Dr. Michio Kaku is the host of Science Fantastic. He also is one of the world's leading experts in theoretical physics, and according to New York Magazine, one of the "100 Smartest People in New York." Listeners from all walks of life tune in to hear Dr. Kaku discuss today's hottest and most relevant scientific/cultural topics covering everything from black holes and parallel universes to hip, provocative discussions on philosophy and the latest technology.
At any given moment he will quote not only Einstein, but Woody Allen, proving that Science Fantastic is not just for the science junky, but for anyone who has ever pondered the cosmic question of existence, as well as those interested in the latest technological trends and techno-gadgets. "People are curious about science despite unhappy experiences in school," says Dr. Kaku. "We grind it out of them with dull rote-learning_ We're all born scientists until we hit junior high school."
Dr. Kaku is the co-founder of string field theory, one of the main branches of string theory, the leading candidate for the unified field theory. Many in the scientific field call this "The new Copernican revolution." His goal is to 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." Dr. Kaku explains, "The theory of everything is necessarily a theory of Creation, that is, it must explain everything from the origin of the big bang down to the lilies of the field."
