Physicist Michio Kaku writes about antimatter — it's what powered spaceships in "Star Trek" — in his new book, Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration Into the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel (Doubleday, 352 pages, 26.95).

"A professor at the City University of New York, Kaku appears to have read every major tract by Albert Einstein, Werner Heisenberg and Kurt Godel, plus a mountain of comic books and science fiction novels," writes Jeffrey Tannenbaum in a review for Bloomberg News. "His own book assesses whether phasers, teleportation and other technologies used by Flash Gordon and Captain Kirk could really be developed."

Because of his ability to explain complex scientific issues in easy-to-understand terms, Kaku has created a following on TV news shows, documentaries and radio programs, talking about the same subjects he covers in the new book.
