No. 1 best-selling author Dr. Michio Kaku is set to release his latest book, “The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality and Our Destiny Beyond Earth,” on Feb. 20.
In his latest offering, Kaku traverses the frontiers of astrophysics, artificial intelligence and technology to offer a vision of man’s future in space, from settling Mars to traveling to distant galaxies.
These topics are explored in rich detail to deliver a compelling vision of how humanity may develop a sustainable civilization in outer space. He also reveals the developments in robotics, nanotechnology and biotechnology that may allow humans to terraform and build habitable cities on Mars and beyond, as scientists have already discovered numerous planets orbiting stars. Even the possibility of the discovery of a twin of Earth is examined.
In all, “The Future of Humanity” investigates some of the hottest topics in science today — from warp drive, wormholes and hyperspace to parallel universes and the multiverse — to show how humans may one day achieve immortality and port to new havens in space.
Kaku is an American theoretical physicist, futurist and professor of theoretical physics at the City College of New York and CUNY Graduate Center. He has written several best-selling books including 2008’s “Physics of the Impossible,” 2011’s “Physics of the Future” and 2014’s “The Future of the Mind”; nearly 1.5 million copies of his books have been sold. In addition, he is the science correspondent for “CBS This Morning” and he has also hosted several TV specials for the BBC, the Discovery Channel, the History Channel and the Science Channel.
A feature on Kaku will appear in an upcoming issue of the Pacific Citizen.
