Podcaster: Fraser Cain & Dr. Pamela Gay
Title: Astronomy Cast Ep. 166: Multiverses
Organization: Astronomy Cast
From November 30, 2009.
What if our Universe was just one in an infinite number of parallel universes; a possible outcome from the specific predictions of quantum mechanics. The idea of multiple universes is common in science fiction, but is there any actual science to back this theory up?
The Wikipedia nomenclature note from Pamela:
“Because, in the English-speaking world, the latter sounds like “your anus”, the former pronunciation also saves embarrassment: as Pamela Gay, an astronomer at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, noted on her podcast, to avoid “being made fun of by any small schoolchildren … when in doubt, don’t emphasize anything and just say /ˈjʊərənəs/. (You’re in us.) And then run, quickly.””
Bio: Fraser Cain is the publisher of Universe Today and Dr. Pamela Gay is a Senior Scientist at Planetary Science Institute and a Director of CosmoQuest. They team up to do Astronomy Cast, a weekly facts-based journey through the cosmos
