"The future of humanity: terraforming Mars, interstellar travel, immortality, and our destiny beyond Earth", by Dr. Michio Kaku

February 16, 2019

We are entering a new Golden Age of space exploration. Formerly a domain of fiction, moving human civilization to the stars is increasingly becoming a scientific possibility. The world-renowned physicist and futurist Dr. Michio Kaku presents a compelling vision of how humanity may develop a sustainable civilization in outer space. He reveals the developments in robotics, nanotechnology, and biotechnology that may allow us to terraform and build habitable cities on Mars and beyond. He then journeys out of our solar system and discusses how new technologies such as nanoships, laser sails, and fusion rockets may actually make interstellar travel a possibility. With irrepressible enthusiasm and a deep understanding of the cutting-edge research in space travel, Dr. Kaku takes readers on an exhilarating and inspiring journey to the future in distant galaxies.
