Leonard Mlodinow and co-author Stephen Hawking say that you can explain the existence of everything without requiring God. Charles Yu’s novel details some of the perils of existence in multiple time streams. James Kakalios says that some of the early quantum physicists were inspired by science fiction. John Polkinghorne is the author of many books on the subject of bridging the gap between science and religion. Michio Kaku tells us exactly why the impossible just takes a little longer.

Neil Turok on the "Endless Universe" and the Q2C:Quantum to Cosmos Festival.
New theories in physics claim that each of us has many exact replicas of ourselves in other universes - in theory you could get in a spaceship and if you travelled far enough, meet your identical self in an identical world! Some cosmologists say that if you accept space is infinite, then even the most improbable event must take place eventually. Join our panel of cosmologists and philosophers and bend your mind. Cafe Scientific at the Sydney Writers Festival Hosted by Dr Paul Willis, reporter ABC Catalyst
Host: Marc Pelletier
Guest: Dr. Michio Kaku, Henry Semat Professor of Theoretical Physics at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
In this episode, we are very fortunate to have Dr. Michio Kaku. He is the co-founder of String Field Theory, and a Professor of Theoretical Physics at City Univerity in NY. In our discussion he talks about everything, literally: the theory of EVERYTHING! I must say, if we are going to have a true understanding of the living world, it will demand an understanding our universe and how it ‘s assembled. You can’t separate out the laws of physics from biology, they go hand in hand. Dr. Kaku also talks about the current teleportation experiments to the space shuttle, and how we might some day be able to teleport DNA. Seriously, that is some BIOTECH!!!
