Dr. Michio Kaku, an internationally recognized authority in Einstein's unified field theory and host of the Science Channel's "Sci Fi Science" program, will speak at Niagara County Community College at 12:30 p.m.  Thursday, Nov. 4, in NCCC's Theatre Auditorium, located near the entrance of F Building.

Kaku, pictured, holds the Henry Semat chair in theoretical physics at the City University of New York, where he has been a professor for almost 30 years. He has taught at Harvard and Princeton as well. His goal is to complete Einstein's dream of a "theory of everything," to derive an equation, perhaps no more than one inch long, which will summarize all the physical laws of the universe.

He is the co-founder of string field theory, a major branch of string theory, which is the leading candidate today for the theory of everything.
