Internationally Recognized Authority in Both Theoretical Physics and the Environment
Dr. Michio Kaku is an internationally recognized authority in two areas. The first is Einstein's unified field theory, which Dr. Kaku is attempting to complete.

His goal is the complete Einstein's dream of a "theory of everything," to derive an equation, perhaps no more than one inch long, which will summarize all the physical laws of the universe. He is the co-founder of string theory, a major branch of string theory, which is the leading candidate today for the theory of everything.
He is the author of several international best-sellers, Hyperspace and Visions: How Science Will Revolutionize the 21st Century. For Visions, he interviewed 150 of the world's top scientists, many of them Nobel Laureates and directors of the largest scientific laboratories, about their vision for the next 20 years in computers, robotics, biotechnology, space travel, etc. These are the scientists who are inventing the future in their laboratories. Visions is the most authoritative and most authentic understanding of the world of the future.
