Our planet will become a ball of fire, and mankind will disappear in less than 600 years. It’s the prediction of astrophysicist Stephen Hawking.
He warned that the human race is in great danger of disappearing completely until 2600, so people must have the courage to go where they have never reached if they want the species to survive for another million years.
In a video show at Tencent WE Summit in Beijing, Hawking appealed to businessmen to financially support travel plans outside our solar system to the nearest star in the hope that a planet would be discovered allows life, acoording to nypost.com.
Alpha Centauri is one of the closest solar systems, four light-years away. Scientists believe there would be two exoplanets that could sustain life, as Terra does.
