Do We Live in a Multiverse?- Ask a Spaceman!

What’s the difference between the universe and the multiverse? How can cosmic inflation make bubble universes? Do those universes get different physics? If I travel far enough away, will I meet…myself? I discuss these questions and more in today’s Ask a Spaceman!

Beyond the Planck Scale - Ask a Spaceman!

How did Max Planck accidentally discover quantum mechanics? Why is his constant so special? What happens at the quantum level? I discuss these questions and more in today’s Ask a Spaceman!
