I'm currently a Freshman in college, Astrophysics major.
So i'm new to physics.
I see Michio Kaku on the news channels, and his videos all over youtube. Is he like the HEAD physicist of this era? Or is he just the most popular? OR is he just another regular physicists?

I'd say he's more of the head spokesman of the physics community.

Is he legit, why is he the spokesman?
Has he made any discoveries in physics?

Michio Kaku

He taught me last semester. He's the co-founder of string-field theory. I don't know about if he's the HEAD PHYSICST lol... but he's a really...REALLY good speaker. Although if people ask him questions which he thinks are dumb he's gonna single them out lol.

My guess to why he is all over is because not only is he a physicist, but also is able to speak in a way that a majority can understand or relate too. When most Physicist talk, I see a large part of the population turning away, sadly.

In other words, he is a good spokesman - pretty much what Pengwuino said.
