Earth Stephen Hawking Warns >'Leaving Earth is Our Only Hope'

Stephen Hawking Says It is a 'Near Certainty' Technology Will Threaten Humanity Within 10,000 Years:
>> Physicist Warns That Leaving Earth is Our Only Hope


  • Scientist says threats include nuclear war, global warming and GM viruses
  • 'We will not establish self-sustaining colonies in space for at least the next hundred years, so we have to be very careful in this period,' Hawking said
  • He has previously said AI could become powerful enough to end humanity
Daily Mail UK, 19 January 2016


It is a 'near certainty' that a major technological disaster will threaten humanity in the next 1,000 to 10,000 years.


This is according to physicist Stephen Hawking who claims science will likely bring about 'new ways things can go wrong' for human survival.

But the University of Cambridge professor added that a disaster on Earth will not spell the end of humanity as long as humans find a way to spread out into space.

Hawking made the comments while recording the BBC's annual Reith Lectures on January 7.

The lecture explore research into black holes, and his warning was made during questions fielded by audience members.

When asked how the world will end, Hawking said that increasingly, most of the threats humanity faces come from progress in technology.

The scientist, who turned 74 this month, says they include nuclear war, catastrophic global warming and genetically engineered viruses.

'We are not going to stop making progress, or reverse it, so we must recognise the dangers and control them,' he said, speaking to Radio Times ahead of the lecture.

To get away from these threats, humankind will have to colonise other planets, which Hawking believes will take more than a century.

'We will not establish self-sustaining colonies in space for at least the next hundred years, so we have to be very careful in this period,' Hawking said.

He has previously singled out the risk of artificial intelligence (AI) becoming powerful enough to cause the downfall of humanity.


In July, Professor Hawking and Tesla founder Elon Musk led 1,000 robotics experts in an open letter warning that 'Autonomous weapons will become the Kalashnikovs of tomorrow'


And the physicist claims that if AI doesn't conquer humanity, an advanced alien civilisation may do so instead.

'If aliens visit us, the outcome could be much like when Columbus landed in America, which didn't turn out well for the Native Americans,' Professor Hawking said in an interview last year.

THE $100 MILLION HUNT FOR ALIEN LIFE BACKED BY STEPHEN HAWKING

A search for intelligent alien life using two of the world's most powerful telescopes has been launched by leading scientists including Professor Stephen Hawking.

The telescopes will scour one million of the closest stars to Earth for faint signals thrown out into space by intelligent life beyond our own world.

Scientists taking part in the $100 million (64 million) initiative will also scan the very centre of our galaxy along with 100 of the closest galaxies for low power radio transmissions.

In a second initiative, an international competition will be held to generate messages representing humanity and planet Earth, which may one day be sent to alien civilisations.

The new search for intelligent life, which promises to cover 10 times more of the sky than previous attempts, is backed by Russian billionaire entrepreneur Yuri Milner, who set up the Breakthrough Prize for scientific endeavours.

The attempt to find signs of alien life, which has been named the;

Breakthrough Listen Initiative,


will draw on the expertise of leading scientists, physicists and astronomers.

Professor Hawking, who has in the past said there is certainly alien life out there but has warned humanity against trying to contact them, was among those to back the project.


'Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach,' Hawking told El Pais.

Hawking is currently heading up a major search for intelligent alien life using two of the world's most powerful telescopes.

'To my mathematical brain, the numbers alone make thinking about aliens perfectly rational,' said Hawking.'

When asked for advice for young scientists during the latest lecture, Hawking said they should retain a sense of wonder about 'our vast and complex' universe.





Last year, Professor Hawking and Tesla founder Elon Musk led 1,000 robotics experts in an open letter warning that 'Autonomous weapons will become the Kalashnikovs of tomorrow'. The scenario has been likened to the film The Terminator


'From my own perspective, it has been a glorious time to be alive and doing research in theoretical physics.
'There is nothing like the Eureka moment of discovering something that no one knew before.'

But he also said that future generations of scientists need to help the wider public understand exactly how technology is transforming the world.

'It's important to ensure that these changes are heading in the right directions,' he said.
'In a democratic society, this means that everyone needs to have a basic understanding of science to make informed decisions about the future.

'So communicate plainly what you are trying to do in science, and who knows, you might even end up understanding it yourself.'

Hawking's Reith Lecture will be broadcast on 26 January and 2 February on BBC Radio 4.
