Michio Kaku PhD on Alien Civilization Typology

Do you frown when you hear some UFO-nerd talking about alien civilizations? Well we all sure do, but when considerations about life in the outer space are made by a renowned scientist, that’s different. Known to many, writer of popular science books (Visions, Hyperspace, Parallel Worlds), Brief and to the Point invites Professor Michio Kaku to tell us a little bit about alien civilizations. Below, you will find a brief Bio of Professor Kaku. If you prefer, you can directly watch the video after the article.

Physicist Michio Kaku received a Bachelor of Science, summa cum laude from Harvard University in 1968 where he placed first in his physics class. He went on to attend the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley and received a Ph.D. in 1972, and held a lectureship at Princeton University in 1973.

Kaku currently holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics at City College of New York, where he has taught for more than 25 years. Presently, he is engaged defining the "Theory of Everything", which seeks to unify the four fundamental forces of the universe: the strong force, the weak force, gravity and electromagnetism. He has also been a visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and New York University.

Kaku is the author of several scholarly textbooks and has had more than 70 articles published in journals covering superstring theory, supergravity supersymmetry, and hadronic physics. Kaku's h-index, derived from the number citations referencing his work in academic literature is 22.
