Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku theorizes about a possible future in which digital versions of humans radiate to other planets.
He said the laws of physics clearly showed that humans would one day have to leave the earth.
"When the sun dies, we will go with it, unless, of course, we go the earth."
"So we need an insurance policy … otherwise we too will go the way of the dinosaurs.
"That's why we should become a multiplanete species," Dr. Kaku.
The Japanese, Professor of Theoretical Physics at New York City College, will be speaking in New York on October 31
. You hear ideas that sound as if they came from the vastness of science fiction.
Dr. Kaku, co-founder of String Field Theory, said Silicon Valley entrepreneurs are exploring ideas of digital immortality.
"It would digitize everything known about the human personality and the body, so if you die, your hologram A picture with all your memories would survive and become immortal."
"Once we have done that, we will apply all the information of our personality to a laser beam and shoot the laser beam into space.
"In a second … You're loaded into a mainframe computer on the moon that controls a mechanical avatar."
"This mechanical avatar looks like you, except that it's superhuman – like super or Superwoman. "
Physicists and engineers were also laying the ground for more conventional spaceships to transport people to other planets.
There was ample time to find ways to colonize another planet before the sun came out However, climate change, the proliferation of nuclear weapons, and the fight against bacteria could make the Earth inhospitable long before the sun dies.
Dr. Kaku said that planetary civilization phase, in which nations were united and peace He was expected for the most part on Earth in 100 to 200 years.
At present, people are in a "Wettlau f against time "to protect us from the emergence of a planetary civilization.
The Moon or Mars could prove to be hospitable planets that support human life whenever the earth becomes inhospitable, he said.
The US is planning to return to the Moon and an expedition to Mars "We will create a colony, a permanent, self-sustaining colony on Mars over the next 15-20 years."
"Then the process of terra begins Formation of Mars, which makes Mars in a Garden of Eden.
"The road to it is that satellites orbit Mars, which reflects the sunlight down to the polar ice caps and melts the icecaps so that liquid water flows freely back into the oceans and riverbeds of Mars."
Scraping this planet but moving to the next was not part of his vision.
"We are not saying that you should venture to Mars to leave the earth to be a garbage can and be polluted and have global warming."
"If you are an earthling, it is your duty to try To save the planet.
The universe could also cease to exist when temperatures drop to zero, Dr. Kaku said.
"When the time comes that we will face the death of the universe, perhaps we should go the universe.
