Michio Kaku

Kaku's not your grandpa's egghead, that's for sure. In addition to co-founding string field theory -- kinda egghead, right? -- the hip dude writes for Wired, makes regular appearances on CNN and the Discovery Channel, and pens best-selling books like the groovy Hyperspace that are accessible even to folks who are closer to chimps than to people on the evolutionary family tree. His new tome, Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration Into the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel, draws on popular sci-fi tenets to explore the potential real-world technologies of the future.
