Theoretical Physicist & Futurist
November 18, 2015 – Wednesday, 8pm
Dr. Michio Kaku is a theoretical physicist, best-selling author, and popularizer of science. As the co-founder of string field theory (a branch of string theory), he continues Einstein’s search to unite the four fundamental forces of nature into one unified theory that will summarize all the physical laws of the universe.
The author of numerous international bestsellers, Dr. Kaku’s most recent book is Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100. Based on interviews with over 300 of the world’s top scientists, he presents revolutionary developments in medicine, computers, quantum physics, and space travel that will forever change our way of life and alter the course of civilization itself. His newest book, The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind, tackles the most fascinating and complex object in the known universe: the human brain.
A regular commentator on Tech-TV, he was featured in the full-length 90-minute feature film Me and Isaac Newton, which was nominated for an Emmy in 2001. Starting in 2008, he became a regular host on the Science Channel/Discovery Channel, hosting their Sunday lineup of shows. He also hosts his own national weekly radio program which airs in 130 cities in the US called “Science Fantastic.” It is the largest nationally syndicated science radio show on commercial radio in the United States, and perhaps the world.
