What will life be like for humanity in the year 2100? Will it be all jet packs and renegade androids? Tonight on Inquiry, we speak with writer and Professor of Theoretical Physics at City University, New York MICHIO KAKU. Based on interviews and visits with over 300 top scientists and being sure to stay within the known laws of physics, Professor Kaku makes a serious attempt to predict where technology will bring us in a century. His results are nothing short of mind blowing, yet still based on discoveries that are occurring now. Tune in and discover quantum computing; nanobot surgery, fusion reactors and the possibility of shape-shifting, programmable matter. “By 2100, our destiny is to become like the gods we once worshipped and feared”. Professor Kaku’s mind-blowing new book is PHYSICS OF THE FUTURE: HOW SCIENCE WILL SHAPE HUMAN DESTINY AND OUR DAILY LIVES BY THE YEAR 2100.
