Discover has an article on the theory that our "universe may be but one of perhaps infinitely many universes in an inconceivably vast multi verse." A graf:

Supporters of the multiverse theory say that critics are on the wrong side of history. “Throughout the history of science, the universe has always gotten bigger,” Carr says. “We've gone from geocentric to heliocentric to galactocentric. Then in the 1920s there was this huge shift when we realized that our galaxy wasn't the universe. I just see this as one more step in the progression. Every time this expansion has occurred, the more conservative scientists have said, 'This isn't science.' This is just the same process repeating itself.”

Evolution blogger Jason Rosenhouse adds his two cents.
