Join Dr. Michio Kaku and hosts at CBSN, the "Always On" online news network from CBS NEWS, for a lively discussion of Proxima b — a newly discovered Earth-like planet also dubbed as Earth 2.0. What promise does Earth 2.0 hold for life back here on Earth 1.0? Dr. Kaku calls it "A New Chapter in Astronomy." WATCH NOW!
Does planet Earth have a twin out there somewhere? This week, Dr. Michio Kaku visited with Kennedy on FOX Business to talk about exoplanets and new discoveries advancing the startling prospect (and growing probability) that intelligent life all but certainly exists beyond Earth. In the vastness of the cosmos, Dr. Kaku asserts, it is increasingly clear that "we are NOT alone." WATCH NOW!
This week, renowned cosmologist, Stephen Hawking, announced Breakthrough Starshot — a hundred-million dollar research and engineering effort funded by Russian scientist and billionaire entrepreneur, Yuri Milner, and Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg. The aim, according to Milner, is to develop "high speed light-driven nano crafts and to lay the foundations for an eventual voyage to Alpha Centauri.”
Dr. Michio Kaku visited with Kennedy on FOX Business for a fun awe-inspiring discussion of Starshot‘s daring plans to make swarms of tiny spacefaring starships that will explore the cosmos at speeds approaching a thousand times faster than today’s fastest spacecraft. WATCH NOW!
At the recent BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Awards in London, England, cosmologist Stephen Hawking said, “The human failing I would most like to correct is ‘aggression.’ It may have had survival advantage in caveman days, to get more food, territory or partner with whom to reproduce, but now it threatens to destroy us all.” He warns that major nuclear war could be the end of civilization, possibly humankind.
As both a physicist and an optimist, Dr. Michio Kaku sees the very same scenario as motivation for ingenuity and opportunity. Specifically, using science, technology, and strides in space exploration to strengthen humanity’s presence (and its chances) to survive and even prosper beyond our earthly limits, out in space — to become, as he puts it, a “2 Planet Species.”
Dr. Kaku returns again on MSNBC’s ‘The Ed Show’ to discuss Hawking‘s remarks as he presents his own insights along with solutions that could be like an “insurance policy” for the human race. WATCH NOW!
