THERE'S A RECIPE for our universe. Screw up the ingredients and your cosmological soufflé collapses into a messy goo, or explodes and splatters all over your oven and burns and sets off the smoke detector (an all-too-typical situation in my kitchen). If we were smarter and better at physics, we'd call this concept The Fine Tuned Universe.

IF any of the important physical constants in our universe, like the strength of the strong force which holds the atomic nucleus together, or say... the strength of the force of gravity were changed, we would never be born, and perhaps the universe itself may have had a very short life.

WTiF would happen if we turned up the gravity dial??? What if we turned it PAST eleven??? Omg, this is one hell of an exciting and enlightening episode, check it out!
