Australasian Science: Australia's authority on science since 1938

Co-creator of string field theory coming Down Under

The co-creator of string field theory, Dr Michio Kaku, will be appearing in Australia for a series of public lectures in June.

String theory combines the theory of general relativity and quantum mechanics by assuming a multiverse of universes. String field theory then uses the mathematics of fields to put it all into perspective.

Dr Kaku’s goal is to unite the four fundamental forces of nature into one 'unified field theory' that summarises all fundamental laws of the universe in one simple equation.

A humanitarian and a firm believer in continued process of technological progression and application, Dr Kaku is passionate in bringing science to the public. His contribution extends beyond the world of theoretical physics. He has just released his most recent book, The Future of the Mind, which takes complicated scientific theories and turns them into readable tales about what our lives will be like in the future.

Dr Kaku to Australia this June in order to promote rational thought and smart discussions through a platform that is both educational and entertaining. In his first Australian public discussion this June, Dr. Michio Kaku will explore the possibilities of the future in a 60 minute "fireside chat" followed by a 30 minute Q&A.

What audiences will come away with is an enlightened, fresh new perspective on the physical world as we know it, grounded fully in what is currently the leading revolutionary field of science from one of the most brilliant big thinkers of our time.
