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.
