25: TIME TRAVEL & THE MULTIVERSE: Super Massive Black Holes, oumuamua, Matt Haig, Time Slips, Time Dilation & more…

My God, it’s full of stars… Thanks Hal… How beautiful is that? Yes, this week we get sciencey and oh, how our minds are scrambled! This episode Geordie & Michelle look at quantum-y things like the multiverse, time travel and more, starting with Geordie’s revelation about a super hungry Super Massive Black Hole that’s been discovered by Australian scientists. Apparently it eats the equivalent of one Earth every second  – WHAT?! – and it shines 7,000 times brighter than all the light from our own galaxy. Plus she natters about 2001: A Space Odyssey, an interstellar object floating randomly in space called Oumuamua, a fascinating Time Slip incident in Liverpool plus Michelle compares the multiverse theory to a giant eating a Malteser. Tune in to hear all this and more!

What would you change if you could go back in time? What kind of life you could have had if only you’d made even one different decision? These questions and more were inspired by Michelle reading How To Stop Time by Matt Haig, which is a gorgeous time-skipping novel about the power of love and the point of living, which Michelle basically reviews in this episode.  She then talks about The Midnight Library, another Matt Haig book, about a place between life and death where you can try on different lives the way you’d try on a coat… Michelle then gets very confused about Einstein’s time-travel theory that’s part of his special relativity theory and time dilation, but she has some interesting info about time gain and GPS satellites. She also discusses some real-life time travellers and  about what she might change if only she’d bought those 9 Bitcoins…

We hope you enjoy this week’s episode – and wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
