  • Description
    From cyborgs, starships, UFOs, aliens and antimatter to telepathy, invisibility, psychokinesis and precognition, Michio Kaku's Physics of the Impossible is an exciting look at how science fiction could soon become science fact. Albert Einstein said, 'If at first an idea does not sound absurd, there is no hope for it.' Physics of the Impossible shows how our most far-fetched ideas today - from Star Trek's phasers and teleportation to time travel as envisioned by Back to the Future - are destined to become tomorrow's reality. Michio Kaku, bestselling science author and one of the world's most acclaimed physicists, looks at the technologies of the future and explains what's just around the corner, what we might have to wait a few millennia to get our hands on and how surprisingly little of it is truly impossible. 'A brilliant, provocative, freewheeling tour around the exotic shores of physics' Independent 'A rich compendium of jaw-dropping reality checks' The Times 'One of the world's most distinguished physicists ... takes the reader on a journey to the frontiers of science and beyond' Guardian 'After reading Kaku's boundless enthusiasm for the future, what you wouldn't give for a real-life time machine to travel forwards and see just how accurate his predictions are' Sunday Telegraph Michio Kaku is a leading theoretical physicist and one of the founders of string theory, widely regarded as the strongest candidate for the 'theory of everything'. He is also one of the most gifted popularizers of science of his generation. His books published by Penguin include Parallel Worlds, The Physics of the Future and The Physics of the Impossible. He holds the Henry Semat Professorship in Theoretical Physics at the City University of New York, where he has taught for over twenty-five years.

    Futuristic and Informative

    Michio Kaku has done a great work. He has explored almost all the ideas which maybe invented in the next century. His speech on the same topic can be found in YouTube. Both are a must for any person interested in Physics.
    The book maybe a hard read for any person not so well versed in Physics. If you are intersted in Physics and Technology, this is the right book.
    Any Physicist who would like to research on any topic for the future, this book will give ideas for your research.

    Must have for every Science Lovers ...

    I'd personally suggest this to every Science lover and students. Prof Kaku is a recognized face with modern Science and its facets. He talks about various scenario-come-true-topics and elaborates other sci-fi stuffs which are waiting to be exploited.
