KAKU ON WHAT IF: TYPE II CIVILIZATIONS

Click for What IF's Official Facebook Page

Will We Become A Type II Civilization?

How cool would it be if we could one day regulate our atmosphere, control the climate and maybe even blast threatening asteroids into stardust? Well, to do those things would require A LOT of energy.

Essentially, we’d have to be able to harness all the power from the Sun. According to the Kardashev scale that ranks planets according to their ability to harness the energy from their star and even their galaxy, that would make Earth a Type II civilization. What does that mean and how far away are we from achieving that level of uber energy capacity? You’ll have to tune in to find out as What If: Discussed welcomes back Dr. Michio Kaku, physicist and science communicator extraordinaire, to help us better understand “What If we became a type II civilization?”

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!

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!
