Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration of the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation and Time Travel is an exciting book from Michio Kaku that throws light on how elements of science fiction such as UFOs, starships, aliens, precognition, etc. could actually become science facts. Through the book, the readers learn that the most bizarre ideas like teleportation, time travel, phasers, etc. could eventually become a reality in the near future.
This book actually takes a very scientific look at the technologies in use at present and carefully explains to the readers what can be expected in terms of time travel, teleportation, etc. This book is written to be easily understood and followed by a non-scientist with a simplified explanation of principles of physics. This book carefully explains the limitations of laws of physics and also expounds on the present and potentially attainable technologies. With this, readers get wonderful clarity on technologies and discoveries of the future.
Even though the topic may be difficult to understand, the book has been devised to explain the most complicated concepts in the simplest of terms. The book is divided into compact, short chapters which can be easily read one at a time. This makes the book ideal for easy reading in short sittings without overwhelming the reader with too much complicated information. Through the book the author divides the phenomena into three levels or classes, those that are are currently impossible but do not violate laws of physics, those that may not be realised till the next millennium and phenomena that violate the laws of physics and are therefore impossible.
