Very bad news for all of us: We will not survive another 1,000 years on Earth, says Stephen Hawking. One of the most brilliant minds warns that ‘we must continue to go into space for the future of humanity.’

‘Humans will not survive another 1,000 years on ‘fragile’ Earth.’

Professor Hawking at a talk at the Oxford University Union also insisted in space travel.

He said:

“I don’t think we will survive another 1,000 years without escaping our fragile planet. I therefore want to encourage public interest in space, and I have been getting my training in early.

I believe that life on Earth is at an ever-increasing risk of being wiped out by a disaster, such as a sudden nuclear war, a genetically engineered virus, or other dangers. I think the human race has no future if it doesn’t go to space.”
