"Visions of the Future and the Past That Made It Possible"

Dr. Michio Kaku, Professor of Theoretical Physics & Author, paints a picture of how the advance of science in society will change the world and predicts what that might look like -- from the end of the silicon age to robots merging with humans and the possibility of curing all diseases and doing away with death. And all of this will be part of the development of a planetary civilization.

Cathryn Prince, Journalist and Author, tells the story of how a meteor crashing into Connecticut, and the man who dedicated his life to studying that meteor, changed science for all time and laid the basis for everything we know about astrophysics today.
