Abandon Earth


Famous scientist Steven Hawking is warning the human race that we better start colonizing in space soon in order to avoid extinction. Beam me up Scotty...

Still, we need to act and act fast, Hawking stated. "It will be difficult enough to avoid disaster in the next hundred years, let alone the next thousand or million. Our only chance of long-term survival is not to remain inward looking on planet Earth but to spread out into space. We have made remarkable progress in the last hundred years. But if we want to continue beyond the next hundred years, our future is in space."

Like Einstein before him, Hawking also firmly believes in time travel...

In May Hawking said he believed humans could travel millions of years into the future and repopulate their devastated planet. If spaceships are built that can fly faster than the speed of light, a day on board would be equivalent to a year on Earth. That's because -- according to Einstein -- as objects accelerate through space, time slows down around them.
“Time travel was once considered scientific heresy, and I used to avoid talking about it for fear of being labelled a crank," he said in Stephen Hawking's Universe.
"These days I’m not so cautious.”

So we have a guy with a better mathematical brain than the rest of us advocating time travel, aliens, and the colonization of space. 1.21 jiggawatts! What the hell is a jiggawatt?

Abandon Earth or Face Extinction, Stephen Hawking Warns -- Again
