Summary
Some claim it created the universe. Sartre argued it was central to our being. Yet Nothing turns out to be strangely elusive. Scientists can't find it or describe it. Bertrand Russell argued it was just a logical mistake. Is Nothing an illusion, a fictitious error? Or is it a vital key to our understanding of the universe and who we are? The Panel Multiverse cosmologist Laura Mersini-Houghton, CERN physicist John Ellis and philosopher of science and James Ladyman, author of "Every Thing Must Go".
