Physics’ greatest mystery: Michio Kaku explains the God Equation
Dr. Michio Kaku is the co-founder of string field theory, and is one of the most widely recognized scientists in the world today. He has written 4 New York Times Best Sellers, is the science correspondent for CBS This Morning and has hosted numerous science specials for BBC-TV, the Discovery/Science Channel. His radio show broadcasts to 100 radio stations every week. Dr. Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics at the City College of New York (CUNY), where he has taught for over 25 years. He has also been a visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Study as well as New York University (NYU).
« It’s no exaggeration to say that the greatest minds of the entire human race have made proposals for this grand final theory of everything, » says theoretical physicist Michio Kaku.
This theory, also known as the God Equation, would unify all the basic concepts of physics into one. According to Kaku, the best, most « mathematically consistent » candidate so far is string theory, but there are objections.
« The biggest objection is you can’t test it, » Kaku explains, « but we’re getting closer and closer. »
