Dr. Michio Kaku Entertains Sold-Out Performing Arts Center With Predictions of Future Breakthroughs in Science and Technology

September 14, 2012

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Renowned theoretical physicist Dr. Micho Kaku painted a mesmerizing picture of how science is shaping our future before a sold-out Performing Arts Center audience on Thursday, Sept. 13, at Texas A&M-University-Corpus Christi.

Kaku, one of the most widely-recognized scientists in the world today and co-founder of the String Theory, spoke before a crowd of more than 1,350 attending Texas A&M-Corpus Christi’s Distinguished Speaker Series. His provocative, exhilarating, and even stunning vision include a future where we control computers via tiny brain sensors and, like magicians, move objects around with the power of our minds. Meanwhile, cars will drive themselves using GPS and, using molecular medicine, scientists will be able to grow almost every organ of the body and cure genetic diseases.

Kaku’s predictions are based on interviews with more than 300 of the world’s leading scientists and detailed in his two New York Times best sellers, “Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100,”  and “Physics of the Impossible: Beyond Einstein and Hyperspace.” Kaku also hosts the largest nationally-syndicated show on commercial radio, which is broadcast weekly over 140 radio stations and the Sirius XM satellite.

Earlier in the day, Kaku addressed more than 1,100 students from the University and area schools at the Student Forum which precedes each Distinguished Speaker Series event. The Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Distinguished Speaker Series brings accomplished national and international speakers to campus to provide insight, provoke thought, and stimulate conversation about the country’s most compelling issues.
