About Dr. Michio Kaku
Dr. Michio Kaku is an internationally recognized authority in theoretical physics and also the environment. He holds the Henry Semat Professorship in Theoretical Physics at the City College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. His goal is to help complete Einstein’s dream of a “theory of everything,” a single equation, perhaps no more than one inch long, which will unify all the fundamental forces in the universe. He has lectured around the world and his Ph.D. level textbooks are required reading at many of the top physics laboratories. He has written 9 books; his last two books, Hyperspace and Visions, became international bestsellers, and have been widely translated into different languages. He hosts a weekly hour long radio program on science on several stations around the country, and his commentaries on science can be heard on 60 radio stations nationwide.
