The new experiment will fire a beam of neutrons at an impenetrable wall. On the other side of the wall, a neutron detector will be set up, which normally would expect to detect nothing. But if the detector does register the presence of neutrons, the theory is that they may have gone through the wall by “oscillating” into the mirror world – becoming mirror neutrons – and reappearing in this universe, and more specifically the lab in Tennessee.

What do we do if it transpires we’re actually the ‘dark’ universe?
Where is the laughing and simultaneously crying emoticon when you need it? :devilish:

There is a good scifi series called Counterpart which does this very well.

If you add the tear from :cry: to the laughing face, :LOL:, you get an emoticon which shows someone laughing so much that they can't help dribbling.

I don't know about you, but I don't think that's a particularly good look.

Just to be clear, they do the mirror universe thing well, not the cry/laugh thing...
