Dr Michio Kaku, co-founder of String Theory, famed futurist, and award-winning documentary presenter on BBC, Discovery, History, and Science Channels, will be joining networking forum This Is 42 to tour Brisbane in November.

The Future of Humanity draws on Kaku’s latest book to tackle the unique terrestrial and extra-terrestrial concerns of the 21st Century. Kaku will take audiences on an exhilarating journey through the latest developments in String Theory, astronomy, futurism, and interplanetary colonisation. Attendants will not only get to engage in in-depth discussion, but they also have the fantastic opportunity to ask Kaku any burning questions in person.

Dr Michio Kaku is one of the most widely recognised figures in science today. He is internationally renowned for two masterworks: his String Theory, an answer to Einstein’s incomplete unified field theory, and his use of science to predict the future of business, medicine, finance, and human culture. His latest New York Times bestseller The Future of Humanity explores our destiny as we reach for the planets and the stars. He is one of the most widely recognised figures in science in the world.

Dr Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair in Theoretical Physics at the City University of New York (CUNY). He graduated from Harvard University in 1968, summa cum laude and first in his physics class. He received his PhD in physics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1972, and been a professor at CUNY for almost 30 years. He has taught at Harvard and Princeton as well. His goal is to complete Einstein’s dream of a “theory of everything,” to derive an equation, perhaps no more than one inch long, which will summarise all the physical laws of the universe.
