'Parallel universes DO exist': Multiple versions of us are living in alternate worlds that interact with each other, theory claims The parallel worlds constantly influence one another, because, instead of a collapse in which quantum particles 'choose' to occupy one state or another, they in fact occupy both simultaneously. The theory could resolve some of the irregularities in quantum mechanics, it may even create possibility of one day testing for these worlds..

The famous observatory is about to celebrate its 25th birthday.

Another of physics' reigning theories, the standard model describes the collection of fundamental particles currently thought to make up our universe. The theory can be encapsulated in a main equation called the standard model Lagrangian (named after the 18th-century French mathematician and astronomer Joseph Louis Lagrange), which was chosen by theoretical physicist Lance Dixon of the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in California as his favorite formula. "It has ...
