+ - First Evidence of Another Universe? 2

Submitted by blamanj
blamanj (253811) writes "Three months ago, astronomers announced the discovery of a large hole at the edge of our universe. Now, Dr. Laura Mersini-Houghton thinks she knows what that means. (Subscription req'd at New Scientist site, there's also an overview here.) According to string theory, there are many universes besides our own. Her team says that smaller universes are positioned at the edge of our universe, and because of gravitational interactions, they can be observed, and they're willing to make a prediction. The recently discovered void is in the northern hemisphere. They contend another one will be found in the southern hemisphere."

First Evidence of Another Universe?

  • Dr. Laura says it's the "unmistakable imprint of another universe beyond the edge of our own."

    The "unmistakable" part of that statement reeks of overconfidence. By no means has there emerged a consensus that her interpretation is the correct one.

When some people discover the truth, they just can't understand why everybody isn't eager to hear it.
