Stephen Hawking, the world’s most renowned physicist and cosmologist on Tuesday talked about certain horrifying aspects of Earth during his lecture at Cedars-Sinai Regenerative Medicine Institute, Los Angeles. He once again warned his fellow space researchers and others to find out a way to live in space as our extinction is on the horizon.

Stephen-HawkingHawking discussed how he himself and researchers at Cedars-Sinai are getting a closer idea about stem cell to develop treatments for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, a disease that has jammed Hawking on a wheelchair from the last 50 years. Sources say that Stephen was diagnosed with this disease in 1963 and since then he has been bound to his chair and finding out a way to get this disease fixed.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Stephen Hawking said “We must continue to go into space for humanity; we won’t survive another 1,000 years without escaping our fragile planet.”

Many a time in previous years, Hawking has advised people and scientists who have been involved in a space exploration project to begin the search of a new planet for human kind. In 2006 in one of his official interview he said, “space is the place to live”. In other words, based on the research and scientific experiences Hawking had, he’s confident enough that for long term survival – us Earthlings do not have to remain prowling on this planet only but also to ensure the continued existence of our species by locating other celestial bodies within a space which can possibly be habitable.

Stephen Hawking’s predictions during his distinguished career of scientific research have been pretty plausible. And he has been predicting about Earth’s eventual extinction, however, we are yet to see another planet in the universe with the existence of life on it.
