On the historic success of NASA‘s space mission to the Pluto System, the New Horizons space probe has started sending back the first-ever high resolution close-up images of the dwarf planet’s surface. The data is traveling across a staggering three billion miles of space — the same distance traveled by the probe on its trek to Pluto and beyond. Meanwhile, here on Earth, scientists are studying the data as it continues to stream in. Dr. Michio Kaku joins Ed Schultz of MSNBC’s ‘The Ed Show’ to discuss the scientific and historic significance of New Horizons revelations about Pluto. WATCH NOW!
What’s the difference between an earthquake and an aftershock? For the people of Nepal, grappling with a 7.3-magintude aftershock of the quake that rocked the region just weeks ago, it hardly matters… or does it?
Dr. Michio Kaku returns to MSNBC appearing on ‘NOW with Alex Wagner‘ to discuss the science of earthquakes, aftershocks, and the relative predictability of major seismic events like the Nepal disaster. 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!
The FAA’s Office of the Associate Administrator for Commercial Space Transportation, known as the AST, has approved private sector operations on the Moon. All signs indicate that we are in the midst of a new kind of space race — wherein the private sector seeks to play a starring role.
Dr. Michio Kaku rejoins Ed Schultz, on MSNBC’s ‘The Ed Show’ to discuss the key players, like Bigelow Aerospace and SpaceX, and the bold initiatives underway that will shape the future of the final frontier. WATCH NOW!
Scientists have identified eight distinct planetary objects beyond our own solar system, each exhibiting earth-like qualities considered essential to supporting and sustaining intelligent life. Dr. Michio Kaku recently joined Ed Schultz, host of MSNBC’s ‘The Ed Show’ to explore the exciting possibilities of life out in the stars beyond Earth. WATCH NOW! and stay tuned for more…
Nuke the oil well? Dr. Kaku talks with Keith Olbermann (MSNBC) about the recent proposal of using a small nuclear device to melt the oil well shut in the Gulf of Mexico and what could go wrong as a result.
Dr. Kaku sits down with Keith Olbermann (The Countdown – MSNBC) to speak about how BP’s top-kill procedure is faring at stopping the oil in the Gulf and what other options are available to avoid a worst case scenerio disaster. Interview took place on May 27th, 2010.
MSNBC interviewed Dr. Kaku about the LHC and published an interactive video feature on their website
