Creating a child universe

  1. Aug 8, 2010 #1
    Recently I read an article about Japanese scientists trying to create a miniature universe. The article was pretty old, 2006. Does anyone know the status of this experiment, or know where i can read more of their present progress?

    The idea is related to Smolin's cosmic natural selection hypothesis. I presume the paper you are referring to is

    The universe out of a monopole in the laboratory?

    by Sakai, et al.

    He has collaborated on these papers since
