Ever wondered why Albert Einstein remains as a legend in the field of physics well over a century after e discovered the general theory of relativity The uote below from the author sums it up All physical knowledge at the fundamental level is contained in two pillars of physics general relativity and the uantum theory Einstein was the founder of the first the godfather of the second and paved the way for the possible unification of both I chose Einstein s Cosmos as my first Michio Kaku s book to somewhat ease myself into this renowned theoretical physicist s writing and safe to say it won t be my last In spite of the subject matter the narrative was concise and fairly easy to comprehend that is until the superstring theory was discussed
very briefly you find uantum mechanics mind boggling superstring theory might just fry your brain I simply cannot fathom or imagine the existence of ten dimensions one dimension of space and nine dimensions of space However this well written book was not just about the science as it also provided a sufficient glimpse of the person behind the genius who was so far ahead of is time Highly interesting book about the greatest mind of the twentieth century I suppose everyone as an image about Einstein in their eads That Get IELTS Band 9.0 in Academic Writing Task 1 Data, Charts Graphs he s a bit of a mad scientist with that wild whiteairbut that image is not the whole truthI love Public Relations how this book describes Einstein s personal life relationships politics and of courseis work I m not a mathematician or physicist so I liked So What Are You Going to Do with That?: Finding Careers Outside Academia, Third Edition how Kaku manages to keep astrophysics and uantum mechanics both interesting and simple enough for everyone to understand Modern physics is based on two theories the theory of relativity and uantum mechanics Albert Einstein is the founder of the first and the grandfather of second He was so ahead ofis time thatalbeit very briefly

Separate Cat Dead Or Alive This Alsocat dead or alive This also one into the alleyway of why is it that a single universe makes sense than multiple universes These uestions are totally fascinating and Kaku really does a good job in illuminating the tricky concepts not just behind the theories Einstein agreed with or pioneered but those e opposed and criticized which gives the reader a context a thing indispensable in a biography I found the book immensely enjoyable on many fronts though arguably biased towards string theory a field Kaku famously works in Yes it s taken me this long to get round to reading it I bought it as cheap damaged stock around 2005 Yesterday I slid it off the shelf blew off the dust and started reading I finished it a few minutes agoThe blurb on the back says You don t Histologie have to be Einstein to understand Einstein And that is spot on A wonderful read giving easy access to Einstein s science We start withim trying to understand a light beam by imagining L'Attaque des Titans T28 himself running along side it and end withis unfinished attempts to unify all the universe s forces By Describing Them As Arising describing them as arising different geometries of space timeMichio Kaku does a great job It s very easy to read no elaborate fomulae to contend with and flows along giving an excellent insight into Einstein s contributions I particularly like the way Einstein s work is rooted in context other physicists and mathematicians and their contributions are discussed Kaku also does a great job in Mises en situation professionnelle AS: Aide-soignant helping the reader visualise some of the principles discovered the Bose Einstein Condensate suddenly became easy for me to visualise for exampleAn excellent read for anyone slightly interested in Physics the great man or theistory of technologies all this uantum mechanics and relativity stuff being so incredibly counter intuitive language seems even of a barrier than usual it s tough to properly tease out if much of what s written is meant to be metaphorical epistemological or just plain Cucina Povera hard up muthafuckin relative of course truth or maybe some kind ofybrid so while kaku does an admirable job of simplifying some of einstein s abstruse mindfucks there re other aspects that send a bug straight up my ass ie regarding Eduquer son chien pour les Nuls poche heisenberg s uncertainty principle This was not just a by product of the crudeness of our instruments it was a fundamental law of nature Even God could not know both the precise position and momentum of an electron re that final line say what now that just seems some kinda unnecessary obfuscatin booshit maybe kaku is pandering to whoe thinks must be the typical reader of a book of this nature pop science series called great discoveries etc but whhhhyyyy include that line why bring a god who knows things into the discussion when you re dealing with all this existenzy shit you really can t use the expression god only knows because y know that might very well be the case On the.
