He’s a physics rock star.

Dr. Michio Kaku will be the featured speaker at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium’s annual benefit at March 30 at The Breakers.

Kaku believes that one day we’ll be able to upload the human brain to a computer, neuron for neuron, project thoughts and emotions around the world on a “brain-net,” take a “smart pill” to enhance cognition, send our consciousness across the universe, and push the very limits of immortality.

No doubt he’ll touch on a few of those ideas during the event, titled The Future of the Mind: An Evening with Michio Kaku and the Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind.

“[Dr. Kaku] is a perfect fit for our mission to ‘open every mind to science’ with his work to unlock the secrets of our brain’s potential,” says Lew Crampton, president and CEO of the Science Center. “The timing is perfect, as we begin developing our newest permanent exhibit, A Journey Through the Human Brain. This will be the most advanced exhibition in the world on the topic of brain science.”

Tickets for the benefit are $500, or $5,000 for a table of 10. For more information, visit the Science Center website.
