"Formerly the domain of fiction, moving human civilization to the stars is increasingly becoming a scientific possibility--and a necessity. Whether in the near future due to climate change and the depletion of finite resources, or in the distant future due to catastrophic cosmological events, we must face the reality that humans will one day need to leave planet Earth to survive as a species. World-renowned physicist and futurist Michio Kaku explores in rich, intimate detail the process by which humanity may gradually move away from the planet and develop a sustainable civilization in outer space. He reveals how cutting-edge developments in robotics, nanotechnology, and biotechnology may allow us to terraform and build habitable cities on Mars. He then takes us beyond the solar system to nearby stars, which may soon be reached by nanoships traveling on laser beams at near the speed of light. Finally, he brings us beyond our galaxy, and even beyond our universe, to the possibility of immortality, showing us how humans may someday be able to leave our bodies entirely and laser port to new havens in space. With irrepressible enthusiasm and wonder, Dr. Kaku takes readers on a fascinating journey to a future in which humanity may finally fulfill its long-awaited destiny among the stars"--… (mer)

Interesting overview of the broad scale of humanity going from origin to planet-scale to star-scale to galactic. None of this was new to me, but it was very well presented, and is a great introduction, overview, and summary.

It extensively referenced a classic sci fi novel which is on my to read list: Stapleton’s Starmaker. I skipped over those parts to avoid spoilers. ( )

Doesn't have that much to say but it's very uplifting and pleasant to read. ( )

El último libro de Michio Kaku. Un relato sobre galaxias, tecnología y el futuro de la humanidad. Nuestra existencia está amenazada: las glaciaciones, los impactos de asteroides, la capacidad finita de la Tierra e incluso la lejana pero inevitable muerte del Sol son riesgos de tal magnitud que, si no abandonamos la Tierra, deberemos asumir la idea de nuestra extinción. Por eso, para Michio Kaku nuestro destino yace en las estrellas, no por la curiosidad o la pasión aventurera que los humanos llevamos dentro, sino por una simple cuestión de supervivencia.

EnEl futuro de la humanidad, el Dr. Michio Kaku explora los pasos necesarios para lograr este ambicioso objetivo, y describe las tecnologías que nos permitirán colonizar y terraformar otros planetas, así como explorar las infinitas estrellas del universo. A lo largo de estas páginas aprenderemos sobre robots autorreplicantes, nanomateriales y cultivos de bioingeniería que nos permitirán abandonar nuestro planeta; sobre naves nanométricas, velas láser, máquinas de fusión ram-jet, motores antimateria y cohetes hiperimpulsores que nos llevarán a las estrellas, y las tecnologías radicales que alterarán nuestro cuerpo para poder sobrevivir al largo y agotador...

Well-written and accessible book about space exploration and moving humanity off Earth. Inspirational. ( )

A very fascinating book. Kaku has a terrific way of illuminating many different aspects of space travel, life on Earth, Mars, the Moon, etc, (in the future, and near future), as well as many different eventualities of Earth, humans (the human race), and civilizations (both our own and alien).

This is a very all encompassing piece of work. That details many many many different facets of our own future, as well as the future of the universe through physics and the sciences. I also loved Kaku's way of extrapolating different aspects of our culture into his explanations. Citing Asimov novels, Arthur C. Clarke novels (like the rare - and personal favorite of mine - 'The Fountains of Paradise'), as well as movies like 2001, Interstellar, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Terminator, etc, etc, etc, etc.

Overall a very rich and fascinating piece of work that sheds a lot of light on interstellar space travel, robots, nanotechnology, AI, quantum mechanics/string theory, gravity, etc, etc, etc. ( )
