EXODUS: Gods and Kings, the star-studded biblically-inspired epic film from director, Ridley Scott, opens in theaters today and it’s already making waves.
Speaking of waves, CBS invited Dr. Michio Kaku to offer his assessment, as a theoretical physicist, on the feasibility of parting the waters of the Red Sea, as Moses did in the famous bible story on which the motion picture is based. Can it be done relying only on science, without the aid of divine intervention? CBSN poses the question, "Could Moses really part the Red Sea?" WATCH NOW!
After you’ve parted the waters of EXODUS, travel through a cosmic wormhole in Dr. Kaku’s review (also on CBSN) of the hit sci-fi thriller, INTERSTELLAR.

Dr. Michio Kaku is a proud participant in the upcoming 3RD ANNUAL USA SCIENCE & ENGINEERING FESTIVAL taking place on April 26th and 27th, 2014 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.
The FREE festival is analogous to an art, music, or food festival, but with a focus on science and engineering. There will be over 3,000 hands-on activities and over 150 stage shows. The event is also a resource for information about scholarships, internships, jobs, and taking part in science’s new frontiers.
"As a culture, we celebrate actors, pop stars and athletes… and we generate a lot of them. Our mission here is to celebrate science and engineering by producing and presenting the most compelling, exciting, educational, and entertaining science festival in the United States," said Larry Bock, USASEF Founder.
Dr. Kaku will speak to a live audience on the EINSTEIN STAGE at 4 PM on Saturday, April 26th, 2014. Following the speaking event, at 5 PM, Dr. Kaku will meet and greet fans at an official booksigning at TABLE #4 of the festival’s on-site book fair.

The recent discovery of methane on Mars is more than a curiousity. It could be a game changer. For the last three decades, NASA’s Mars exploration program has been based on a single mantra: Follow the water. Where there is water, there might be life. So far, this strategy has come up empty handed. But now, NASA might have to change course and follow the methane.
In a battle waged with popcorn, floodlights, chalk and star power, science and art squared off at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology one night last month in regards to the upcoming film Jumper.
The elliptical galaxy NGC 1132, seen in this latest image from Hubble, belongs to a category of galaxies called giant ellipticals. The small galaxies surrounding it are dubbed a fossil group.
