A Big Bang in a Little Room
Can we make a baby universe -- complete with stars, galaxies, planets and people -- in a particle accelerator? Cosmologist Eduardo Guendelman explains how it may be possible -- and how the theory could help the search for a model of quantum gravity. Recorded at the Physics Days Meeting at the Eastern Mediterranean University. Plus we discuss the new popular physics book on building a DIY comsos, by Zeeya Merali.
