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. He has written three NY Times Best Sellers. His latest, The Future of the Mind, hit #1 on the NY Times, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble Best Sellers List, making it the #1 hardcover, non-fiction book in the country.His Facebook site has 1.8 million fans, and over 240,000 people regularly receive his tweets.

Dr. Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair in Theoretical Physics at the City University 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 University of California 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 best-sellers. 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 Wil 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 book, Parallel Worlds, about the latest in cosmology, which was a finalist for the prestigious Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction in the UK, and also a finalist for the Aventist science book award.  His other NY Times best seller, 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 1 science book in the United States.

His latest book is The Future of the Mind, which details the stunning breakthroughs being made in neuroscience, which are finally beginning to unravel the mysteries of the most complex object in the known universe, the human brain. 

Dr. Kaku 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 ha also appeared on the David Letterman Show, the Colbert Report, the Conan O’Brian show, HBO’s Bill Maher Show, and has appeared on numerous science specials, including PBS’s Steven Hawking’s Universe, Science Odyssey, and Einstein Revealed, the BBC’s Future Fantastic, Parallel Universes, Copenhagen, Channel 4’s The Big G: the story ofgravity, the Discovery Channel, the Learning Channel’s Exodus Earth, A & E, the History Channel’s Universe series and biography of Einstein, and many science documentaries.

He was featured in the full-length, 90 minute feature film, Me and Isaac Newton, which was nominated for an Emmy in 2001. He was profiled in Tech-TV’s Big Thinkers series and is a regular commentator on that cable network. He has spoken on over 500 radio stations around the country.

He has also appeared in a number of major science specials. In 2006, he hosted a four part, four part series for BBC-TV and BBC World on the nature of time, called Time.  In winter of 2007, he hosted a 3 part, 3 hour Discovery–TV series about the next 50 years, called 2057. He has also hosted a new 3 part, 3 hour documentary, for BBC-TV about the future of science, called Visions of the Future.

The Universe in a Nutshell: The Physics of Everything

The Earth will have a close encounter Wednesday with a massive asteroid nicknamed "The Rock." NASA first learned about it three years ago, and it is the largest to pass by Earth since 2004. CBS News science and futurist contributor Michio Kaku joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss how the asteroid will not affect Earth, although it does show the dangers of nearby objects.

Michio Kaku says that God could be a mathematician: "The mind of God we believe is cosmic music, the music of strings resonating through 11 dimensional hyperspace. That is the mind of God."
