Physicist Stephen Hawking has cautioned humankind that we perhaps only have about 1,000 years left on our planet Earth, and the only thing that could save us from assured elimination is setting up societies somewhere else in the Solar System. 

"We must continue to go into space for the future of humankind, Stephen Hawking said in a lecture at the ‘University of Cambridge’.  "I do not think we will live another 1,000 years without escaping beyond our fragile planet Earth."

The destiny of humankind seems to have been considering heavily on Hawking of late, he is also recently warned that AI (Artificial intelligence) will be either the worst, or the best, thing ever to happen to humankind". 

Given that humans are disposed to making the same errors over and over again, even though we are infatuated with our own past, history and should know better, Hawking defendants that "powerful independent weapons” could have serious penalties for humankind. 

Heather Saul from The Independent reports, Hawking has predicted  that self-sustaining human camps on Mars are not going to be a feasible option for another 100 years or so, which means we require to be "very careful" in the upcoming decades. Without even captivating into account the possibly shocking results of climate change, global epidemics brought on by antibiotic battle, and nuclear competences of combatant nations, we could soon be scuffling with the kinds of opponents we are not even so close to knowing that how to deal with this.
Late last year, Hawking added his name to a alliance of more than 20,000 experts and  researchers, including Elon Musk, Noam Chomsky and Steve Wozniak, calling for a ban on anyone emerging self-regulating weapons that can fire on targets without humanoid interference. As the forefathers of OpenAI, Musk’s new research initiative devoted to the ethics of artificial intelligence (AI), said last year, our robots are perfectly obedient now, but what happens when we remove one too many limitations?

What occurs when you make them so faultless, they are just like humans, but much better, just like we have always desired? The founders said "AI arrangements today have extraordinary but narrow competences,". "It appears that we will keep carving away at their restraints, and in the dangerous case they will reach human presentation on almost every intelligent task. It is hard to sound how much human level AI could advantage society, and it is similarly hard to visualize how much it could cause destruction society if built or used inaccurately."
And that is not even the half part of it. Imagine we are dealing with boisterous robots that are so much stronger and so much smarter than us, and suddenly, we get the declaration, aliens have picked up on the signals we have been attacking out into the Universe and made the contract. Great news, right, Well think about it for a minute. In the coming decades, Earth and humankind is not going to look so crash hot. We will be trying to alleviate the results of climate change, which means our coasts will be disappearing, we will be running out of land to grow crops, and anything eatable in the sea is perhaps being cooked by the speedily rising temperatures.

If the aliens are violent, they will see a debilitated enemy with a comfortable planet that is ripe for the taking. And even if they are non-aggressive, we humans surely are, so we will perhaps try to get a share of what they have got, and excited for alien wars. 

Hawking says in his new online film, ‘Stephen Hawking’s Favorite Places’, "I am more influenced than ever that we are not alone," but if the aliens are finding us, "they will be massively more dominant and may not see us as any more appreciated than we see bacteria".

Clearly, we necessity a backup plan, which is why Hawking's 1,000-year time limit to devastation comes with a caution, we might be able to survive our errors if we have somewhere else in the Solar System to abandon ourselves to. That all might sound pretty terrible, but Hawking says we still have a whole lot to feel hopeful about, labeling 2016 as a "magnificent time to be alive and doing research into the theoretical physics". 

While John Oliver might disagree that there is anything good about 2016 at all, Hawking says we have to "Remember to look up at the stars and not look down at your feet." "Try to make sagacity of what you see curiosity about what makes the ‘Universe’ to exist. Be inquisitive," he told students at the ‘Cambridge lecture’. "However problematic life may seem, there is always something you can do and be successful at. It matters that you do not just give up."
