Is civilization going to expand to outer space?

Melbourne ticket holders can see and listen in on his singular stance. At the end, there'll be the option to ask your most pressing questions.

Being passionate and knowledgeable about your field is one thing. Successfully communicating that passion and the intricacies of what you do is something else entirely. As Sir David Attenborough has helped millions of people appreciate the majesty of nature, 71-year-old American theoretical physicist Michio Kaku has brought millions to modern-day science.

The bestselling author has written nine books and regularly appears on podcasts, narrates documentaries and gives public talks – all in the name of demystifying and popularising the technological advancements of humankind, á la Neil deGrasse Tyson, Carl Sagan, Bill Nye and local poster boy Doctor Karl. In particular, Kaku is a “futurist” – someone who speculates on forthcoming technologies and the effect they’ll have on society 10, 20, 50 or 1000 years from now.
