Just in time for the previous discussion of universes and probabilities, someone is trying to find proof of other universes. But this really brings out the issue of definition of terms. In truth, "universe" by definition means the whole of reality. So, a new part of the universe is being sought. A "mirror world" that would extend our understanding of what the "universe" as a whole really is.


At Oak Ridge National Laboratory in eastern Tennessee, physicist Leah Broussard is trying to open a portal to a parallel universe.

She calls it an “oscillation” that would lead her to “mirror matter,” but the idea is fundamentally the same. In a series of experiments she plans to run at Oak Ridge this summer, Broussard will send a beam of subatomic particles down a 50-foot tunnel, past a powerful magnet and into an impenetrable wall. If the setup is just right — and if the universe cooperates — some of those particles will transform into mirror-image versions of themselves, allowing them to tunnel right through the wall. And if that happens, Broussard will have uncovered the first evidence of a mirror world right alongside our own.
