A Step into Parallel Universes
Parallel universes really do exist,
according to a mathematical discovery by Oxford scientists described by one expert
as “one of the most important developments in the history of science”.
The parallel universe theory, first proposed in 1950 by the US physicist Hugh Everett,
helps explain mysteries of quantum mechanics that have baffled scientists for decades,
it is claimed.
According to quantum mechanics, nothing at the subatomic scale can really be said to exist until it is observed.
Until then, particles occupy nebulous “superposition” states,
in which they can have simultaneous “up” and “down” spins,
or appear to be in different places at the same time.
