Was Einstein Wrong?

The Theory of Relativity is one of the foundations of modern physics, along with Quantum Theory. So it came as a monumental shock to scientists when the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland, conducted an atom-smashing experiment that concluded that Einstein’s Theory of Relativity might be wrong. “All hell broke loose in the physics community,” says Michio Kaku, professor of theoretical physics at City College of New York. Kaku explains in this educational edition of Big Think.

We Are Not Alone

The age-old question, “Are we alone?” may now not only pertain to alien beings but multiple universes. Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku says data from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) points to a whole new set of scientific facts not previously contained in our textbooks and the possibility that we are not the lone universe in the cosmos. Kaku helps us digest what truth is lurking out there in this edition of Bore Me Science

Universe in a Nutshell

Michio Kaku, the Henry Semat Professor of Theoretical Physics at City University of New York, gives a colorful Big Think talk that ties together everything from Flash Gordon to Albert Einstein, and from microwaves to MRIs. The title of his talk: “The Universe in a Nutshell: The Physics of Everything.” It’s 42 minutes long, but quite breezy and flies by quickly. Check it out and you’ll be hooked.
