SCI-FI Science Fans: Thanks!
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 everyone who has been so enthusiastic about being part of SCI-FI Science: Physics of the Impossible on the Science Channel. We have been floored by the warm reception after we announced that fans
can be part of the program.
We usually interview the fans at the beginning of the show, when they volunteer some questions, and at the very end, when we reveal the solution to the problem based on the best scientific evidence. So far, we have filmed enthusiastic fans in 4 episodes, including "How to Create a New Earth in Space," "How to Colonize the Galaxy," "How to Defend Against Meteors and Comets," and "How to Engineer a New Solar System in Space."
Next I fly to San Francisco to meet the SETI people, and also to swim with some dolphins! So there is still time if you want to be on SCI-FI Science: Physics of the Impossible, the #1 new program featured on the Science Channel.
We still have 8 more episodes to go, so we still have room for more fans who would like to be on international TV. For more information on how you can enter the contest for a chance to be a part of the filming, please visit my Facebook fan page for details.
We're more dependent on them than we realize.
- Scientists says our survival depends on biodiversity.
- A natural climate strategy we often forget.
- Seeing our place among the Earth's living creatures.
There's a high social cost that comes with lighting up.
While short-term results are positive, there is mounting evidence against staying in ketosis for too long.
- Recent studies showed volunteers lost equal or more weight on high-carb, calorie-restricted diets than low-carb, calorie restricted diets.
- There might be positive benefits to short-term usage of a ketogenic diet.
- One dietician warns that the ketogenic diet could put diabetics at risk for diabetic ketoacidosis.
