People do it, birds do it, and now quantum physicists do it: Gossip. Right now there are TWO competing particle accelerators smashing together subatomic particles–CERN (the Large Hadron Collider, which started operating outside Geneva) and the less well-known Tevatron, at the Fermi Laboratory in Illinois. Not only are these two smashers competing for information about new elementary particles, they are also generating lots of scientific gossip.
Scientists think we live in a "multiverse" consisting of an infinite number of parallel universes (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to these shows). Researchers have discovered four circular patterns in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) that could be "bruises" that our universe has incurred from being bumped four times by other universes.
