Dear Gayle,

On Wednesday, April 30 the Museum of Science will host a free program with theoretical physicist Michio Kaku Details follow. We believe this program would be of interest to Tufts physics students and hope you will help us spread the word.

Many thanks.

Invisibility, teleportation, mind-reading -- these are the stuff of science fiction. Or are they? Much of today's technology was once considered to be impossible. Given enough time, couldn't today's "impossibilities" also become commonplace?

The Museum of Science, Boston will host a mind-bending presentation by best-selling author and theoretical physicist Dr. Michio Kaku on Wednesday, April 30 at 7:00 p.m.. Dr. Kaku brings to life the science behind starships, parallel universes, force fields, and other fantastic phenomena. He'll discuss the role of nanotechnology in learning to simulate invisibility, explain why NASA envisions sending fleets of nano ships to the stars, and more. Following the program, Dr. Kaku will sign copies of his latest book, Physics of the Impossible.

Michio Kaku is an internationally recognized authority on theoretical physics and the co-creator of string field theory (a branch of string field theory). He holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in Theoretical Physics at The City College of New York, where he has taught for more than 25 years. Dr. Kaku is the author of the bestsellers Beyond Einstein, Visions, Hyperspace, and Parallel Worlds, as well as several scholarly textbooks. He hosts two weekly radio programs heard on stations around the country: "Science Fantastic" and "Explorations in Science."


Tickets are available to the general public in the Museum lobby beginning at 5:45 p.m. the evening of the program. First come, first served. Museum members may reserve a limited number of free seating tickets in advance. For member reservations, call between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Monday or Tuesday the week of the program only: 617/589-3169.
