Neil deGrasse Tyson and Sean Carroll Get Philosophical About the Universe

From StarTalk.

Why is there something instead of nothing? Neil deGrasse Tyson and Sean Carroll go deep when talking about this philosophical question. Are there models of the universe that give us the answer?

Are there parallel universes? Sean Carroll gives us a lesson on the Many-Worlds Interpretation of the universe. What is the role of the observer in quantum mechanics and how does it explain things like the "double-slit experiment"? Are there ways to experimentally verify ‘Many-Worlds’? Find out during this podcast highlight.
