Before the Big Bang

Laura Mersini-Houghton In Conversation With David Malone

What came before the Big Bang, and what exists outside of the universe it created? Join one of the world’s most celebrated cosmologists for a revolutionary new account of our universe’s creation.

Until recently, scientists could only guess at what lay past the edge of spacetime. But today new scientific tools are giving us the ability to peer beyond the limits of our universe and test our theories about what is there.

Laura Mersini-Houghton’s ground-breaking research suggests that we sit in a quantum landscape whose peaks and valleys hide a multitude of other universes, and whose topography holds the secret to the origins of existence itself.

In conversation with science filmmaker David Malone, Laura will take us on a mind-expanding journey through the multiverse, helping to reshape your understanding of humanity’s place in the unfathomable vastness of the cosmos.
