MIAMI, FL - MARCH 22: Marche Curry, who is a college student and unable to afford insurance, visits her doctors office during a routine checkup at the Jessie Trice Center for Community Health clinic on March 22, 2012 in Miami, Florida. Starting on March 26, 2012 the arguments begin on the Affordable Care Act before the U.S. Supreme Court. The Act, which was set into law by U.S. President Barack Obama, helps many in need of health care and it also gives grant money to fund the Jessie Trice Center for Community Health clinic, which in turn helps people like Marche Curry who would otherwise not have access to affordable health care.

The idea of the multiverse — an infinite number of universes co-existing with our own — has a philosophical and mathematical appeal, at least if you’re a follower of string theory.
