Theoretical physicist Kaku describes the ways that scientific revolutions have dramatically shaped the 20th century. Drawing on this historical momentum, he forecasts how scientific research already being done is likely to impact the 21st century. He suggests that humans will no longer be observers, but active creators and manipulators of matter, life, and intelligence. This is a wide-ranging discussion of scientific discoveries, research, and concepts with equally broad scope of ways that science may affect humans. There is something of interest to nearly everyone in this book.
