Eminent theoretical physicist and co-founder of string theory interviews Advanced Cell's Chief Scientist about his research and new book 'Biocentrism'
WORCESTER, Mass., Sept. 21 (PRNewswire) --Advanced Cell Technology, Inc. (OTCBB:ACTC.PK-News)announced today that Dr. Robert Lanza, its Chief Scientific Officer, will be featured this week on "Explorations in Science" with Dr. Michio Kaku, an hour long radio program on science, technology, politics, and the environment. It is broadcast each week on public radio in New York City (WBAI 99.5 FM), and re-aired in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Tampa, Houston, and stations across the country. Explorations can also be heard around the world via the web at www.kpfa.org/archive/show/51. The show focuses on Dr. Lanza's research on cloning, stem cells, and his new book "Biocentrism."
Dr. Lanza is also scheduled to appear on Dr. Kaku's commercial radio show "Science Fantastic," which airs in 127 cities around the country, making it the largest nationally syndicated science radio show on commercial radio. The program focuses the future of science. Past featured guests include Nobel laureates and top researchers on the topics of string theory, time travel, black holes, gene therapy, aging, space travel, artificial intelligence and SETI.
Dr. Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics at City College of New York. He is the co-founder of string field theory, and is currently engaged in defining the "Theory of Everything," which seeks to unify the fundamental forces of the universe. In addition to authoring textbooks on string theory and quantum field theory, Dr. Kaku is also the best- selling author of popular books, such as "Hyperspace," "Beyond Einstein," and "Physics of the Impossible" (which is currently on the New York Times top 10 bestseller list). On his show, Lanza discusses the cutting edge of cloning (including the cloning of endangered/extinct species and cells for medical therapy), as well as the future of regenerative medicine using stem cells to grow organs and to treat human disease.
Drs. Lanza and Kaku also discuss "Biocentrism: How life and consciousness are the keys to understanding the true nature of the universe." "We think life is an accident of physics and chemistry," explains Lanza. "But a long list of experiments suggests just the opposite. Amazingly, if you add life to the equation, you can explain some of the biggest puzzles of science. For instance, it becomes clear why space and time -- and even the properties of matter itself -- depend on the observer. Biocentrism even explains why the laws of the universe are fine-tuned for the existence of life."
