According to World renowned Astro-Physicist Stephen Hawking believes that this century would be real ‘Space Age’ and that living on the Moon and Planet Mars would become possible in the not too distant future.
The professor believes that the lack of living space on Earth would ‘incentivize’ space exploration once again, as it had in the Cold War era.
“Our planet is an old world, threatened with an ever-expanding population and finite resources. We must anticipate these threats and have a plan B. If our species is to survive the next hundred years, let alone a thousand, it is imperative we voyage out into the blackness of space to colonise new worlds across the cosmos.”, Professor Hawking commented during the ‘Live from Space’ program.
The New Space Age, according to Professor Hawking, will see man living on the Moon within the next 50 years and living on Planet Mars before 2100.
