During his talk at the Oxford University Union, a renowned theoretical physicist Professor Stephen Hawking recently reveals that humans' time on Earth will soon come to an end. He believes that the human race will not be able to survive 1,000 years more on what he described as "fragile" Earth. Hawking claims that it is just but essential for humans to continue exploring the possibilities on space for the sake of humanity's future.
Stephen Hawking And His Proposition
According to Daily Mail, at the time of his talk, Professor Hawking was found to have given an hour discussion of the mayhem history of man's understanding with regards to the origin of the universe from its primordial creation myths up to the most advanced stage of development predictions made by 'M-theory'. Moreover, Hawking has also claimed that most of the current advances in cosmology have been achieved from space where there are uninterrupted views of our Universe but we must also continue to go into space for the future of humanity.
Furthermore, in one of his statements released by RT news, the 74-year-old physicist has highly emphasized that it is also one of his goals to map the position of millions of galaxies with the help of supercomputers like Cosmos. That way, he claims that humanity will better understand our place in the universe. It was found that Cosmos is one of the world's largest shared-memory Supercomputers, located in the Stephen Hawking Centre for Theoretical Cosmology (CTC) at Cambridge University.
Meanwhile, Professor Hawking has also claimed that if the proposal is proven to be true, considering that we live in a flat planet, it is more likely seen to eliminate the time having a beginning, in a similar way that we get rid of the problem of the edge of the Earth.
