Summary Of The Book
Hyperspace: A Scientific Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, And The 10th Dimension is a book written by Michio Kaku, who is a renowned physicist. Through the course of this book, he explains his studies of higher dimensions, which he refers to as Hyperspace.
This book has been divided into four parts that contain 15 chapters in total. Some of the chapters in this book include Worlds Beyond Space And Time, Black Holes And Parallel Universes, To Build A Time Machine, Signals From The Tenth Dimension, The Secret Of Light: Vibrations In The Fifth Dimension, The Fate Of Universe, The Man Who "Saw" The Fourth Dimension, and Mathematicians And Mystics.
Kaku explains all four forces of the universe, which are the weak force, strong force, electromagnetism, and gravity. In Hyperspace: A Scientific Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, And The 10th Dimension, Kaku first throws light on the history of higher dimensions, along with the difficulty to bring together quantum mechanics and general relativity. Following that, he also deals with the theories pertaining to the 2-D world, also known as "Flatland".
