Hugh Everett: The man who gave us the multiverse - physics-math - 25 September 2014 - New Scientist
"Hugh Everett's many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics arose from what must have been the most world-changing drinking session of all time. One evening in 1954, in a student hall at Princeton University, grad student Everett was drinking sherry with his friends when he came up with the idea that quantum effects cause the universe to constantly split."
