Sci-Fi Science – Galactic Colonization

Today on Discovery Enterprise we present the second episode of the second season of Dr. Michio Kaku’s renowned and highly acclaimed documentary series “Sci Fi Science” and explore the exciting possibility of creating a galactic civilization.

In this exciting episode of Sci Fi Science, Dr. Michio Kaku comes up with some very intriguing plans for expanding humanity’s presence throughout the Milky Way Galaxy.

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?

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.

Sci Fi Science- How to Become a Superhero

The ability to move “faster than a speeding bullet, to be more powerful than a speeding locomotive and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound” may soon be within your reach.

Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no it ain’t superman, its you in your brand new Super-suit!

Michio Kaku reveals his plan to create a super suit which will give the wearer superpowers equivalent to that of the superheroes found in comic books! This according to Dr. Kaku may be possible using the laws of twenty-first century physics.

How to Travel to a Parallel Universe

Today on Discovery Enterprise we are going to travel with physicist Dr. Michio Kaku on one of the greatest Sci-Fi expeditions ever conceived and design a gateway to a parallel universe where the alternate realities of our imagination come alive and Doppelganger versions of ourselves are manifest.

MIT cosmologist Alan Guth explains his recipe for creating your own universe in the lab and physicist Neil Turok explains how a parallel universe is only an atom’s length away from us.

So join us as we take a plunge down the Cosmic Rabbit Hole into the ultimate Cosmic Wonderland.
