Win a Chance to Meet Me and Take Part in Filming for "SCI-FI Science: Physics of the Impossible" in New York City on July 16th
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'm nearly done filming a second season of "SCI-FI Science: Physics of the Impossible" on The Science Channel. In this exciting new series, I've identified 12 more familiar science-fiction movie, TV and literature notions and technologies. I've been explaining how we can build some of these SCI-FI ideas into science fact and—once again—I want to know what you think of my designs.
The next two episodes will be:
"How to Stop the Rise of the Machines" and "How to Defeat a Cyborg Army"
I'm inviting lucky winners of our competitions to the studio shoots where I will reveal my designs.
For a chance to be invited to the next reveal shoot in New York City, send an email to email@example.com with your answers to the questions below.
In less than 250 words tell us:
- Should we be afraid of the Technological Singularity?
- What could we do to stop computers taking over?
- Is there any way to defeat a cyborg army?
- If you were to create your own cyborg army, what capabilities would it have?
I will choose a handful of lucky sci-fi fans to take part in the filming. Please include your name, age and contact details. You must be able to travel to New York for the filming on Friday, July 16th!
Please do not enter if you are unable to make this date.
Winners will be contacted on July 10th via e-mail or telephone—so be sure to check both often!
Make sure to get your entries e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org as quickly as possible!
We're more dependent on them than we realize.

- 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.
