Hawking: Human race is doomed if we do not colonise the Moon and Mars..dude is on crack!

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2017/06/20/human-race-doomed-do-not-colonise-moon-mars-says-stephen-hawking/

The human race must start leaving Earth within 30 years to avoid being wiped out by over-population and climate change, Professor Stephen Hawking has warned.

Making an impassioned speech at the Starmus science festival in Trondheim, Norway, the astrophysicist said it was crucial to establish colonies on Mars and the Moon, and take a Noah’s Ark of plants, animals, fungi and insects, to start creating a new world.

Prof Hawking said it was only a matter of time before the Earth as we know it is destroyed by an asteroid strike, soaring temperatures or over-population.

He said that becoming a ‘cosmic sloth’ was not an option because ‘the threats are too big and too numerous.’

“I am convinced that humans need to leave earth. The Earth is becoming too small for us, our physical resources are being drained at an alarming rate.”

“We have given our planet the disastrous gift of climate change, rising temperatures, the reducing of polar ice caps , deforestation and decimation of animal species.

“When we have reached similar crisis in or history there has usually been somewhere else to colonise. Columbus did it in 1492 when he discovered the new world. But now there is no new world. No Eutopia around the corner. We are running out of space and the only places to go to are other worlds.”

Prof Hawking told the audience that the Earth would eventually be hit by a devastating asteroid strike.

“This is not science fiction it is guaranteed by the laws of physics and probability,” he said. “To stay risks being annihilated.

“Spreading out into space will completely change the future of humanity. It  may also determine whether we have any future at all.

“Wherever we go we will need to build a civilisation, we will need to take the practical means of establishing a whole new ecosystem the will survive in an environment that know very little about and we will need to consider transporting several thousands of people, animals, plants, fungi, bacteria and insects.”

Prof Hawking said the Moon and Mars were the best sites to begin the first colonies, stating that a lunar base could be established within 30 years and a Martian outpost within 50. But he also suggested leaving the Solar System and venturing to our nearest star system, Alpha Centauri, where scientists believe there exists a habitable planet known as Proxima B.

The professor said nuclear fusion-powered ships propelled by light, Star Trek-style matter-antimatter reactors, or “some completely new form of energy” could allow humans to travel light years.

A small first step was already being taken by Russian billionaire Yuri Milner’s Breakthrough Start Shot project, said Prof Hawking.

This envisages sending a fleet of tiny “nanocraft” carrying light sails on a four light-year journey to Alpha Centauri, the nearest star system to Earth.

The camera-equipped miniature probes, would be sent on their way by tens of gigawatts of focused power from an array of lasers, reaching their destination in about 20 years.

“If we succeed we will send a probe to Alpha Centauri within the lifetime of some of you alive today,” he said.

“It is clear we are entering a new space age. We are standing at the threshold of a new era. Human colonisation and other planets is no longer science fiction, it can be science fact.

“The human race has existed a separate species for about two million years. Civilization became about 10,000 years ago and the rate of development has been steadily increasing, If humanity is to continue for another million years it relies on boldly going where noone has gone before. I hope for the best. I have to. We have no other option.”

the old chestnuts..but not nuclear wars or super-germs?

why do we even listen to this guy?

  1. I actually think the earth is a great place to live – plenty of water , food , air to breathe even, everything we need – in fact one would think only a kind God could have designed all this . AND its not over populated at all or over heating.
    Whereas the temp of the moon and other planets would be crazy to live with and with no air – impossible.
    Hawking is insane – maybe we should send him “out there” to report back
    how easy it would be to colonise outer space – a Godless man will believe
    in anything .
    “They” the globalists put these words in their living psyop – Stephen who might not even know . Weep that the sheep will believe this Bullshine .

  2. What is amazing is the nonChristian still had to source God’s written Word to make a basis for his thought, i.e. Noah’s ark. How ironic.

  3. I think ‘they’ should go first, after all they are the ‘elite’ of the world, and then they can always CALL HOME and let us know how that worked out for them!

    • send hawkings to mars..one way ticket..

      • how can we be sure that hawking really says/thinks what they say he claims? he is a great brand to be benefitted from for the Big Agenda…like other ASSETS: BrAngelina, Di Caprio etc, etc…

        • Some say the Hawking you see now is not the original since his disease would have killed him long ago – the photo comparisons are interesting .

    • Think what a lovely place earth would be without satan’s troops .
      Which is coming anyway .

  4. we must colonise mars …and yet it is a crime just to look away from somebody..?

    Students who avoid making eye contact with their peers could be guilty of racism, according to Oxford University’s latest guidance.

    The university’s Equality and Diversity Unit has advised students that “not speaking directly to people” could be deemed a “racial microaggression” which can lead to “mental ill-health”.

    Other examples of “everyday racism” include asking someone where they are “originally” from, students were told.

    Oxford University’s Equality and Diversity Unit explains in its Trinity term newsletter that “some people who do these things may be entirely well-meaning, and would be mortified to realise that they had caused offence.
