The Science Behind Rick and Morty

The world of pop-science often treads a very thin line between fact and fiction. However, there's a few shows which are more grounded in truth than all the others and at the top of that pile lies Rick and Morty.

Originally laid out as a parody of Back to the Future "Rick and Mharty" eventually evolved into one of the most successful and popular shows of the last decade.

It frequently touches on some of the more complex elements of science and philosophy: (Multiverse theory, the question of love, genetic engineering, mind control and time travel) and does so with a surprising level of depth.

But when the aroma left by the show's numerous fart jokes has left the room how accurate is the science in Rick and Morty? I put on my lab coat, jumped in the studio and tried to find out more.
