Stephen Hawking Just Made A Doomsday Prediction About How Much Longer The World Will Last (And Why)
Stephen Hawking is almost unanimously considered to have the most brilliant mind of any man alive, and despite his debilitating ALS he’s had a long and successful career as a theoretical physicist and cosmologist. During a speech on Tuesday, Dr. Stephen Hawking made another doomsday prediction (below).
Typically, whenever we’re talking about Stephen Hawking here on BroBible it has to do with aliens. Back in September, I blogged this story about how Stephen Hawking basically said ‘humanity is fucked‘ after aliens finally find us. In January, Stephen Hawking made the claim that may not last the next 100 years and that it will be our own undoing if we don’t make it that far. Well, Dr. Hawking has just made another doomsday prediction and this time he’s prophesized the end of Planet Eart (via NYPost):
Stephen Hawking believes Earth’s days are numbered.
“I don’t think we will survive another 1,000 years without escaping beyond our fragile planet,” Hawking said Tuesday during a talk at Britain’s Oxford University Union.
The 74-year-old professor ended his speech by encouraging university students to “stay curious” and reminding them to “look up to the stars and not down at your feet.”
Really? The most brilliant mind in the world gathers together an audience and tells them to ‘look up to the stars’ on Tuesday night? The night of the largest Super Moon in 69 years when everyone on planet earth was standing in their backyard looking up at the moon. That’s the best we get from the smartest human being?
Don’t get me wrong, the idea that this planet will only last 1,000 more years is pretty fucked. If you take into consideration the average lifespan of humans is stretching further and further every year it’s not unreasonable to think that 1,000 years from now is only about 15 or so generations away. That’s pretty fucked.
