More Chances to be a Part of the Filming for Season 2 of Sci Fi Science
Michio Kaku is a futurist, popularizer of science, and theoretical physicist, as well as a bestselling author and the host of two radio programs. He is the co-founder of string field theory (a branch of string theory), and continues Einstein’s search to unite the four fundamental forces of nature into one unified theory. He holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics and a joint appointment at City College of New York and the Graduate Center of C.U.N.Y. He is also a visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and is a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
Kaku launched his Big Think blog, "Dr. Kaku's Universe," in March 2010.
I would like to thank all the people who showed up on Thursday in New York to be part of filming Sci Fi Science, second season.
We filmed two episodes of the program (about how to terraform Mars, and how to colonize the Milky Way galaxy) and the audience reaction was great. We had a wonderful reaction from the crowd when we unveiled the animation for how we plan to solve these two important problems.
Many of the audience showed up in their favorite Star Wars, Star Trek, or science fiction costumes, which made the filming a lot of fun and very colorful. We still have 10 more episodes to go.
If you want to see how you can win an invitation to take part in filming for the program, then go to http://science.discovery.com/science/sci-fi-science-contest.html and they will show you how you can be part of the audience. (You have to sign a permission form, since your image will be broadcast world wide, with many different subtitles in different languages, over the Discovery/Science Channel.)
Next, we will be filming at the science fiction convention in Boston around April 10th - 12th.
Fight or flight? We've all been there. Now we have an understanding of how it works.
The Spilhaus Projection may be more than 75 years old, but it has never been more relevant than today.
- Athelstan Spilhaus designed an oceanic thermometer to fight the Nazis, and the weather balloon that got mistaken for a UFO in Roswell.
- In 1942, he produced a world map with a unique perspective, presenting the world's oceans as one body of water.
- The Spilhaus Projection could be just what the oceans need to get the attention their problems deserve.
It's just the current cycle that involves opiates, but methamphetamine, cocaine, and others have caused the trajectory of overdoses to head the same direction
- It appears that overdoses are increasing exponentially, no matter the drug itself
- If the study bears out, it means that even reducing opiates will not slow the trajectory.
- The causes of these trends remain obscure, but near the end of the write-up about the study, a hint might be apparent
