The thought of parallel universes would almost seem to be a most unlikely prediction of our place in relativity but there have been some amazingly bizzare coinsidances and occurances that relate directly to the theory, In both my life yours and the rest of the world.
The sheer idea of parallel universes was not taken seriously until after experiments with properties of light. During these experiements scientists and researchers noted that during the double slit test , a test where a… Continue

“Happy is he who gets to know the reasons for things”. I wish this 2000 year-old statement from Virgil was enough to deal with the question that must plague teachers all over the world — “what’s the point of this?” But, as someone who’s just returned to the teaching profession after a seven-year break, I can assure you it’s not.
I teach at an inner city comprehensive school where science, as in all UK schools, is compulsory for all… Continue
