The God Equation: The Quest for a Theory of Everything

The God Equation: The Quest for a Theory of Everything

Author: Michio Kaku Narrator: Feodor Chin Release Date: 01/04/2021

Brought to you by Penguin. This is the story of a quest: to find a Theory of Everything. Einstein dedicated his life to seeking this elusive Holy Grail, a single, revolutionary 'god equation' which would tie all the forces in the universe together, yet never found it. Some of the greatest minds in physics took up the search, from Stephen Hawking to Brian Greene. None have yet succeeded. In The God Equation, renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku takes the reader on a mind-bending ride through the twists and turns of this epic journey: a mystery that has fascinated him for most of his life. He guides us through the key debates in modern physics, from Newton's law of gravity via relativity and quantum mechanics to the latest developments in string theory. It is a tale of dazzling breakthroughs and crushing dead ends, illuminated by Kaku's clarity, storytelling flair and infectious enthusiasm. The object of the quest is now within sight: we are closer than ever to achieving the most ambitious undertaking in the history of science. If successful, the Theory of Everything could simultaneously unlock the deepest mysteries of space and time, and fulfil that most ancient and basic of human desires - to understand the meaning of our lives. © Michia Kaku 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

Física de lo imposible: ¿Podremos ser invisibles, viajar en el tiempo y teletransportarnos?

Author: Michio Kaku Narrator: Raúl Arrieta Release Date: 01/07/2019

¿Hasta qué punto los ingenios de la ciencia ficción que hoy consideramos imposibles pueden ser habituales en el futuro? Descúbrelo escuchando este audiolibro. Teletransporte, máquinas del tiempo, campos de fuerza y naves intergalácticas: ¿materia de ciencia ficción o tecnologías potencialmente disponibles en el futuro? Inspirado por los mundos fantásticos de H.G. Wells, Star Trek o La guerra de las galaxias, el prestigioso físico teórico y divulgador Michio Kaku lanza una mirada inteligente, seria y a menudo sorprendente a lo que nuestra actual comprensión de las leyes del universo nos permite vislumbrar en el futuro. Escucha este fascinante viaje por mundos hasta ahora solo soñados por la ciencia ficción, que ofrece nuevos retos a las próximas generaciones de científicos capaces de desafiar las imposibilidades de nuestro tiempo. Reseñas: «Física de lo imposible trata de explicar por qué algunas visiones del futuro podrían llegar a realizarse mientras que otras probablemente permanecerán más allá de los límites de lo posible [...] La ciencia ficción explora a menudo estas cuestiones; la ciencia en cambio permanece callada en este punto. El trabajo de Kaku ayuda a llenar un vacío.» The Economist «Aquello que muchos consideran un vuelo de la imaginación se está materializando gracias a recientes descubrimientos científicos, que van desde tímidos progresos en teletransporte hasta la creación de pequeñas cantidades de antimateria y transmisiones más rápidas que la velocidad de la luz. Kaku demuestra que en los maravillosos mundos de la ciencia las cosas imposibles suceden a diario.» Publishers Weekly «Pocos físicos teóricos se plantearían explorar algunas de estas posibles imposibilidades, y hay que felicitar a Kaku por hacerlo. Es un excelente estímulo intelectual.» Los Angeles Times

The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond

Author: Michio Kaku Narrator: Feodor Chin Release Date: 01/02/2018

The #1 bestselling author of The Future of the Mind traverses the frontiers of astrophysics, artificial intelligence, and technology to offer a stunning vision of man's future in space, from settling Mars to traveling to distant galaxies. Formerly the domain of fiction, moving human civilization to the stars is increasingly becoming a scientific possibility-and a necessity. Whether in the near future due to climate change and the depletion of finite resources, or in the distant future due to catastrophic cosmological events, we must face the reality that humans will one day need to leave planet Earth to survive as a species. World-renowned physicist and futurist Michio Kaku explores in rich, intimate detail the process by which humanity may gradually move away from the planet and develop a sustainable civilization in outer space. He reveals how cutting-edge developments in robotics, nanotechnology, and biotechnology may allow us to terraform and build habitable cities on Mars. He then takes us beyond the solar system to nearby stars, which may soon be reached by nanoships traveling on laser beams at near the speed of light. Finally, he brings us beyond our galaxy, and even beyond our universe, to the possibility of immortality, showing us how humans may someday be able to leave our bodies entirely and laser port to new havens in space. With irrepressible enthusiasm and wonder, Dr. Kaku takes readers on a fascinating journey to a future in which humanity may finally fulfill its long-awaited destiny among the stars.

Parallel Worlds

Parallel Worlds

Author: Michio Kaku Narrator: Marc Vietor Release Date: 01/07/2016

Is our universe dying? Could there be other universes? In Parallel Worlds, world-renowned physicist and bestselling author Michio Kaku an author who has a knack for bringing the most ethereal ideas down to earth (Wall Street Journal) takes readers on a fascinating tour of cosmology, M-theory, and its implications for the fate of the universe. In his first book of physics since Hyperspace, Michio Kaku begins by describing the extraordinary advances that have transformed cosmology over the last century, and particularly over the last decade, forcing scientists around the world to rethink our understanding of the birth of the universe, and its ultimate fate. In Dr. Kaku's eyes, we are living in a golden age of physics, as new discoveries from the WMAP and COBE satellites and the Hubble space telescope have given us unprecedented pictures of our universe in its infancy. As astronomers wade through the avalanche of data from the WMAP satellite, a new cosmological picture is emerging. So far, the leading theory about the birth of the universe is the inflationary universe theory, a major refinement on the big bang theory. In this theory, our universe may be but one in a multiverse, floating like a bubble in an infinite sea of bubble universes, with new universes being created all the time. A parallel universe may well hover a mere millimeter from our own. The very idea of parallel universes and the string theory that can explain their existence was once viewed with suspicion by scientists, seen as the province of mystics, charlatans, and cranks. But today, physicists overwhelmingly support string-theory, and its latest iteration, M-theory, as it is this one theory that, if proven correct, would reconcile the four forces of the universe simply and elegantly, and answer the question What happened before the big bang? Already, Kaku explains, the world's foremost physicists and astronomers are searching for ways to test the theory of the multiverse using highly sophisticated wave detectors, gravity lenses, satellites, and telescopes. The implications of M-theory are fascinating and endless. If parallel worlds do exist, Kaku speculates, in time, perhaps a trillion years or more from now, as appears likely, when our universe grows cold and dark in what scientists describe as a big freeze, advanced civilizations may well find a way to escape our universe in a kind of inter-dimensional lifeboat. An unforgettable journey into black holes and time machines, alternate universes, and multidimensional space, Parallel Worlds gives us a compelling portrait of the revolution sweeping the world of cosmology.

Physics of the Future

Physics of the Future

Author: Michio Kaku Narrator: Feodor Chin Release Date: 01/03/2011

Imagine, if you can, the world in the year 2100. In Physics of the Future, Michio Kaku the New York Times bestselling author of Physics of the Impossible gives us a stunning, provocative, and exhilarating vision of the coming century based on interviews with over three hundred of the world's top scientists who are already inventing the future in their labs. The result is the most authoritative and scientifically accurate description of the revolutionary developments taking place in medicine, computers, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, energy production, and astronautics. In all likelihood, by 2100 we will control computers via tiny brain sensors and, like magicians, move objects around with the power of our minds. Artificial intelligence will be dispersed throughout the environment, and Internet-enabled contact lenses will allow us to access the world's information base or conjure up any image we desire in the blink of an eye. Meanwhile, cars will drive themselves using GPS, and if room-temperature superconductors are discovered, vehicles will effortlessly fly on a cushion of air, coasting on powerful magnetic fields and ushering in the age of magnetism. Using molecular medicine, scientists will be able to grow almost every organ of the body and cure genetic diseases. Millions of tiny DNA sensors and nanoparticles patrolling our blood cells will silently scan our bodies for the first sign of illness, while rapid advances in genetic research will enable us to slow down or maybe even reverse the aging process, allowing human life spans to increase dramatically. In space, radically new ships needle-sized vessels using laser propulsion could replace the expensive chemical rockets of today and perhaps visit nearby stars. Advances in nanotechnology may lead to the fabled space elevator, which would propel humans hundreds of miles above the earth's atmosphere at the push of a button. But these astonishing revelations are only the tip of the iceberg. Kaku also discusses emotional robots, antimatter rockets, X-ray vision, and the ability to create new life-forms, and he considers the development of the world economy. He addresses the key questions: Who are the winner and losers of the future? Who will have jobs, and which nations will prosper? All the while, Kaku illuminates the rigorous scientific principles, examining the rate at which certain technologies are likely to mature, how far they can advance, and what their ultimate limitations and hazards are. Synthesizing a vast amount of information to construct an exciting look at the years leading up to 2100, Physics of the Future is a thrilling, wondrous ride through the next 100 years of breathtaking scientific revolution. From the Hardcover edition.

Physics of the Impossible

Author: Michio Kaku Narrator: Feodor Chin Release Date: 01/03/2008

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. In a compelling and thought-provoking narrative, he explains: How the science of optics and electromagnetism may one day enable us to bend light around an object, like a stream flowing around a boulder, making the object invisible to observers "downstream;" How ramjet rockets, laser sails, antimatter engines, and nanorockets may one day take us to the nearby stars; How telepathy and psychokinesis, once considered pseudoscience, may one day be possible using advances in MRI, computers, superconductivity, and nanotechnology; Why a time machine is apparently consistent with the known laws of quantum physics, although it would take an unbelievably advanced civilization to actually build one. Kaku uses his discussion of each technology as a jumping-off point to explain the science behind it. An extraordinary scientific adventure, PHYSICS OF THE IMPOSSIBLE takes listeners on an unforgettable, mesmerizing journey into the world of science that both enlightens and entertains.
