Is our Universe a Hologram?

I’ve posted a lot of links lately, but I really think this will catch your interest.

An article on the Nature News website describes recent work published by Japanese physicists suggest that the long debated ‘string theory’ could actually be true, and that our universe could be a hologram of a cosmos with no gravity.

This theory was suggested by Maldacena in 1997, and has been made even more famous by fictional physicist Sheldon Cooper in the popular sitcom Big Bang Theory.

Now, simulations provide compelling evidence for this theory, and could allow the nature of our own universe to be better understood.

Cool stuff!
