Brane and Brane, what is Brain? No, not that kind of brain, with an i. The classic Star Trek, the original Series with a third season masterpiece Spock's brain brain. No, this episode of Walkabout the Galaxy is brought tio you by "brane" with an e, as in membrane. Confused? Wtf? No, WtG. But still, wtf with the branes. Branes are just things going through space time just like the Astroquarks on their Walkabout the Galaxy. You've got your P branes, and your D branes, which are submanifolds at six dimensional calabi manifolds. Your M2 branes, your M5 branes, and string theory, and super gravity theories. As we were saying, brain and brane, what is brane. Well, if you're feeling insane in the membrane, then just sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of Walkabout the Galaxy, courtesy of branes, where the Astroquarks take you on a jargon free exploration of the universe, to tickle your brain without any further mention of membranes.
