Cern's atom smasher is about to resume operations in an attempt to detect miniature black holes.
Having been significantly upgraded since its discovery of the elusive Higgs Boson back in 2012, the world's largest particle accelerator is about to embark on a new series of experiments designed to detect tiny black holes.
If it succeeds it could open up a whole new chapter in particle physics which could help to explain the nature of dark matter and prove the existence of parallel universes.
"Just as many parallel sheets of paper, which are two dimensional objects can exist in a third dimension, parallel universes can also exist in higher dimensions," said scientist Mir Faizal.
"Normally, when people think of the multiverse, they think of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, where every possibility is actualised. This is not what we mean by parallel universes. What we mean is real universes in extra dimensions."
