To consider habitable worlds, advanced civilizations, and how to find
and classify them, Astrobiology Magazine had the chance to discover from
Dr. Michio Kaku that the laws of physics has much to say about such
possibilities--at least much more than where you might expect
speculation to lead you from our tiny corner of the universe.

Americans trust science and technology to keep them safe and sound. They expect cures for Alzheimer's disease, spinal injuries and cancer within five years, and favor the harvesting of embryonic stem cells for medical uses -- even though they are squeamish about paying for the controversial research. Those are among findings of a Channel 13 survey that suggests the public is bullish on science and technology.
"In spite of the Bush administration's opposition to funding of some stem cell research, the American people have heard enough about it to say, 'I want that technology,'" said Michio Kaku , a physicist from the City University of New York and author of "Einstein's Cosmos." He said the survey also shows people are curious about science despite unhappy experiences in school. "We grind it out of them" with dull rote-learning, Kaku said. "We're all born scientists until we hit junior high school."
The mystery equation that could explain all creation may be only an inch long when written out — but it’s simply too complicated for any human to decipher, a renowned physics expert told a crowd of hundreds at Texas A&M University on Saturday. Nevertheless, theoretical physics professor Michio Kaku from the City University of New York continues to work on Albert Einstein’s quest to find a “theory of everything.”
It is a still-undiscovered equation that, theoretically, would unify the four fundamental forces in the universe: gravity, electromagnetic, weak nuclear and strong nuclear. Such an equation could allow scientists to explore what led up to the Big Bang — which many believe was the birth of the universe — how it occurred, and where it took place. Kaku’s lecture was part of a monthlong workshop that has brought many top physicists to College Station. It was sponsored by the George P. and Cynthia W. Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics at Texas A&M.
