The Universe in a Nutshell
What if, we could find one single equation that explains every force in the universe? Dr. Michio Kaku explores how physicists may shrink the science of the Big Bang into an equation as small as Einstein’s “e=mc^2.” Thanks to advances in string theory, physics may allow us to escape the heat death of the universe, explore the multiverse, and unlock the secrets of existence. While firing up our imaginations about the future, Kaku also presents a succinct history of physics and makes a compelling case for why physics is the key to pretty much everything.
Sci-fi writer Arthur C. Clarke once said, “The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them to the impossible.” Dr. Michio Kaku would like to clarify what kind of impossibility we’re talking about.
In this excerpt from the latest lecture at Great Big Ideas, the new online course offered by The Floating University, Dr. Kaku explains that while some inventions will remain forever confined to the pages of science fiction novels, many of the innovations we’ve dreamed up in books – warp drive, star gates, portals through space and time – will one day make the leap in to living rooms everywhere, like the television set did in 1948.
