Parallel Worlds

In this thrilling journey into the mysteries of the cosmos, science author Michio Kaku ( and takes us on a dizzying ride to explore black holes and time machines, multidimensional space and parallel universes which might lie alongside our own. Kaku skillfully guides us through the latest innovations in string theory and its latest iteration, M-theory, which posits that our universe may be just one in an endless multiverse, a singular bubble floating in a sea of infinite bubble universes. If M-theory is proven correct, we may perhaps finally get an answer to the question, ‘What happened before the big bang?’ This is an exciting introduction into the new cutting-edge theories of physics and cosmology from one of the pre-eminent voices in the field.
