KAKU ON SEARCH FOR EARTHLIKE PLANETS

Click for more CBS This Morning Just days from launch, NASA‘s TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite) will embark on a two-year all-sky transit survey of our solar neighborhood and monitor over 200,000 bright stars in search of exoplanets. The endeavor is expected to reveal and identify thousands of previously unknown worlds, some of which may be Earth-like and therefore capable of supporting intelligent life. The ramifications of what we may find are simply staggering and stand to challenge our entire understanding of our place in the universe. CBS News science and futurist contributor, Dr. Michio Kaku joins ‘CBS This Morning: Saturday’ to discuss the TESS mission and other recent findings that seem to suggest we’re not alone. WATCH NOW!

Game of Thrones fans know it well… Winter was coming and now "Winter is here!" So says the King of the North, or, in this case, Earth’s northern hemisphere. The Winter Solstice is here and that means winter. As Americans bundle up for the coldest part of the season, CBS NEWS science and futurist contributor, Dr. Michio Kaku, joins CBSN on the shortest day of the year to discuss the Earth’s rotation and what it means for humans around the globe.

KAKU ON WHY THE UNIVERSE EXISTS

Click for more CBSN posts

Our universe, with equal parts matter and antimatter, is fundamentally symmetrical. Beautiful as that notion seems, it gives rise to a startling paradox with truly existential ramifications. If matter and antimatter are in symmetry (as all observations seem to confirm), then theoretically our universe as we know it should not exist. Researchers at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, recently set out to determine why the universe exists despite this symmetry that should’ve resulted in instantaneous annihilation. Unfortunately, the study didn’t turn up any differences. That leaves researchers back where they started. Scientists still believe there must be some undiscovered difference between matter and antimatter that allows our universe to exist. Otherwise, what makes the miracle of our existence possible? CBS NEWS science and futurist contributor, Dr. Michio Kaku, joins CBSN to help us face reality. WATCH NOW!

KAKU ON NEUTRON STAR GOLD

Click to Show Only FOX Business Astronomers struck gold this week, in more ways than one. For the first time, LIGO scientists have caught two neutron stars in the act of colliding — revealing that these cosmic smashups are the source of heavy elements like gold and platinum. The discovery was made by the same pioneering team that won this year’s Nobel Prize for its discovery of gravitational waves, once theorized and predicted by Albert Einstein. Famed futurist and theoretical physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku, joins Kennedy on FOX Business with more insights. WATCH NOW!

KAKU ON NEWEST GRAVITY WAVES

Click for more CBSN posts

Early last year, scientists made a breakthrough discovery of gravitational waves in the wild, signaling the dawn of a new subfield of astronomy. This week, separate observatories in Washington, Louisiana, and Italy independently detected and collectively confirmed more gravitational waves in the wild — this time from the collision of two black holes about 2 billion light-years from Earth. Gravity waves pick up cosmic events that are invisible or nearly impossible to measure by any other means. By combining observations of a single event using multiple means, it’s now possible to gain a more complete understanding of the source’s properties than ever before. This method is called multi-messenger astronomy. CBS NEWS science and futurist contributor, Dr. Michio Kaku, joins CBSN to break down what this discovery means for the future of astronomy.

More than 200 people lost their lives in Mexico City on Tuesday to a magnitude 7.1 earthquake centered in Mexico‘s state of Puebla. It remains to be seen if this seismic activity is related to the magnitude 8.1 quake that struck a nearby region just two weeks prior but most experts agree that a significant aftershock is all but imminent. CBS NEWS science and futurist contributor, Dr. Michio Kaku, spoke to CBSN on how earthquakes work and why this one was so devastating. WATCH NOW!

KAKU ON HISTORIC SOLAR ECLIPSE

Click to Show Only FOX Business On August 21, 2017, millions of people across the United States will witness a wondrous and historic spectacle — a total eclipse of the Sun. The Moon will completely block the Sun, daytime will become a deep twilight, and the Sun’s corona will shimmer in the dark sky. What makes this cosmic event rarer and more momentous is the eclipse’s "path of totality" which will darken skies along a straight line, spanning the nation from coast to coast. The so-called Great American Total Solar Eclipse will stretch about 70 miles wide from Oregon to South Carolina. Famed futurist and theoretical physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku, joins Kennedy on FOX Business with everything you need to know about the big event. WATCH NOW!
