Well, it's really and undersensationalization. Hansons argument
entails that, at every moment, we split off into a large number of
different universes, and in almost all of those universes, we are
immediately destroyed. So the article is wrong to say that "our
universe" may one day be destroyed. It should more properly say, you
WILL be destroyed (many times over) one femtosecond from now.
