The Cosmic Shed

Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse

March 1, 2019

There were so many ways this episode could have gone. We explore the wonderful Spider-man into the Spider-verse and the science of multi-verses.


Miles Morales is Spider Man

Ti and Andrew are joined by Professor Jo Dunkley, professor of Physics and Astrophysics at Princeton University and try not to get too tangled up in her  research into the Cosmic Microwave Background or caught in the discussion about Dark Matter before we end up wondering if we really can spark a whole new universe just by typing this word instead of this one.

Professor Jo Dunkley authored Our Universe.

Ben also pops in for a poem. In other words, it's a brand new episode of The Cosmic Shed and it's about Spider-Man.
