More recently, it was difficult for us to even imagine the world of ordinary things today. What bold predictions of science fiction writers and filmmakers about the future have a chance to come true before our eyes? Mitio Kaku, an American physicist of Japanese origin and one of the authors of string theory, is trying to answer this question. Speaking in simple language about the most complex phenomena and the latest achievements of modern science and technology, he seeks to explain the basic laws of the Universe. From the book “The Physics of the Impossible” you will learn that in the 21st century, perhaps, force fields, invisibility, mind reading, communication with extraterrestrial civilizations, and even teleportation and interstellar travel will be realized.
As you know, a person lives in 3 dimensions - length, width and height. Based on "string theory", there are 10 dimensions in the Universe, the first six of which are interconnected. This video describes all these measurements, including the last 4, within the framework of ideas about the Universe.
Stanislav Lem“What, then, is this“ Sum ”? A meeting of the essay about the fate of civilization, imbued with the "universal engineering" leitmotif? Cybernetic interpretation of the past and the future? The image of the cosmos, how it represents the constructor? A story about the engineering of Nature and human hands? Scientific and technical forecast for the next millennium? - A little bit of everything. How much is it possible, how permissible is it to trust this book? - I have no answer to this question. I do not know which of my guesses and assumptions are more plausible. There are no invulnerable ones among them, and the passage of time will erase many of them. ” So the author himself determines the range of issues addressed in this book, and his attitude towards them. In a fascinating form, S. Lem concerns both many problems of modern science and problems that will confront the science of the future.
Shintan Yau, Steve NadisRevolutionary string theory claims that we live in a ten-dimensional Universe, but only four of these dimensions are accessible to human perception. According to modern scientists, the remaining six dimensions are collapsed into an amazing structure, known as the Calabi-Yau variety. Legendary mathematician Shintan Yau, one of the discoverers of these amazing spaces, argues that geometry is not only the basis of string theory, but also lies in the very nature of our Universe. Reading this book, you and the authors repeat the exciting path of scientific discovery: from a crazy idea to a complete theory. A fascinating study awaits you, an amazing journey into hidden dimensions that define what we call the Universe, both on a large and on a small scale.
American astrophysicists have developed a mathematical model of a hyperspatial drive that allows them to overcome cosmic distances at a speed higher than the speed of light by 10³² times, which allows them to fly to the neighboring galaxy in a couple of hours and return back.

The concept of space answers the question "where?". The concept of time answers the question "when?". Sometimes, in order to see the correct picture of the universe, you need to take these two concepts and connect.
