Just got back from a great evening with Dr. Michio Kaku. Professor Kaku was interviewed about all things physics but especially string theory. The interviewer was Derek Muller the Sydney based science presenter and creator of the youtube video channel Veritasium, which we post here regularly. Prof. Kaku is a working theoretical physicist, best selling author, acclaimed public speaker, renowned futurist, and populariser of science. But he is probably most acclaimed as the co-founder of String Field Theory.
String theory stems from Albert Einstein’s legacy; it combines the theory of general relativity and quantum mechanics by assuming the multiverse of universes. String field theory then uses the mathematics of fields to put it all into perspectives. Dr Kaku’s goal is to unite the four fundamental forces of nature into one ‘unified field theory’, a theory that seeks to summarise all fundamental laws of the universe in one simple equation. – A great night – Jim – Editor of Deskarati
