Stephen Hawking: Find a new planet to settle with 1,000 years or we're doomed Empty Stephen Hawking: Find a new planet to settle with 1,000 years or we're doomed

Science celebrity Stephen Hawking says the only way humankind can escape mass extinction is to find another planet.

And the clock is ticking.

During a speech Tuesday at Britain’s Oxford University Union, Hawking detailed the history of man’s understanding of the universe and reiterated that the future of humankind lies in space, the Daily Express reported.

“We must also continue to go into space for the future of humanity,” he said. “I don’t think we will survive another 1000 years without escaping beyond our fragile planet.”

This isn’t the first time the theoretical physicist has suggested that humankind must leave Earth in order to survive.

In January, during a BBC Reith lecture, Hawking said humankind is inching closer to demise, and it’s our fault.

He said it’s inevitable that a disaster, possibly of our making, will strike the planet.

"By that time we should have spread out into space, and to other stars, so a disaster on Earth would not mean the end of the human race,” he said during the BBC lecture.

Tom says its all codswallop. Climate change doesn't exist .
He must be right and Hawking must be be wrong because Toms a genius. He told us that.
So it must be true that he is much more cleverer than the cleverest scientist currently alive on earth

THINK how much better of Earth would be,  without Mankind abusing it constantly...

Won't worry me if humanity goes extinct within a thousand years..

Even if it only takes a few hundred years.

I won't be around to see it..         cyclops

1. I haven't commented on this thread or anywhere else on the article posted on op...

2. Don't see any mention of 'climate change' in op...

3. Anyone can make a prediction of the future... it can't be proved right until it actually happens... and as I haven't made any prediction then I can't be wrong... and as you say Hawking has only made a speculative 1000 year prediction ... it can't be proved right until it has actually happened...
