Share shares ‘Each universe is sort of like a soap bubble embedded in the cosmic void of the multiverse, expanding from its own Big Bang. Our galaxy, the Milky Way pictured is just one of billion galaxies in the universe, and one theory suggests our universe could be only one of a vast number of universes, popping up like soap bubbles.
Much of what scientists know about the relative contributions of dark matter and dark energy comes from the relic radiation left behind from the Big Bang, called the cosmic microwave background CMB. We can measure the CMB by looking far into the distant universe. Information can only travel at the speed of light, meaning that if we look far enough away we can see events that happened in the past. Looking at the sun, you see it as it was eight minutes ago because the light takes eight minutes to reach us.
In a sense the CMB is a glimpse into the very start of our universe. The theory says that in each one of these universes, the laws of physics are completely different. Physics in our universe is dictated by a number of different physical constraints, like how strong the force of gravity is or how strongly atoms bond together.
These numbers would be different in each different universe — basically dictated by a roll of the dice. In the vast majority of those other universes, life could not form. But if you roll the dice an infinite number of times, in one of the universes the numbers would be right for forming life.

Some heir locators charged with tracking down missing beneficiaries and reuniting them with their lost inheritances are using hard-sell techniques to grab a large proportion, sometimes nearly a third, of the estates. With around two-thirds of Britons dying without a will, heir locators have lots of opportunity to cash in. Heir Hunters, the popular BBC show, has fuelled interest. And activities by unethical individuals have given rise to a separate phishing scam.

Australia As the world mourns the death of Nelson Mandela, former leading Australian political figures have recalled the country’s role in ending apartheid in South Africa and freeing Mr Mandela from prison. Australia played an influential role in devising and enforcing the international sanctions that helped end South Africa’s controversial system of racial segregation. Beginning in the early s, prime minister Gough Whitlam banned racially-selected sporting teams from visiting Australia.
Following Mr Whitlam, prime minister Malcolm Fraser was one of the first international figures to visit Mr Mandela in prison. He also took a deep interest in trying to isolate South Africa. But international sanctions against apartheid-era South Africa were slow to be introduced and to pose any real effect on influencing South Africa. Economic and trade sanctions gathered pace in the s but towards the end of that decade, opponents of apartheid decided much stronger action was needed to bring about change.

Here is everything we know so far about the take-over. What went wrong for the company? What will happen to the 10, pension holders? The Pension Protection Fund PPF are currently expecting to carry out an month assessment as to the condition of the pension fund. If the pension fund is correctly valued, it could be picked up by another insurance firm. Are they still accepting gift cards?
What if I have an outstanding order online? While no official guarantee has been given by Mr Ashley, the official line seems to be that business will continue as usual and orders will be honoured according to their initial delivery date.

However this figure could change, after Ashley began negotiations with landlords over new rental costs for each store.
House of Frasers employ around 17, people in the UK and Ireland. The number of jobs potentially at risk will become more clear once Mr Ashley completes negotiations with landlords.
