SD, Michio Kaku, Sattar discussed on Science Fantastic with Michio Kaku


Sd cofounder of string author of the international best sellers hyperspace visions and parallel worlds the latest cutting edge developments in science science fantastic with professor michio kaku this is science fantastic with professor michio kaku on science fantastic we profile the amazing jaw dropping scientific discoveries which are revolutionizing our world and touching our lives and in this hour we're going to go past mars pass jupiter past sattar we're gonna go past pluto we're going to go to the nearby stars that's right we're gonna talk about stars ships because that's what we physicists are talking about and it is of course talk about going davar's but we physicists are dreamers and we wanna know well is it physically possible to send people to alfredsson tari the closest star to the planet earth only a hop skip in a jump up 24 chilean miles a saturn rocket well a saturn rocket would take 70000 years 70000 years to reach alfredsson tari saw obviously we need to go beyond chemical rockets we have to go to atomic rockets anti matter raucous warped drive you name it we physicists have looked at the physics behind some of these speculative designs and if you saw the movie passengers it starts off on a starship the distances are so great that you have to go under suspended animation to reach a new home mm orbiting another star in the universe in already we scientists have identified three thousand six hundred planets orbiting other star systems in the milky way galaxy and so we know they're out there and in the movie passengers well ehlass hollywood actors go to the nearest star a go to a star with an earth like planets going around it and if you saw matthew mcconaughey hey in the movie interstellar we go even passed that we go to the other side of the galaxy going through a worm hole and so in this hour we're gonna talk about worm halls we're going to talk about different kinds of rocket designs and my colleague stephen hawking has another idea that may take us to the stars in may be a quarter of a century 25 years and that is why not sent tiny computer chips put a sale a parachute around each computer chip blasts the paris with the laser beam and because it's so small and come pack you could send it to a fraction of the speed of light within just a few minutes think.
