Submission + - First observational test of the 'multiverse'->

An anonymous reader writes: The theory that our universe is contained inside a bubble, and that multiple alternative universes exist inside their own bubbles – making up the ‘multiverse’ – is being tested observationally by UK physicists, who are searching for disk-like collision patterns in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation. Though CMB is generally thought of as a uniform schmere of radiation extending in all direction in our universe, in fact, they say, if a multiverse exists, there ought to be imprints, trapped in the muck like footprints, of where our universe banged into others.
