Great Debate: Parallel Realities

We live in one universe. Is it unique? Is it required? How can we find out? These issues touch on the forefront of particle physics and cosmology, from the Large Hadron Collider to the edges of the visible Universe. This panel will bring together the leading scientists and thinkers working at both these frontiers to discuss how we can probe the fundamental fabric of reality. Hang on to your hats.

    AMAZING. Nobel laureates talking about the very brink of human knowledge about the universe. What more can you freakin' ask for?

    Disappointed. Sound quality was poor. The speakers spent minimal time on the subject of parallel universes. Didn't need to attend to learn that it is difficult if not impossible to know if a parallel universe exists. The presentations were very basic. Nothing new or any detail for anyone that has taken a level one astronomy or particle physics course or done any reading on the subjects.

      The Origins Project discussion last year was more in-depth. I imagine the one coming up in April with Dawkins will have deeper content.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
