Lucretius' Spear

Lucretius' Spear

Are the boundaries to the universe finite? If so, what exists beyond them? Lucretius wondered this in his work, On the Nature of Things. If the universe is infinite, how do we fit in? This podcast aims at explaining that.

A growing number of astronomers believe there is something beyond our Universe, and new evidence supports this view. Dr Sasha Kashlinsky and his team from the NASA (National Aeronautical and Space Administration) Goddard Space Flight Center, have provided further evidence to support the concept of a universe beyond our own. Their paper was published just last month in the prestigious journal, The Astrophysical Journal Letters*. If correct, this is one of the greatest scientific discoveries of our time, and one that must change our beliefs in the nature of reality.
