British physicist Stephen Hawking says human life will not survive another 1,000 years on planet Earth. As a guest speaker at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Hawking said future exploration of space is needed if mankind wants to survive. He called Earth a fragile planet and NASA’s role in finding a habitable planet is crucial.

The problem is the budget for planetary exploration has been cut by $300 million this year.  While at Cedar-Sinai, Hawking toured the stem cell lab which is dedicated to trying to slow the process of Lou Gehrig’s disease, which has suffered with for 50 years. While he has the disease, he does feel lucky, most people only survive a dozen years or so but he’s lived with it for 50. Some call Hawking’s predictions about human life on Earth science; others call it speculation, either way it seems like a gloomy prediction for life on Earth.
