SCIENTIFIC NOTES

Many physicists believe there is a strong connection between the inflationary multiverse and an important feature of string theory; for more see http://www.wgbh.org/programs/NOVA-16/…

Although there is not yet evidence favoring the quantum multiverse over several other interpretations of quantum mechanics, it is still consistent with the results of every quantum experiment ever conducted.
