Did you save the receipt to your new survival bunker? Because Stephen Hawking has just taken prepping to a while new level.
In fact, his level just surpassed bug-out-bag and went straight past the moon.
In front of an audience of hundreds attending the first in a series of BBC Reith Lectures, Steven Hawking warned about the various “things that could go wrong” as a result of the advancements in science and technology – things like “nuclear war, global warming, and genetically-modified viruses”
He asserted that humanity’s only hope is colonization of other planets.
“Although the chance of a disaster to planet Earth in a given year might be quite low, it adds up over time, and becomes a near certainty in the next thousand or ten thousand years. By that time, we should have spread out into space, and to other stars, so a disaster on Earth would not mean the end of the human race. However, 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.”
