University of Portsmouth research stretches across the disciplines to help us understand our world better. And in today’s episode of Life Solved we hear from one academic who might be about to transform our concept of reality!

Get ready for some complex physics, brilliant theory and a workout for your mind as Melvin takes us through this exciting new theory – and its possible implications!
