Stephen Hawking warns the world that our years on Earth is coming to an end and that humans should seek another planet.
Hawking is giving humans two options; whether to move to Mars or die as life on planet Earth cease to continue.
Last year, hawking claimed that humans have 1000 years left on Earth. However, Hawking now reconsidered that theory in a new documentary. He now says that we only have 100 years left.
This new claim has many reasons such as overpopulation, diseases as well as climate change and artificial intelligence.
To get ready for such an assumption, BBC has led mission called Expedition New Earth. This expedition aims to discover any technological and scientific developments so that we can live in another planet.
It will prove “Hawking’s ambition isn’t as fantastical as it sounds—that science fact is closer to science fiction than we ever thought,” the BBC stated.
On the one hand, Elon Musk, founder and CEO of SpaceX, is considering sending humans to Mars during the next decade.
On the other hand, people such as Eric Mack, a columnist, rejects Hawking’s idea completely. Mack doesn’t believe that any other place in our solar system will be suitable, except for Earth.
Mack explains that staying on Earth and trying to improve our lives is a way better choice than moving to a whole other planet and start a brand new life while accommodating on the new planet.
“Just cleaning up our own mess and starting over by rising from the rubble seems more practical and more affordable than figuring out how to grow food or survive radiation poisoning on Mars” Mack writes. “Yet somehow, the grass is always greener for some people, even when it’s on a dead Red Planet.”
