Parallel Worlds

Parallel Worlds

In brilliantly clear prose Kaku illuminates central issues around the survival of human civilization with recent, revolutionary insights from physics, and asks: 

Is our universe alone?

Are there other universes?

Will we one day escape into a parallel universe?

Michio Kaku highlights the recent revolution in theoretical physics, analyses the unprecedented nature of a global culture, and reminds us that the concept of wormholes and parallel universes was born in Oxford and first popularised through the adventures of a young girl called Alice.
