The famous physicist, whose life was traced in the biopic "A wonderful history of time", spoke again about the future of man on a planet that has become too fragile, during a debate organized by Oxford Union University , the 14 last November.
S74-year-old tephen Hawking is today one of the most famous physicists in the world, not only for his extraordinary medical history, but also for his work on mysterious black holes. According to the scientist, humanity faces great challenges whose stakes are nothing other than its own survival. Overpopulation and depletion of resources would inevitably lead to human destruction.
According to him, our attitude could still make the difference, if we manage to break out of individualism and isolationism. He declared to Guardian this summer :
“We're going to be forced to adapt, rethink, change the basic assumptions about how we define wealth and possessions. "
But it is towards space that Stephen Hawking bases its hopes for humanity.
“I don't think we'll survive 1000 more years if we don't flee our fragile planet. "
During his speech, the physicist encouraged the audience to "look at the stars and not at our feet", thus encouraging young researchers to continue the exciting conquest of space, with the aim of ensuring the survival of humanity.
We do not know what the future of man will be in 1000 years, but we agree with Stephen Hawking to raise his head, to look to the stars and beyond to find help in the one who created the universe and who supports everything with his word.
"It is you, Lord, you alone, who made the heavens, the heavens of the heavens, and all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that they contain. You give life to all these things, and the host of heaven bow down to you. "
Nehemiah 9: 6
