    Hawking: Mankind will not survive without escaping earth

    I don't always agree with articles I post, but this one I do.

    Hawking: Humans Will Not Survive Another 1,000 Years ‘Without Escaping’ Earth

    LOS ANGELES (CBSDC/AP) — Stephen Hawking, who spent his career decoding the universe and even experienced weightlessness, is urging the continuation of space exploration — for humanity’s sake.

    The 71-year-old Hawking said he did not think humans would survive another 1,000 years “without escaping beyond our fragile planet.”

    The British cosmologist made the remarks Tuesday before an audience of doctors, nurses and employees at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he toured a stem cell laboratory that’s focused on trying to slow the progression of Lou Gehrig’s disease. . .

    . . .In 2009, President Barack Obama awarded Hawking the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his work.
    This is a pretty broad topic, but if mods think it goes better in the sparsely-attended science forum, so be it.

    Thoughts from everyone? Will we nuke our race to extinction? Will we bio-weapon ourselves to extinction? Will we wreck our environment to the extent humans can't live here? Will we create a Terminator scenario where our machines take over and eliminate us? Will there be an apocalypse of some kind?
    “A riot,” said Martin Luther King, “is the language of the unheard.”

    I don't know. Mick Foley has been thrown off the top of the cell, on explosives, on thumb tacks and has been beaten mercilessly time and time again. I think he'll be fine.

    Does this surprise anyone? I mean, maybe the time frame does, but I don't think it's a secret that humans won't survive forever on Earth

    It's really sad...but that's just how some people are. Not everyone has that same attitude...just too many so that it doesn't matter what anyone tries to do can make a difference

    No, it won't. It'll expand to just outside of Earth's orbit, but it won't go supernova.
