1 The Science of Parallel and Alternate UniversesThe idea that our Universe could be a small component within a vast assemblage of other universes that together make up a "multiverse" has been treated by physicists as intriguing, but so far it has remained in the realm of theory without any experimental tests that could support it.Scientists now believe there may really be a parallel universe - in fact, there may be an infinite number of parallel universes, and we just happen to live in one of them. These other universes contain space, time and strange forms of exotic matter. Some of them may even contain you, in a slightly different form. Astonishingly, scientists believe that these parallel universes exist less than one millimeter away from us. In fact, our gravity may just be a weak signal leaking out of another universe into ours.Parallel universes are believed to be a specialized form of alternate universe - alternative universes that existed in parallel with each other - but the terms aren't complete synonyms. A parallel universe has no impact upon another parallel universe; it can be separated by only a millisecond of time and a nanometer of space, without ever having contact. Conversely, a fully alternate universe is when, because of the inherent weakness at the point, that one universe splits from the other.For years, parallel universes were a staple of Doctor Who and the Twilight Zone. Science fiction writers loved to speculate on the possible other universes, which might exist. In one, they said, Elvis Presley might still be alive or in another the British Empire might still be going strong. Serious scientists dismissed all this speculation as absurd. But now it seems the speculation wasn't absurd enough. Parallel universes really do exist and they are...
