Theoretical physicist Dr. Michio Kaku spoke at the University of Alaska Anchorage ANSEP building Friday in Anchorage.

Kaku was the keynote speaker at the 23rd annual celebration of the Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program.

Kaku is a world-renowned physicist, New York Times best-selling author and the co-founder of string field theory. String theory strives to reconcile Albert Einstein's theory of relativity and quantum physics, following Einstein's quest for a "theory of everything."

The ANSEP program's aim is to increase the number of Native students in science and engineering.
