About This Book
In PARALLEL WORLDS, his first book of physics since Hyperspace, Michio Kaku describes the extraordinary advances that have transformed cosmology and remade our understanding of the universe. The startling discovery of a mysterious energy driving the universe to expand and scientists' attempts to reconcile the four faces of the universe have led to the development of the revolutionary M-theory. The leading candidate for Einstein's fabled "theory of everything," M-theory depicts our universe as a "bubble" floating in an expansive eleven-dimensional "multiverse." Leading physicists now envision our universe as one of countless "bubble universes" only millimeters away from each other. In this new picture, Big Bangs create new universes all the time and, if these parallel universes are as close as physicists believe, our universe could eventually collide with one of them -- with cosmic consequences.
Kaku deftly weaves lucid scientific explanations and engaging profiles of the physicists working in the field, with a compelling narrative of breakthroughs in physics, astronomy, and cosmology that have led to M-theory. If scientists' cosmological predictions are correct, time travel between these parallel universes is not only possible -- it may be the only way humankind, billions of years from now, can save itself from a dying universe.
Dr. Michio Kaku is professor of theoretical physics at the City University of New York and a co-founder of string field theory. He is the author of several widely acclaimed books, including Visions, Beyond Einstein, and Hyperspace, which was named one of the best science books of the year by the New York Times and the Washington Post. He hosts a nationally syndicated radio science program and has appeared on such national television shows as Nightline, 60 Minutes, Good Morning America, and Larry King Live.
