Physics of the Impossible free pdf From cyborgs, starships, UFOs, aliens and antimatter to telepathy, invisibility, psychokinesis and precognition, Michio Kaku's "Physics of the Impossible" is an exciting look at how science fiction could soon become science fact. Albert Einstein said, 'If at first an idea does not sound absurd, there is no hope for it.' "Physics of the Impossible" shows how our most far-fetched ideas today - from Star Trek's phasers and teleportation to time travel as envisioned by Back to the Future - are destined to become tomorrow's reality. Michio Kaku, bestselling science author and one of the world's most acclaimed physicists, looks at the technologies of the future and explains what's just around the corner, what we might have to wait a few millennia to get our hands on and how surprisingly little of it is truly impossible. "A brilliant, provocative, freewheeling tour around the exotic shores of physics". ("Independent"). "A rich compendium of jaw-dropping reality checks". ("The Times"). "One of the world's most distinguished physicists ...takes the reader on a journey to the frontiers of science and beyond". ("Guardian"). "After reading Kaku's boundless enthusiasm for the future, what you wouldn't give for a real-life time machine to travel forwards and see just how accurate his predictions are". ("Sunday Telegraph"). Michio Kaku is a leading theoretical physicist and one of the founders of string theory, widely regarded as the strongest candidate for the 'theory of everything'. He is also one of the most gifted popularizers of science of his generation. His books published by Penguin include "Parallel Worlds", "The Physics of the Future" and "The Physics of the Impossible". He holds the Henry Semat Professorship in Theoretical Physics at the City University of New York, where he has taught for over twenty-five years.
