Sci-Fi Science – Earth 2.0

Filed under: Alex Michael Bonnici,Dr. Michio Kaku,Sci Fi Science,Terraforming — ralphbuttigieg @ 7:05 am

Today on Discovery Enterprise we present the first second season episode of Dr. Michio Kaku’s Sci Fi Science and explore the exciting possibility of Terraforming the planet Mars.


In this first instalment of the second season of Sci Fi Science, Dr. Michio Kaku comes up with plans for the construction of Earth 2.0 (a second Earth) through the process of terraforming.

Terraforming (literally, “Earth-forming”) of a planet, moon, or other body is the hypothetical process of deliberately modifying its atmosphere, temperature, surface topography or ecology to be similar to those of Earth to make it habitable by humans an other terrestrial organisms.

Travelling Through Time


Time travel has been the staple of science fiction novels, television programs and major motion ever since H.G. Wells first penned his classic prototypical scientific romance “The Time Machine” in 1895.

However, when time travel appears in Sci-Fi there is usually very little description of how the time machine actually works or the science underlying the principles of its operation. In reality there is a scientific basis to the notion of voyaging through time and it is firmly rooted in the physics of both special and general relativity as revealed by Albert Einstein in the miracle year of 1905 and during the war torn year of 1915.


In pervious postings in Discovery Enterprise we have presented the work of American physicist Ron Mallet and others who have been inspired by Einstein’s work to look at the possibility of time travel as a serious proposition.

Einstein revealed to us that the space-time continuum, in which our universe is embedded, is malleable and that both space and time may be interchangeable physical structures.

In today’s instalment of the acclaimed documentary series “Sci Fi Science” host Dr. Michio Kaku, a theoretical physicist by profession and Sci Fi fan at heart, looks at the possibility of taking the seemingly impossible physics of time travel out of the realm of science fiction and into dominion of scientific and technological reality.

How to Explore the Universe in Style

Will such futuristic technologies as depicted in our favourite science fiction television shows ever become a real possibility?

Today on Discovery Enterprise we join physicist Michio Kaku as he designs and unveils his plan for a way to explore the universe in style.


The key to its design is that staple of any great space adventure series – the warp drive. As any Star Trek fan knows the warp drive is the common name for various types of faster-than-light spacecraft propulsion systems, both fictional and hypothetical.


Will true Sci Fi fans be pleased with what Dr. Michio Kaku comes up with?

Are Aliens a Threat?

Are Aliens a Threat? Could space aliens be out to get us? Stephen Hawking thinks so and he tells Larry and YOU why! And, what he thinks an alien would look like! If extraterrestrials could be a danger to us, as Hawking suggests, should we stop trying to contact them? Dan Aykroyd and others. debate!

Michio Kaku’s Visions of the Future – the Quantum Revolution

Today on Discovery Enterprise we present the third episode of Michio Kaku’s magnificent documentary series “Visions of the Future”. Today we enter the realm of the Quantum Revolution with its promise of many technological to come.


The Quantum Revolution could turn many of the ideas of science fiction into science fact – from meta-materials with mind-boggling properties like invisibility through limitless quantum energy. And, room temperature superconductors to Arthur C Clarke’s space elevator. Some scientists even forecast that in the latter half of the century everybody will have a personal fabricator that re-arranges molecules to produce everything from almost anything similar in many ways to the replicator seen in Star Trek known as a Nanoforge.

Michio Kaku’s Visions of the Future – The Biomolecular Revolution

Today on Discovery Enterprise we present the second episode of Michio Kaku’s Visions of the Future. In today’s installment we enter the brave new world of the biomolecular revolution.


Since this program first aired scientists under the leadership of J. Craig Venter, have succeeded in creating the first self-replicating synthetic life form. We are living on the cusp of a fantastic revolution that promises a future of unprecedented health and longevity: DNA screening could prevent many diseases, gene therapy could cure them and, thanks to lab-grown organs, the human body could be repaired as easily as a car, with spare parts readily available. Ultimately, the ageing process itself could be slowed down or even halted.

Michio Kaku’s Visions of The Future – The Intelligence Revolution

Our newspaper headlines, with each passing day, sound more and more like the opening sentences of a Sci Fi novel. Scientists have just announced the creation the first artificial life form. Can artificial intelligence be very far off on humanity’s horizon?


Today on Discovery Enterprise we present the opening installment of an exciting three part documentary series entitled “Visions of the Future” hosted by Michio Kaku. In this first episode Dr. Kaku explains how artificial intelligence will revolutionize homes, workplaces and lifestyles, and how virtual worlds will become so realistic that they will rival the physical world.

Robots with human-level intelligence may finally become a reality, and in the ultimate stage of mastery, we’ll even be able to merge our minds with machine intelligence.

Physics of The Impossible-How to Teleport with Michio Kaku

Teleportation is sci-fi’s most exciting way to travel. Imagine zapping your molecules through space on a transporter beam right out of Star Trek. Dr. Kaku reveals how we might all one day be saying, Beam me up Scotty.

Sci Fi Science – Designing a Lightsaber

Today on Discovery Enterprise we are going to look at the possibility of designing a working light saber. The lightsaber, as every science fiction fan knows, is a weapon which has a key role in the Star Wars movies and the franchise’s expanded universe.

The lightsaber consists of a polished metal hilt which projects a blade of energy about one meter long. The lightsaber is the signature weapon of the Jedi order and their Sith counterparts, both of whom can use them for offence, or to deflect blaster bolts. In today’s episode of Sci Fi Science, Dr. Michio Kaku reveals how we could one day build a light saber using the knowledge of twenty-first century physics and engineering.
