A new TV series is just about to debut on the Science channel called Sci-Fi Science: Physics of the Impossible. The show is hosted by quite possibly the smartest dude ever to live, Dr. Michio Kaku, and explores the science fiction creations that we know without a shadow of a doubt to be futuristic and fantastical impossibilities, and offers realistic ways to bring them into existence.
One of the episodes is set to cover a topic that will be near and dear to our very own geek hearts: lightsabers! The episode will take a look at the fictional super-weapon and then try and figure out a way to actually create one. Whether they accomplish such a thing is unknown and rather unlikely, but hell, we all just won’t be able to help but watch and see for ourselves.
Head on over to the other side to read the show’s synopsis and watch a short clip from the lightsaber episode, as well as a clip from their parallel universe episode.
Explore the world of the seemingly impossible with the all-new series SCI FI SCIENCE. Hosted by internationally-renowned physicist and co-founder of string field theory, Dr. Michio Kaku, this series poses the idea that science fiction may not be so far from science fact. Examine topics that currently seem so far out… of the realm of possibility, such as invisibility cloaks, teleportation, time travel and more.
You can head to Mr. Kaku’s website for more. I’m not completely familiar with the man, but all I do know, is that I want to drink with him and talk scientific theories all night.
Sci-Fi Science: Physics of the Impossible will debut on December 1 at 10PM on the Science channel.
