Hawking Earth doomed, Physicist Stephen Hawking believes that Earth is doomed and actually won’t even survive the next millennium “without escaping beyond our fragile planet” and furthering space exploration. As reported by the Epoch Times on Friday, April 12, 2013, Hawking believes that space exploration needs to be further explored in order for humanity to survive.
The 71-year-old Hawking believes that “without escaping beyond our fragile planet,” the human race won’t survive another 1,000 years.
His comments came this past week at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center before an audience of nurses, doctors, and other employees. Hawking toured a stem cell laboratory that is focused on attempting to slow down the progression of Lou Gehrig’s disease.

While Hawking, who was diagnosed with the disease 50 years ago, toured that facility; he wanted everyone to know that continuing on in life is the way to live.
“If you understand how the universe operates, you control it in a way,” he said.
While surviving as long as he has with Lou Gehrig’s disease is unusual, Hawking has a dire warning for everyone. Hawking truly believes that Earth is doomed without further exploration in space and urges that changes be made.
