The Universe Next Door: A Journey Through 57 Alternative Realities, Parallel Worlds and Possible Futures

Author(s): New Scientist


You are here. But what if you weren't? You could easily have ended up in a different reality altogether, where dinosaurs still rule the Earth, the Russians got to the Moon first, time flows backwards or absolutely everyone is vegetarian.

Imagine if . . . we could see the future,
OR we learned to talk to animals,
OR robots outsmarted us,
OR we colonised Mars,
OR it really was the end of the world.

Boldly go with New Scientist on a thrilling journey through 57 incredible but utterly possible parallel universes, thought experiments and alternate timelines - each shining a surprising and unexpected spotlight onto our own. It's life but not as we know it.
