The Multiverse

- Kiara Jacob, FYBSc


In the past decade, scientists, especially cosmologists, have been considering the idea that our universe is not the only one in existence, that there could be an infinite number of universes- an entire multiverse beyond the confines of what we see. While this idea may seem ludicrous or straight out of science fiction, the very fact that it is a point of contention in the scientific community has transformed it from a bizarre idea to a hypothesis that is not only a consequence of some of our biggest theories, but one that could also hold answers to key questions about our very existence.
