Hyperspace: A Scientific Odyssey through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, and the Tenth DimensionOxford University Press #ad - Why all the excitement? as the author points out, electromagnetism, scientists have puzzled over why the basic forces of the cosmos--gravity, for over half a century, and the strong and weak nuclear forces--require markedly different mathematical descriptions. The theory of hyperspace or higher dimensional space--and its newest wrinkle, with adherents in every major research laboratory in the world, superstring theory--stand at the center of this revolution, including several Nobel laureates.

With hyperspace, he has produced a book for general readers which conveys the vitality of the field and the excitement as scientists grapple with the meaning of space and time. Are there other dimensions beyond our own? is time travel possible? Can we change the past? Are there gateways to parallel universes? All of us have pondered such questions, but there was a time when scientists dismissed these notions as outlandish speculations.
If so, it would be the crowning achievement of 2, 000 years of scientific investigation into matter and its forces.
