Dr. Michio Kaku recently consolidated his position as Americas most visible physicist by acting as the voice of the science community to major news outlets in the wake of Japans major earthquake and the recent Fukushima nuclear crisis. Dr. Kaku is one of those rare and prized few
who possesses both the hard science chops (he built an atom smasher in his garage for a high school science fair and is a co-founder of string theory) and the ability to reduce quantum physics and space time to laymans terms.
