DR. MICHIO KAKU
Dr. Michio Kaku is one of the most recognized figures in science in the world today. It is an internationally recognized authority in two areas. The first is Einstein's Unified Field Theory, which Dr. Kaku is trying to complete. The other is predicting trends that affect business, medicine, finance, and our way of life, based on the latest scientific research. He has written four NY Times best sellers. His most recent is The Future of Humanity, which projects the future of the space program decades to centuries into the future. Its previous best-seller, The Future of the Mind, reached # 1 on the NY Times, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble bestseller lists, making it the nation's top nonfiction hardcover book. . He appears regularly on national and international television, and hosts numerous science radio and television programs.
His Facebook site has more than 3 million followers and more than 1 million people receive his tweets per week. Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair in Theoretical Physics at the City Univ. Of new york. He graduated from Harvard University in 1968 (summa cum laude and first in his physics class). He received his Ph.D. in physics from the univ. from Berkeley in 1972, and has been a professor at CUNY for nearly 30 years. He has also taught at Harvard and Princeton. Your goal is to complete Einstein's dream of a "theory of everything," to derive an equation, perhaps no more than an inch long, that will summarize all the physical laws of the universe. He is the co-founder of string theory, a major branch of string theory, which is the leading candidate today for the theory of everything. His Ph.D. level textbooks are required in many of the world's leading physics laboratories.
He is the author of several international best-sellers. In addition to The Future of Humanity and The Future of the Mind, his other New York Times bestsellers include Physics of the Future and Physics of the Impossible.
