Dr. Michio Kaku examines the real-world science behind science fiction concepts. With the help of scientists and engineers, Dr. Kaku explores ideas such as force fields, phasers, teleportation, light-sabers, time travel and more.
Exploring the universe on a ship that can boldly go where no man has gone before isn't just a dream. Dr. Michio Kaku reveals how we really could one day build a warp drive and set out on our own star trek.
The parallel universes of science fiction -- gateways to worlds of limitless possibilities -- turn out to be as real as they are fantastic. Dr. Michio Kaku reveals how future civilizations could build a machine to reach one.
Teleportation is sci-fi's most exciting way to travel, zapping a person's molecules through space on a transporter beam right out of Star Trek. Dr. Michio Kaku reveals how we might all one day be saying, "beam me up, Scotty."
A cloak of invisibility isn't just some Harry Potter fantasy -- Dr. Michio Kaku drafts blueprints for a real invisibility cloak and reveals that vanishing into thin air could be much closer than we think.
The lightsaber, a sword made of pure light that can cut through anything, is a truly awesome weapon, but it's not just a science fiction fantasy. Dr. Michio Kaku reveals how we could one day build a real working light saber.
Hurtling across the galaxy in a starship powered by anti-matter isn't some sci-fi writer's impossible dream, as Dr. Michio Kaku proves when he reveals his blueprints for a spacecraft that can journey to the stars.
Every starship needs armor to protect it from asteroids and enemy attack, and Dr. Michio Kaku reveals how cutting-edge science could be used to create force fields that might one day save our spacecraft from an alien onslaught.
From Terminator to Star Wars, no sci-fi movie is complete without an intelligent robot. Theoretical physicist Dr. Michio Kaku reveals how artificial intelligence will be created and how smart robots could threaten us all.
Imagine turning yourself into a crime-fighting superhero just like Batman or Iron Man. Dr. Michio Kaku designs a suit that would give the wearer the superpowers of a comic book superhero. Take that bad guys!
The flying saucer defies gravity and is the ultimate science-fiction vehicle. Using cutting-edge research and theoretical physics, Dr. Michio Kaku reveals how one day we could all be using the aliens' favorite mode of transport.
I sometimes wonder if these whatever you want to call them spent as much time dreaming up ways to for example build roads and get clean drinking water to the 3rd World it might not be so insulting when they call themselves Scientist. Oooops my mistake why not just use the Geneses Effect. Lets hope by the time we can travel interstellar distances everybody here will have electricity 24/7 and clean drinking water. What a crock of #$@%^ it's Science Fiction 100%, just because this (nope he does not deserve to be called that in this show) person says it's not Science Fiction just shows how silly he is. Total waste of time.
