Chapman University’s Office of the Provost and Musco Center for the Arts present one of the most widely recognized futurists, Dr. Michio Kaku, who will speak on his latest book, The Future of Humanity, on March 1 at 7:30 pm. Dr. Kaku takes his audience on a fascinating journey to a future in which humanity may finally fulfill its long-awaited destiny among the stars.
Dr. Michio Kaku, #1 New York Times Bestseller, considers the stabilization of civilization in outer space in The Future of Humanity. Considering solar travel a possibility, Kaku discusses new technologies such as nanoships, laser sails, fusion rockets, the colonization of mars, and beyond. Kaku poses probing questions as he continually seeks to explore the great depths of space and humanities place in it.
“Dr. Michio Kaku is an extraordinary thought-leader for this generation,” said Richard T. Bryant, executive director of Musco Center. “He continues to push the boundaries of what is perceived and what is possible as he challenges us all to reach beyond our own understanding.”
A graduate of Harvard University with highest honors, Dr. Kaku received his doctorate at the University of California, Berkeley, where his area of expertise grew in quantum physics, supersymmetry, supergravity, hadronic physics, and superstring theory. Now a co-founder of string field theory, Dr. Kaku carries on Einstein’s quest to unite the four fundamental forces of nature into a single grand unified theory of everything. According to current scientific schools of thought, the four fundamental forces are gravitation, electromagnetism, the weak interaction, and the strong interaction.
Hailed for his expertise, Dr. Kaku has frequently contributed to broadcast television’s CBS News, The Today Show, Good Morning America, and NOVA: Secret Life of Scientists on PBS, among others. As a radio host, Dr. Kaku voices the Science Fantastic, the largest nationally syndicated science radio program.
