Humanity must travel to space or die out: Stephen Hawking

Theoretical physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking warns that if the human race does not leave the planet and start to live in space, humanity will die out.

The renowned British scientist made the comments while giving a holographic a speech at the Sydney Opera House in Australia, the Independent reported on Monday.

“We must continue to go into space for the future of humanity,” Hawking said, “I don’t think we will survive another 1,000 years without escaping beyond our fragile planet.”

The eminent scientist used holographic technology to give the speech from his office in Cambridge, England.

“Although I would love to be there in person,” he said during his opening speech to the audience, “the idea of being the first person to appear as a hologram at the stage at the Opera House was too good an offer to refuse.”

“Be curious, and however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up,” he added.

Hawking has repeatedly warned the human race over the danger it is placing itself by progressing the rise of artificial intelligence and aggression.

The only way to ensure the continuity of the human race is to colonize other planets, the scientist noted back in February.

At the end of his holographic speech, Hawkins called on the audience to “look at up at the stars and not down at your feet”.

    Then we can start making more nuclear reactors cause we are so smart!
    Remember…your not a human, your only in its body, like a space suit!
    Maybe we should try not to wipe out the entire universe for money!

    A family of Black Bears – a mom and three cute cubs chased a herd of the worst planetical animal human on a bridge in Yellowstone National Park, in the U.S. state of Wyoming. With the help of three cute cubs the bear mom was quite successful to claim their territory for peaceful living over the worst planetical animal messing around whole universe. And, Stephen Hawking wants Humanity must travel to space, even no other animal likes the worst planetical animal human even on this planet. LoL!
