Hawking: Humans, Get Your Ass to Space

Renowned physicist and author Stephen Hawking thinks we are wasting our opportunity to create a human colony away from Earth. He thinks we’re risking the destruction of the human race from “sudden global warming, nuclear war, a genetically engineered virus or other dangers we have not yet thought of.”
