Stephen Hawking: humanity has only 100 years to leave Earth
Professor Stephen Hawking, the world-renowned astrophysicist and cosmologist, has once again presented his grim visions for humanity. According to him, we have only 100 years to leave Earth – otherwise we face annihilation.
Hawking has been suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis for years, które led to paralysis of almost his entire body. He was diagnosed with the disease at the age of 21. Doctors gave him no chance of living to his 25th birthday. He is now 75 years old. However, this does not prevent him from taking an active part in the public debate on the condition of humanity.
According to Hawking, by the end of this century, humanity must become a multiplanetary species in order to survive. The astrophysicist admitted that humanity’s days on Earth are numbered due to climate change, epidemics, overpopulation or the threat from asteroids.
Hawking has previously repeatedly mówished that the only salvation for humanity is the colonization of other planets. In November last year, during a lecture at Oxford University, the scientist admitted that humanity will not survive another 1,000 years on our planet. He appears to have revised his views and significantly skróhe made his predictions.
Now renowned physicist Stephen Hawking believes that we have only 100 years to leave our planet. His visions of doom have appeared in the announcement of a new BBC television program. The station plans to air a documentary in June „New Earth expedition”, Where Hawking, along with other scientists, will be presenting the latest developments in science, whichóre may contribute to faster colonization of our space environment.
„New Earth expedition” is to be broadcast as part of a long-running popular science series „Tomorrow's Word”, której last episode aired on the BBC in 2003. The first episode of the program was broadcast in 1965 and aired continuously for 38 years. In the program, Professor Hawking, along with his former student, Christophen Galfard, will be subróchew around the world to find out how humans in the future can explore space and settle other planets.
