Worldwide Science Icon Dr. Michio Kaku to Explore Next 20 Years in Evening Presentation


Southeast’s SEclipse activities will conclude with a keynote address by Dr. Michio Kaku, one of the most widely recognized figures in science in the world today, just hours after this region will observe a rare total solar eclipse. His presentation is titled “The Next 20 Years: How Science Will Revolutionize Business, the Economy, Medicine, and Our Way of Life.”

The presentation is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in the Show Me Center.

During his evening presentation, Kaku is expected to reflect on the day’s events and offer insights into this phenomenon. Kaku is an internationally recognized authority in two areas. The first is Einstein’s unified field theory, which he is attempting to complete. The other is to predict trends affecting business, commerce and finance based on the latest research in science. He has written three New York Times Bestsellers. His latest, “The Future of the Mind,” hit number one on the New York Times, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble Bestsellers Lists, making it the number one hardcover, non-fiction book in the country.
