Scientists Want To Open A Portal To Another Universe. The existence of a mirror universe may be revealed sooner than we think. While science fiction has proposed the idea of quantum realms and alternate universes for quite some time, such places that exist beyond fiction may be within our grasp. In a laboratory in eastern Tennessee, according to NBC News, physicist Leah Broussard is conducting an experiment, the intention of which is to essentially open a portal to another universe, one that may be quite like our own. Broussard intends to shoot a beam of subatomic particles down a long tunnel. If all goes to plan, this may prove the existence of a mirror universe. If the beam can go through an impenetrable wall, some of the particles will turn into mirror images of themselves. Since all neutrons should be exactly the same, this mirror image of the particles would mean that Broussard’s theory is correct. There may be a mirror universe in our midst. While this an exciting development, a mirror universe may not be exactly what comes to mind when we think of it. Shows like Star Trek explored this idea, even going as far to suggest there are evil counterparts of human beings, floating around in another universe.
Humans have long tried to explain what dark matter is. Fictional worlds have tried to explain this, such as HBO Max’s His Dark Materials. In His Dark Materials, what is referred to as ‘Dust’ is actually just dark matter. The religious fanatics of The Magisterium believe that Dust is tangible sin and is what causes human being’s worst impulses. But the reality may be more interesting.
