Frontiers Lecture: The Universe and Beyond with Alexander Vilenkin

Recent developments in cosmology suggest that the Big Bang was not a unique event in the cosmic history and that other Big Bangs constantly erupt in remote parts of the universe, producing new worlds with a great variety of physical properties. Cosmologist Alexander Vilenkin discusses the origin of this new worldview, its possible observational tests, and its implications for the beginning and the end of the universe.
