Stephen Hawking, legendary astrophysicist, stated at a news conference on Thursday that space is mankind’s only chance for a viable future due to Earth’s imminent destruction. He said that life on Earth is at the ever-increasing risk of being wiped out by a disaster, such as sudden global warming, nuclear war, a genetically engineered virus or other dangers we have not yet thought of. He added that humans could have a permanent base on the moon in 20 years and a colony on Mars in the next 40 years. However, he conceded that we won’t find anywhere as nice as Earth unless we go to another star system.
