Sci Fi Science was a TV show that aired on the Science Channel in 2009. The show was hosted by physicist Michio Kaku and focused on the scientific principles behind some of the most iconic technologies and gadgets from science fiction films and television shows. Each episode of Sci Fi Science explored a different scientific concept related to a popular sci-fi concept. For example, the first episode tackled the idea of teleportation, examining the theoretical principles behind the concept and exploring how it might be possible to achieve teleportation in the real world.

Other episodes dealt with topics such as time travel, force fields, and invisibility. The show also featured various guests, including scientists, engineers, and experts in various fields, who shared their knowledge and insights into the topics being discussed.

One notable feature of the show was the use of computer-generated imagery (CGI) to illustrate the scientific principles being discussed. For example, in the episode on force fields, the show used CGI to demonstrate how force fields could be generated and how they might be used to protect people and machinery.

Another aspect of the show that set it apart was the hands-on approach that Kaku took to the topics. In many episodes, he demonstrated real-life experiments to illustrate the principles being discussed. For example, in an episode on time travel, Kaku built a time machine using a laser and two large mirrors, demonstrating the concept of time dilation and the possibility of time travel.

Overall, Sci Fi Science was a fun and engaging show that bridged the gap between science fiction and real-world science. By exploring the scientific concepts behind some of the most iconic sci-fi gadgets and technologies, the show helped viewers better understand the real-world principles that underlie many aspects of our technological world.

Sci Fi Science is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (24 episodes). The series first aired on December 1, 2009.
