Stephen Hawking: ‘I Am Convinced That Humans Need to Leave Earth’

“We have given our planet the disastrous gift of climate change … When we we have reached similar crises there has usually been somewhere else to colonize … But there is no new world, no utopia around the corner,” he said. “We are running out of space, and the only places to go to are other worlds.”


“It is time to explore other solar systems,” Hawking continued. “Spreading out may be the only thing that saves us from ourselves. I am convinced that humans need to leave Earth.”

Space travel would “elevate humanity,” he noted
