Physics of the Future
Author and physicist Michio Kaku spoke at the Museum of Science. He’s going to give you a guided tour of what the scientist believe the next twenty, fifty, a hundred years are going to look like. He had the honor of interviewing over three hundred of the world’s top scientists. Two scientists a week. He had a chance to share their dreams about the future.
We invented the transistor, we invented the laser, we helped to invent the first computer, we helped to create the Internet, we wrote the World Wide Web, we also invented television, we invented radio, we invented microwaves, we invented radar, we invented MRI scans, you name it. There was a physicist there, and now we’re inventing the 21st century.
Of course it is difficult to predict the future, but let me quote that great philosopher of the western world, Yogi Berra: “Growth prediction is awfully hard to do, especially if it’s about the future.”
Physicist love to make predictions, in fact they predict trillions of years from now. They can actually predict what the universe may look like trillions of years from now.
