The Future of Humanity
Hawking was vocal in his belief that humanity would meet its demise at some point in the relatively near future, putting an expiration date on the human race.
“Although the chance of a disaster on planet Earth in a given year may be quite low, it adds up over time, becoming a near certainty in the next,” Hawking said in the BBC documentary Stephen Hawking: Expedition New Earth.
“We must continue to go into space for the future of humanity,” he also said. “I don’t think we will survive another 1,000 years without escaping beyond our fragile planet.”
