The Fabric of the Cosmos Episode 4

Today on Far Future Horizons we present the fourth and final episode of Dr. Brian Greene’s acclaimed NOVA documentary series the Fabric of the Cosmos. This instalment explores the possibility that the Universe, in which we live, is but one of an infinite multitude of Universes that make up an infinite Multiverse.

Universe or Multiverse

Hard as it is to swallow, cutting-edge theories are suggesting that our universe may not be the only universe. Instead, it may be just one of an infinite number
of universes that make up the “multiverse.” In this show, Brian Greene takes us on a tour of this brave new theory at the frontier of physics, showing what some of these alternate realities might be like.

Some universes may be almost indistinguishable from our own; others may contain variations of all of us, where we exist but with different families, careers, and life stories. In still others, reality may be so radically different from ours as to be unrecognizable. Brian Greene reveals why this radical new picture of the cosmos is getting serious attention from scientists.

It won’t be easy to prove, but if its right, our understanding of space, time, and our place in the universe will never be the same.

Brian Greene’s book Fabric of the Universe and the accompanying NOVA series  on DVD are available from Amazon.com.
