According to Albert Einstein, 'If at first an idea does not sound absurd, there is not hope for it.' Physics of the Impossible shows how our most far-fetched ideas today are destined to become tomorrow's reality. Michio Kaku, bestselling author and one of the world's most acclaimed physicists, looks at the science of the future and explains what's just around the corner, what we might have to wait a few millennia to get our hands on and how surprisingly little of it is truly impossible.
'One of the world's most distinguished physicists … takes the reader on a journey to the frontiers of science and beyond' Guardian
