Dr. Michio Kaku
"You simply cannot dismiss the possibility that some of these UFO sightings are actually sightings from some object created by an advanced civilization, a civilization far out in space, a civilization perhaps millions of years ahead of us in technology. You simply cannot discount that possibility." Dr.Kaku has been the biggest breath of fresh air to the UFO debate in years. A man not ready to make incredible claims of ET visitation or the validity of UFO sightings, Dr. Kaku isn't quick to rush to judgement and dismiss all UFO reports as fluff fairy tales either. Dr. Kaku's appearance on the ABC UFO special with Peter Jennings (Ed Note. Link is gone.) was simply amazing and he summed up the UFO situation in such a simple way, "When you look at the handful, the handful of cases that cannot be easily dismissed, this is worthy of scientific investigation. Maybe there's nothing there. However, on the off chance that there is something there that could literally change the course of human history, so I say, let the investigation begin." Indeed.-RMIII
Here is a more extensive biography. He is a professor of Physics at City University of New York. His most recent book is Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration Into the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel. He has been instrumental in promoting the Kardashev Scale, which is a method of categorizing civilizations into one of three types.
A Type 1 Civilization is capable of harnessing all of the power available on a single planet. A Type II Civilization can harness all of the power available from a single star. A Type III Civilization can harness all the available power of a single galaxy. On that scale Earth's 'civilization is at .718.
