Type II, civilisation - According to Kardashev, a type two civilisation has evolved from a type one level and is able to obtain energy from its sun(s) efficiently, with an estimated output of a billion trillion ergs per second. Such a civilisation would have explored its own solar system and be able to reach neighbouring stars. According to Kaku, such a civilisation would be dedicated to the exploration of its own galaxy, probably suing some sort of Von Neumann machine, implying the widespread use of self-repairing, self-reproducing robots capable of exploring different star systems without the use of FTL technologies, but at very high speeds. A type two civilisation would master the use of antimatter, nanotechnology and artificial life.
