One of the most renowned scientific figures alive today, Dr. Michio Kaku is widely acclaimed in two separate areas. In pure science, Dr. Kaku is attempting to complete Einstein’s unified field theory. He is equally renowned for his skills as a futurist, using the latest scientific research to predict trends in business, commerce and finance.
Dr. Kaku’s distinguished academic career began at Harvard University, from which he graduated summa cum laude. From there he went on to the University of California at Berkeley to take his Ph.D. in physics and he has been a professor of Theoretical Physics at the City University of New York for nearly thirty years. He is the co-founder of string theory that is the leading candidate for the construction of a theory of everything.
The author of several international bestsellers, Physics of the Future and Physics of the Impossible made the New York Times bestseller lists. For Physics of the Future he interviewed 300 of the world’s most eminent scientists, many of them Nobel laureates, about their expectations of scientific development for the next century. It provides the most authoritative guide to the possibilities of science in the future and was chosen by Amazon as one of its top hundred books of the year.
Dr. Kaku has made countless media appearances, which include the Larry King Show, Nightline, 60 Minutes, Good Morning America, CNN, CNN-Financial, ABC-TV News, Fox News, BBC-TV, BBC-Radio, PBS’s Nova and Innovation, Tech-TV, the David Letterman Show, The Colbert Report, Late Night with Conan O’Brian, and on HBO with Bill Maher. He has also taken part in science specials for PBS, the BBC, Channel 4, the Discovery Channel, the Learning Channel, A&E and the History Channel. He has hosted a 12 part series for the Science Channel based on his bestseller, Physics of the Impossible.
His weekly radio show, Science Fantastic, is aired in 130 cities across the USA and to a wider audience via satellite and Internet. It is the largest nationally syndicated science radio show on commercial radio. Dr. Kaku’s written work has appeared in Time Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Discover Magazine, New Scientist Magazine, Astronomy Magazine and Wired Magazine. The London Sunday Times, New Scientist and Astronomy have all run cover articles written by him.
Dr. Kaku is much in demand for his extensive knowledge and accurate predictions of the developments that will take place in the next twenty years in technology, finance, banking and commerce.
Dr. Michio Kaku is one of the most widely recognized figures in science in the world today. He is an internationally recognized authority in two areas. The first is Einstein’s unified field theory, which Dr. Kaku is attempting to complete. The other is to predict trends affecting business, commerce, and finance based on the latest research in science.
Dr. 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 1st in his physics class). He received his Ph.D. in physics from the Univ. of Calif. at Berkeley in 1972, and been a professor at CUNY for almost 30 years. He has taught at Harvard and Princeton as well. His goal is the complete Einstein’s dream of a “theory of everything,” to derive an equation, perhaps no more than one inch long, which 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 reading at many of the world’s leading physics laboratories.
He is the author of several international bestsellers. He has two New York Times best-sellers, Physics of the Future, and Physics of the Impossible. Other books include Hyperspace and Visions: How Science Will Revolutionize the 21st Century. For Physics of the Future, he interviewed 300 of the world’s top scientists, many of them Nobel Laureates and directors of the largest scientific laboratories, about their vision for the next 20 to 100 years in computers, robotics, biotechnology, space travel, etc. These are the scientists who are inventing the future in their laboratories. The Physics of the Future gives the most authoritative and most authentic understanding of the world of the future. Physics of the Future was also chosen by Amazon as one of the Top 100 Books of 2011. 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.
His NY Times bestseller, Physics of the Impossible, earned glowing reviews from the LA Times, New Scientist Magazine, Guardian Newspaper (UK) and many, many more. It was also the number one science book in the United States.
Dr. Kaku also does considerable public speaking on international radio and TV. He has appeared on the Larry King Show, Nightline, 60 Minutes, Good Morning America, CNN, CNN-Financial, ABC-TV News, Fox News, BBC-TV, BBC-Radio, PBS’s Nova and Innovation, Tech-TV. He has also appeared on the David Letterman Show, The Colbert Report, Late Night with Conan O’Brian, and on HBO with Bill Maher, and has appeared on numerous science specials on PBS, the BBC, Channel 4, the Discovery Channel, the Learning Channel, A&E and the History Channel.
In Jan. 2009, he signed a contract with the Science Channel to host a 12 part science series based on his best-seller, Physics of the Impossible. The series aired in Dec. 1, 2009. In the agreement, the Science Channel also asked Dr. Kaku to be the public face of the Science Channel. He also appears regularly of Fox News.
He also hosts his own national weekly radio program which airs in 130 cities in the US and also the KU national satellite band and internet, called Science Fantastic. It is the largest nationally syndicated science radio show on commercial radio in the United States, and perhaps the world. He has also written for Time Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Discover Magazine, New Scientist Magazine, Astronomy Magazine, Wired Magazine, and been quoted in Scientific American, NY Times,Washington Post, London Daily Telegraph, London Times, Philadelphia Inquirer, Wired Magazine, and Fast Magazine. He has written cover articles for New Scientist magazine, Astronomy magazine, and the Sunday London Times.
Dr. Kaku frequently keynotes major business conferences about the next 20
years in computers, finance, banking, and commerce. In particular, he has
keynoted major conferences for major corporations, many of them
controlling hundreds of billions of dollars in investments.
“I want you to open your mind to the concept that one day we may make contact with a civilization from outer space which may be thousands, millions of years ahead of us in technology," asks Dr. Michio Kaku as he makes typically fascinating predictions about potential human interactions with extraterrestrials. He makes the astonishing but persuasively justified prediction that “by mid-century we might have made contact with an intelligent extraterrestrial civilization."
Dr. Michio Kaku gives a series of fascinating lectures that encompass physics, commerce and the world of the future. His most popular presentation, Physics of the Future, takes his extensive research among 300 top scientists and uses it as a basis for predicting the future of medicine, computers, energy, quantum physics and space travel.

The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind
The Future of the Mind gives us an authoritative and compelling look at the astonishing research being done in top laboratories around the world—all based on the latest advancements in neuroscience and physics. One day we might have a “smart pill” that can enhance our cognition; be able to upload our brain to a computer, neuron for neuron; send thoughts and emotions around the world on a “brain-net”; control computers and robots with our mind; push the very limits of immortality; and perhaps even send our consciousness across the universe.
Dr. Kaku takes us on a grand tour of what the future might hold, giving us not only a solid sense of how the brain functions but also how these technologies will change our daily lives. He even presents a radically new way to think about “consciousness” and applies it to provide fresh insight into mental illness, artificial intelligence and alien consciousness.
Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration into the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel
A fascinating exploration of the science of the impossible—from death rays and force fields to invisibility cloaks—revealing to what extent such technologies might be achievable decades or millennia into the future.
One hundred years ago, scientists would have said that lasers, televisions, and the atomic bomb were beyond the realm of physical possibility. In PHYSICS OF THE IMPOSSIBLE, the renowned physicist Michio Kaku explores to what extent the technologies and devices of science fiction that are deemed equally impossible today might well become commonplace in the future.
From teleportation to telekinesis, Kaku uses the world of science fiction to explore the fundamentals—and the limits—of the laws of physics as we know them today. He ranks the impossible technologies by categories—Class I, II, and III, depending on when they might be achieved, within the next century, millennia, or perhaps never.
Parallel Worlds: A Journey Through Creation, Higher Dimensions, and the Future of the Cosmos
In this thrilling journey into the mysteries of our cosmos, bestselling author Michio Kaku takes us on a dizzying ride to explore black holes and time machines, multidimensional space and, most tantalizing of all, the possibility that parallel universes may lay alongside our own. Kaku skillfully guides us through the latest innovations in string theory and its latest iteration, M-theory, which posits that our universe may be just one in an endless multiverse, a singular bubble floating in a sea of infinite bubble universes. If M-theory is proven correct, we may perhaps finally find answer to the question, “What happened before the big bang?” This is an exciting and unforgettable introduction into the new cutting-edge theories of physics and cosmology from one of the pre-eminent voices in the field.
