Title: The Mandela Effect

Abstract

The Mandela effect is an idea that people move between parallel universes. Its name arises because some people have firm memories of Nelson Mandela dying in prison, when in fact he was released and went on to be President of South Africa. In this video, Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln explains to his pet Albert why this is such a silly idea.
