Summary Catalyst Special on the universe, examining some of the Big Questions, including answers from several of the world's top astrophysicists.Do you have an identical twin, living in a parallel universe? Was our cosmos created by an alien teenager in his garage? Has the universe been finetuned so that intelligent beings like you and me can live in it? This half-hour Catalyst special on the universe examines some of the Big Questions. Graham Phillips crosses the world seeking answers from several of the world's top astrophysicists. On the journey he comes across some mind-bending ideas, from monster black holes and the 'God' particle - the Higgs boson, recently discovered at the Swiss atom smasher - to the idea that we could live in a multiverse: a vast region where our universe is just one of many.And Professor Paul Davies, physicist and author of the bestselling book The Mind of God, gives a controversial answer to whether the universe has been set up just for us.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Series Producer Ingrid Arnott
