How Science Will Shape Our Lives By The Year 2100

X-ray vision, doubled life spans, lots of robots, and zoos filled with animals that are now extinct.

It may sound like a science fiction novel from your childhood, but this is the not-too-distant future envisioned by quantum physicist Michio Kaku in his book Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100.

Today in a show originally aired in March, Steve Kraske talks with Kaku about his fascinating predictions, and find out what else he sees for mankind in the days to come.

Because today’s broadcast is a repeat, we are unable to take new phone calls and email.  You can join others in a conversation online on KCUR's Facebook page or Tweet us at @KCURUpToDate.

Michio Kaku is the co-founder of String Field Theory and is the author of international best-selling books such as Hyperspace, Visions, and Beyond Einstein. Kaku is the Henry Semat Professor in Theoretical Physics at the City University of New York.  Learn more about Michio Kaku here.
