The Physics of Everything: Michio Kaku Puts The Universe in a Nutshell

This is by far the best Michio Kaku presentation that I have seen so far.

Only 42 minutes long, it is pretty concise given that it covers the gist of the importance and history of physics, as well as that of the universe as a whole and our understanding of it.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Michio Kaku, Henry Semat Professor of Theoretical Physics at CUNY, puts The Universe in a Nutshell: The Physics of Everything 

Synopsis: What if we could find one single equation that explains every force in the universe?

Dr. Michio Kaku explores how physicists may shrink the science of the Big Bang into an equation as small as Einstein’s “e=mc^2.” Thanks to advances in string theory, physics may allow us to escape the heat death of the universe, explore the multiverse, and unlock the secrets of existence. While firing up our imaginations about the future, Kaku also presents a succinct history of physics and makes a compelling case for why physics is the key to pretty much everything.

  • Why do objects fall to Earth?

    What a monumental question, considering everyone else through history wasn’t even (publicly) considering this question. “Falling” didn’t even occur to them as a possible curiosity. How easy to take things for granted and not question. Makes me wonder how many other realities we take for granted.
