In iPhysics of the Impossiblei, the renowned physicist Michio Kaku explores to what extent the technologies and devices of science fiction (such as phasers, force fields, teleportation, and time travel) that are deemed equally impossible today might well become commonplace in the future.pFrom teleportation to telekinesis, Kaku uses the world of science fiction to explore the fundamentals - and the limits - of the laws of physics as we know them today. In a compelling and thought-provoking narrative, he explains:pliHow the science of optics and electromagnetism may one day enable us to bend light around an object, like a stream flowing around a boulder, making the object invisible to observers downstreambrliHow ramjet rockets, laser sails, antimatter engines, and nanorockets may one day take us to the nearby starsbrliHow telepathy and psychokinesis, once considered pseudoscience, may one day be possible using advances in MRI, computers, superconductivity, and nanotechnologybrliWhy a time machine is apparently consistent with the known laws of quantum physics, although it would take an unbelievably advanced civilization to actually build onepKaku uses his discussion of each technology as a jumping-off point to explain the science behind it. An extraordinary scientific adventure, iPhysics of the Impossiblei takes listeners on an unforgettable, mesmerizing journey into the world of science that both enlightens and entertains.
