Parallel Universes (Many Worlds Theory) in Three Minutes


If you're interested in physics but utterly baffled by the subject (including those of you with advanced degrees in physics) you may enjoy this quick and dirty explanation of the many worlds theory of quantum mechanics.  If you're into science fiction and want a deeper understanding of all of those parallel universe plots, then this will allow you to know more about it than most people (possibly including the people who wrote the story).

If the video below doesn't help you enough, check out this article on How Stuff Works.

If you'd like a lot more information check out MIT's Open Courseware on Quantum Mechanics.
