Invisibility, teleportation, mind readingthe stuff of science fiction, right? Yet much of todays technology was once considered impossible. Given enough time, couldnt incredible ideas like these also become commonplace? In this unique presentation, author and physicist Dr. Michio Kaku brings to life the science behind parallel universes and other fantastic phenomena. Hell discuss the role of nanotechnology in learning to simulate invisibility, explain why NASA envisions sending nanoships to the stars, and reveal how nanoscience may provide an escape from the death of the universe itself.
Dr. Tejal Desai of UCSF talks about the intersection of nanotechnology and medicine, an area of research that has dramatic implications for the future. It could lead to artificially engineered tissues, or more effective drug delivery. It could also result in new kinds of health monitoring devices, as Dr. Thomas Murray, from the Hastings Center, explains. Want to get off the grid but think its just too expensive? UCB's Dr. Jeff Grossman explains how nanotechnology may be used to make solar panels cheaper. Well also hear from philosopher Patrick Lin of the Nanoethics Group about ethical dilemmas that crop up when we try to improve our lives through nanotechnology.
