Renowned scientist and astrophysicist Stephen Hawking said that mankind should leave the earth in 100 years. The highly revered genius is back on BBC’s new season Tomorrow’s World for which he has made a new documentary, Expedition New Earth in which he has expressed his views.
He was talking about climate change, over population, epidemics and asteroid strikes which may leave the world, a place not fit to live. The news is a shocker since it is expected that the Earth would sustain the man kind for few 100 years if not 1000.
He will travel across the globe along with his student Christophe Galfard to find out as to how humans could live in the outer space. Prof Brian Cox, a TV Presenter and an Astrophysicist himself is curating the series.
BBC has joined with Royal Society, Open University, London’s Science Museum and the Wellcome Trust to ignite the brightest minds. Its aim is also t find the greatest invention in Britain by asking the public to vote for it.
“We’ve come together behind a simple, and very bold ambition – to equip all of us with the knowledge and understanding we need to make sense of our lives and the future,” said Tony Hall, director-general of the BBC.
