** SOLD OUT ** Science: Michio Kaku: ‘Physics of the Future’

Great Hall; enter on 8th Avenue. $5.

Civics, Science

Since his last Town Hall appearance in April, physicist Michio Kaku has evolved into pop culture’s preeminent voice in the world of science. From his bestselling books (Physics of the Impossible; Hyperspace; and Physics of the Future, now in paperback) to his frequent morning-show appearances and his own series on the Science Channel, Kaku analyzes the revolutionary developments in medicine, computers, and quantum physics that will change our way of life, our view of “impossible”— and civilization itself. Presented with Elliott Bay Book Company.

Town Hall members receive priority seating.

    How about an “add to calendar” button on all Town Hall announcements?
