Official website of famed Physicist Dr. Michio Kaku

Dr. Michio Kaku is a theoretical physicist, best-selling author, and popularizer of science. He’s the co-founder of string field theory (a branch of string theory), and continues Einstein’s search to unite the four fundamental forces of nature into one unified theory.

He further continues to search for a “Theory of Everything,” seeking to unify the four fundamental forces of the universe—the strong force, the weak force, gravity and electromagnetism.

FORUM: Science and Innovation for Sustainable Development

The Forum on Science and Innovation for Sustainable Development is an attempt to outline the burgeoning field. Rather than looking broadly at sustainability, the Forum focuses on the way in which science and innovation can be conducted and applied to meet human needs while preserving the life support systems of the planet. It highlights people and programs that are studying nature-society interactions and applying the resulting knowledge to create a sustainability transition around the world

Exploration Science

Exploration Science was created as a repository for exploratory research on the topics of Ether Physics, Biotechnology, Electrical Theory, Informatics, Artificial Intelligence, Plant Research, Radio Science, Alternative Energy, and more. Today there are many emerging fields of scientific endeavor, and while many apply a purely quantitative methodology, a qualitative analysis will be included here as well. With that stated, all research must be substantiated by reproducible results.

Exploration Science was founded by Michael Theroux, former director of Borderland Sciences Research Foundation (1995-2000). Mr. Theroux began working with BSRF in 1987 under the directorship of Thomas Joseph Brown, and became Director himself in 1995. During his tenure as Director, Theroux orchestrated and conducted several research projects, many of which continue to this day.

Nanotechnology 101

Imagine something so small that it's a million times smaller than the length of an ant. Then consider the ability to manipulate something that small to solve problems and create new products. Welcome to the world of nanotechnology.

What it is and How it works?

Learn what nanotechnology is, explore the size of “nano,” and find out how scientists see and manipulate nanomaterials.

National Nanotechnology Initiative:

The vision of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) is a future in which the ability to understand and control matter at the nanoscale leads to a revolution in technology and industry that benefits society.

Teach Engineering: Resources for K-12 - Physics

Physics is the scientific study of the basic principles of the universe, including matter, energy, motion and force, and their interactions. Major topics include classical mechanics, thermodynamics, light and optics, electromagnetism and relativity.

See: Subject Area: Physics

Some of the subjects covered include:

See also: Physics Classroom Resources

More about TeachEngineering:

The TeachEngineering digital library provides teacher-tested, standards-based engineering content for K-12 teachers to use in science and math classrooms. Engineering lessons connect real-world experiences with curricular content already taught in K-12 classrooms. Mapped to educational content standards, TeachEngineering's comprehensive curricula are hands-on, inexpensive, and relevant to children's daily lives.

Inventorspot - Inventions, inventions, and inventions. (originally named is the most popular invention related site on the web. The Invention Gallery is a FREE service where inventors can market and showcase their inventions with our visitors and potential marketing and licensing partners. Marketing your invention in our Invention Gallery can be helpful to inventors trying to get their inventions found by the various search engines. The Inventor Forum is a great place for inventors, entrepreneurs, and other creative thinkers to hang out. Inventors can get advice and keep current on the latest news about inventor events. This invention forum, message board, chat room, community center or whatever else you want to call it is here for you.

Why does water roll off a duck's back? Or a butterfly's wings? What about the lotus leaf?

Because a duck, a butterfly and a lotus leaf have surface textures that interact with water molecules differently than animals, insects and plants that absorb water. Now, ducks, butterflies, and lotus leaves do not have the same surfaces, but studying each of them can help today's manufacturers mimic their molecular structures to create materials that function similarly.
