In the desolate darkness of space it is difficult to imagine we are anything but alone in the cosmos.
But imagine for a moment that we are not alone, but in fact one of an infinite number of parallel universes that contain infinite versions of ourselves.
In one universe you might be president of the United States, while in another you could be made of gelatin.
This is the theory of the ‘multiverse’, and a new study has found that a mysterious ‘Cold Spot’ in space could prove our universe is merely one of an everlasting string of realities.
THE ‘COLD SPOT’
The Cold Spot was produced when the universe formed more than 13 billion years ago.
It was first spotted by Nasa’s WMAP satellite in 2004, a sighting that was confirmed by the ESA’s Planck mission in 2013.
