        The Many Worlds Theory Today

        Half a century has passed since 27-year-old Hugh Everett III published a version of his Princeton Ph.D. dissertation in a leading physics journal, introducing the scientific world to his radical theory of parallel universes. In what ways did the theory break from existing theories of the day? How has it fared in those five decades, and where does it stand today in the physics community? Journalist Peter Byrne, author of the biography The Many Worlds of Hugh Everett III, answers these and other questions in this interview from NOVA Online.
