Multiverse

Source: ENN, Date: February , 2010

Whether life exists elsewhere in our universe is a long standing mystery. But for some scientists, there’s another interesting question: could there be life in a universe significantly different from our own?Recently physicists at MIT have shown that in theory, alternate universes could be quite congenial to life, even if their physical laws are very different from our own.are dramatically altered, life may find a way.Modern cosmology theory holds that our universe may be just one in a vast collection of universes known as the multiverse.

The multiverse is the hypothetical set of multiple possible universes (including our universe) that together comprise everything that physically exists: the entirety of space and time, all forms of matter, energy and momentum, and the physical laws and constants that govern them. Each universe will have some variation of the laws of physics.
