Renowned Physicist, Futurist Michio Kaku Speaks to Stevenson Students and Faculty

November 17, 2015 7 AM

World-renowned physicist Michio Kaku engaged in an energetic discussion with Stevenson University students and faculty Tuesday at the St. Paul Companies Pavilion on the Greenspring Campus.

Kaku is most widely known as a popularizer of science and has appeared on media platforms worldwide. He visited the University prior to his appearance at the Baltimore Speaker Series. Stevenson is the lead sponsor of the series.

The co-founder of string field theory (a branch of string theory), Kaku’s “day job” (as he puts it) is continuing Albert Einstein’s search to unite the four fundamental forces of nature into one unified theory that will summarize all the physical laws of the universe.

Following his opening remarks, Kaku held a Q&A session with students and faculty in attendance, fielding questions ranging from time travel and aging to human consciousness and alternative forms of life in the universe.

Stevenson University, known for its distinctive career focus, is the third-largest independent university in Maryland with more than 4,400 students pursuing bachelor’s, master’s, and adult bachelor’s programs at locations in Stevenson and Owings Mills.
