Science is much stranger than fiction. It suggests that our Universe may just be one of infinitely many which constantly pop in and out of existence like bubbles in a bubble bath. There may be many more dimensions than the three we can see, rolled up so tightly we can't perceive them. And our Universe is riddled with black holes at whose centres time and space tear themselves apart.

Intrigued? This ongoing project with the Millenium Maths Project will bring you the latest research on the forefront of physics with the help of researchers from Queen Mary, University of London. You don't need to be an expert — our articles and podcasts are accessible, intelligent, informative and fun. And apart from finding out about the science you will hear from the researchers themselves, giving you a glimpse of what it's like to work at the frontiers of physics.
