Other than Hawking, there is no doubt that Kaku is one of the best physicists in the world today.

Some great links and discussions in here if you guys want to look through. Got busy and stopped updating it, kind of forgot about it until now. Always worth a read though

Nobody can, because these are scales that we just don't deal with in everyday life.

Light travels at nearly 300,000km/second. It can whip around the earth 7 times a second, and yet it takes a second and a half for the light from the Moon to reach us. It takes 8 minutes to reach us from the Sun. It takes ~45 minutes for the light to reach us from Jupiter. It takes over 5 hours for light to reach us from Pluto.

And yet, it takes 4.2 years to reach us from the nearest star. 132,451,200 light seconds away.

All of this is going down at nearly 300,000km/second.

It's absolutely mind blowing.
