At the recent BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Awards in London, England, cosmologist Stephen Hawking said, “The human failing I would most like to correct is ‘aggression.’ It may have had survival advantage in caveman days, to get more food, territory or partner with whom to reproduce, but now it threatens to destroy us all.” He warns that major nuclear war could be the end of civilization, possibly humankind.
As both a physicist and an optimist, Dr. Michio Kaku sees the very same scenario as motivation for ingenuity and opportunity. Specifically, using science, technology, and strides in space exploration to strengthen humanity’s presence (and its chances) to survive and even prosper beyond our earthly limits, out in space — to become, as he puts it, a “2 Planet Species.”
Dr. Kaku returns again on MSNBC’s ‘The Ed Show’ to discuss Hawking‘s remarks as he presents his own insights along with solutions that could be like an “insurance policy” for the human race. WATCH NOW!
