The Human Race Is Doomed, Unless…

We all know the Earth has an expiration date.

Sooner or later, our sun will die, and when that day comes, one of several things will occur; it could go supernova and destroy us all, it could become a Red Giant and swallow the earth with it, etc.

Whatever the case, science tells us it’s bound to happen. Unfortunately, we’ve got bigger and sooner problems.

British physicist Stephen Hawking, famous for his theories on time travel, wormholes, the ‘Big Bang’, and others, has come out with a recent statement informing us that we’ve got less than a millennia to get our act together, or the entire human race will perish for good.

“We must continue to go into space for humanity. If you understand how the universe operates, you control it in a way. We won’t survive another 1,000 years without escaping our fragile planet.”

This Hawking said at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. His theory is one that a growing number of scientists have concluded. It’s also simple mathematics.

Our world’s population is increasing at an almost alarming rate. Nothing short of truly dystopian birth control measures can sate the inevitable. But that’s OK.

We’ve begun exploring new worlds, and are constantly seeking out new planets, with several Earth-like spheres in the relative neighborhood of our solar system. By 2050, rocket engines may be replaced by warp drives, or similarly fast methods of transportation. This will allow us to move across interstellar space like never before.

As we’ve stated in previous articles, colonizing other worlds is a positive thing for the Earth. It will reduce our strain on its resources, and will ultimately prevent its destruction from ravenous plundering.

Looking to the stars is our only hope from extinction, which, as Prof. Hawking would have us believe, is closer to reality than we may realize. Here’s hoping we can prove him wrong.
