BUFFALO, N.Y. – The University at Buffalo will kick off its 2013-14 Distinguished Speakers Series with a lecture by theoretical physicist and futurist Michio Kaku at 8 p.m. in Alumni Arena on the North Campus.
Kaku, the Henry Semat Professor of Theoretical Physics at City College of New York, is the co-founder of string field theory and continues Einstein’s search for a “Theory of Everything” that will unify the four fundamental forces of the universe.
A popularizer of science, Kaku is the author of bestselling books “Physics of the Future,” “Physics of the Impossible” and “Einstein’s Cosmos.” He hosted BBC’s “Time” series and hosts the weekly radio programs “Science Fantastic” and “Explorations in Science,” both heard on stations across the country.
During the program, audio and/or video photography, as well as still photography, will be limited to the first five minutes of his lecture.
