Join Macquarie University and Astralis online at the upcoming 2021 Allison-Levick Lecture, presented by the Commonwealth Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources.

The mysteries of the multiverse.

We imagine ours is the only reality. But some scientists and philosophers argue that there are many, perhaps an infinite number, of possible worlds that run parallel to our own.


The Astronomer Royal for Scotland, Professor Catherine Heymans, will present the astronomical observations that lend support to this multiverse theory. We'll then leave it to you to discuss whether this idea is a credible version of the Universe or a wild fantasy and evidence that mathematics is no guide to reality.
