Within pokemon history what would actually change had the yellow guy been slightly more or slightly less yellow?
‘The equations of string theory, which necessarily includes branes, only make sense in 9 space dimensions, rather than the 3 we appear to observe.’
Strings live in a 9-dimensional space, and when time is included as another dimension, this makes ten.
In his book 'The Universe in Your Hand', Dr Christophe Galfard describes a thought experiment, that shows what it might look like if we were able to travel between these dimensions.
'You see what you think might be black holes linking nearby branes through a tube of distorted spacetime, with gravity from each brane attracting others' he said.
'You suddenly wonder if, by any chance, there might be other people living in those branes.
'Could there black holes be a passage between your world and theirs?'
Using the Large Hardon Collider at CERN in Geneva, researchers are looking for signs of extra dimensions, and one of these is tiny black holes.
‘The LHC could make small black holes if there are extra dimensions of the right size,’ Dr White added.
‘These would decay very quickly but leave a dramatic burst of radiation in the detectors!’
'A mountain-sized black hole would give off X-rays and gamma rays, at a rate of about 10 million megawatts, enough to power the world's electricity supply,' Professor Hawking said.
'According to some theories, the universe we experience is just a four dimensional surface in a ten or eleven dimensional space,' Professor Hawking explained.
'We wouldn't see these extra dimensions because light wouldn't propagate through them but only through the four dimensions of our universe.
'Gravity, however, would affect the extra dimensions and would be much stronger than in our universe. This would make it much easier to form a little black hole in the extra dimensions.'
It could be possible to observe Professor Hawking's theory at the Large Hadron Collider, at CERN in Switzerland.
Some of the collisions made at CERN could create micro black holes which would radiate particles in a pattern that would be easy to recognise.
