Michio Kaku to Speak at UNR Tonight

Posted: Updated:

Renowned physicist and TV show host Michio Kaku will speak at the University of Nevada tonight.

The College of Science invited Kaku to speak as part of their annual 'Discover Science Lecture Series.'

He is most famous for co-creating string field theory which helps explain the origin and evolution of the universe and hosts sci-fi science on the science channel.

Kaku has published over 70 articles and 11 books. His "Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration into the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel" book made the New York Times Best Seller List. He is host of the Science Channel's TV series, "Sci Fi Science," as well as a national science radio show that airs in 140 cities.

He will lecture about his latest New York Times best-seller "The Physics of the Future," about how science will revolutionize our world in the next 10, 50 and 100 years.

For more than 25 years, Kaku has taught at The City College of New York where he holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics. He received a bachelor of science (summa cum laude) from Harvard University in 1968. He went on to the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley and received a doctorate in 1972. In 1973, he held a lectureship at Princeton University.

Admission is free. Lectures are at 7 p.m. in the Redfield Auditorium, Davidson Mathematics and Science Center at the University of Nevada, Reno. Seating may be limited in the auditorium and will be on a first come-first serve basis for the Michio Kaku presentation. This lecture will also be live streamed to other nearby classrooms on campus.
