Theoretical physicist and futurist Michio Kaku is one of the most known scientists of our age. And he lives most of his life in a very small office. In fact, that office is his entire life. Tons of books and things from his childhood are in there. Dozens of dozens of books lay around each corner stacked in a pile of knowledge. It is order in disorder and he likes it.
Michio Kaku (wiki page) was influenced by the scientists that were doing great things in helping Flash Gordon, a hero from the fifties. Right now he is part of known media shows, has a series called SciFi Science and talks about the Apophis asteroid, set to skim by Earth in 2029 and possibly hit in 2036.
