This week my teaser is from Physics of the Impossible by Michio Kaku. I'm thrilled to finally be reading one of his works; I'd heard of him and noticed his books (and even wrote a blog post about the guy) but I'd never gotten around to actually reading any of them. Physics of the Impossible is quite interesting: He explores when and how society might achieve certain technological capabilities (most of them from pop culture, which makes my nerdy side do the happy dance) such as invisibility, teleportation, telekinesis, time travel, etc., etc.
Given that the number of moons probably greatly outnumbers the number of planets in a solar system, and given that there could be millions of wandering planets in the galaxy, the number of astronomical bodies with life-forms in the universe might be much larger than previously believed.-p. 134
On the other hand, other astronomers have concluded, for a variety of reasons, that the chances for life on planets within the Goldilocks zone are probably much lower than originally estimated by Drake.
Are there any books/authors you've heard about and want to read but haven't gotten around to yet? If so, which ones?
Got any teasers to share?
