverse, and why do we think it exists?
An extraordinarily simple explanation of the most mind-boggling concept of modern science.
Parallel worlds exist: scientific evidence
Recent scientific findings prove the concept of the multiverse claiming that our universe is just a 'bubble' in a system of interconnected worlds
The Case for Parallel Universes
Why the multiverse, crazy as it sounds, is a solid scientific idea
Physicists create world’s first multiverse of universes in the lab
Researchers at the University of Maryland, College Park and Towson University are reporting that they have created multiple universes inside a laboratory-created multiverse -- a world first.

Cosmic inflation
In physical cosmology, cosmic inflation, cosmological inflation, or just inflation is the exponential expansion of space in the early universe. The inflationary epoch lasted from 10 seconds after the ...
String theory landscape
The string theory landscape refers to the huge number of possible false vacua in string theory. The large number of theoretically allowed configurations has prompted suggestions that certain physical ...
Ergodic hypothesis
In physics and thermodynamics, the ergodic hypothesis says that, over long periods of time, the time spent by a system in some region of the phase space of microstates with the same energy is proporti...
