Canada – Famed theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking recently proposed that the fate of the human race may lie in space. As stated on the Big Think website, Hawking suggested that human beings faced extinction on Earth and must find another place of habitation for their survival.
Hawking is quoted in the article as stating of his theory, “I believe that the long-term future of the human race must be in space… It will be difficult enough to avoid disaster on planet Earth in the next hundred years, let alone the next thousand, or million. The human race shouldn’t have all its eggs in one basket, or on one planet. Let’s hope we can avoid dropping the basket until we have spread the load.”
