Sci-Fi Science Seasons 1 & 2 DVD

The Sci-Fi Science Seasons 1 & 2 DVDs takes viewers on a futuristic exploration sure to appeal to science-fiction fans and technology buffs. The 24 episodes cover everything from light sabers to teleportation to alien invasions. The sci-fi science videos provide a fascinating look at mind-blowing technology and the dreamers and thinkers behind it. Season 1 Ep. 1) How To Build A Light Saber: Dr. Michio Kaku uses cutting edge science and existing technology to show how we could build the most popular movie weapon ever. He examines the awesome power of the laser and shows how to harness the power of lightning. A visit to Harvard University's Dr. Ron Walsworth shows that stopping light isn't quite the hurdle you might think. At MIT Professor Brian Wardle explains how nanotechnology might one day be used to generate enough energy to power up a lightsaber. Ep. 2) How To Blow Up a Planet: Could a real life death star ever actually be built? Dr. Michio Kaku thinks so. Fellow astrophysics professor Stephen Thorsett reveals that out in deep space a devastating gamma ray burster is pointing right at Planet Earth. Kaku believes that an advanced civilization might be able to manipulate these bursters and beam destruction onto whatever planet they liked. He visits the world's biggest laser at the National Ignition Facility in Livermore California and sees how fusion power might one day provide enough energy to power a laser that could destroy a planet, just like the death star in Star Wars. Ep. 3) How to Build A Force Field: Every star ship needs armor and a force field is the ultimate protection against asteroids, space debris and enemy attack. Dr. Michio Kaku reveals how to build a real life deflector shield using components from cutting-edge experiments and theoretical physics. At Boston's Museum of Science Kaku demonstrates the power of lightning while standing in a giant Faraday cage. At Columbia University he fires up a stellarator to show how magnetic fields can control plasma. At MIT he gets a look at some top secret carbon nano material. A multi layered force field to protect space craft from laser and projectile attack is very real possibility. Ep. 4) How To Build A Sci-fi Robot: Sci-fi is full of intelligent robots but so far humankind has built nothing like the amazing machines we see in the movies . Now Dr. Michio Kaku reveals how artificial intelligence will become reality. He meets STAIR, Stanford University's pattern recognition robot and sets some tasks for LAGR -a robot that New York University's Professor Yan LeCun has designed with the ability to learn. But the key to artificial intelligence lies in quantum computing and Kaku travels to MIT to meet Professor Seth Lloyd and find out how atomic computers will change the world. Ep. 5) How To Build a Starship: No sci-fi movie is complete without a starship travelling thousands of light-years through space. But so far man has been no further than the moon. Dr. Michio Ka
