Scientist Stephen Hawking claimed that the next generation must inhibit another planet within a century since the future of humanity no longer lies on earth.

According to The Independent, Hawking, a leading theoretical physicist, said that the growing advancement of computer systems and machines could take over the human race.

“I don’t think we will survive another 1,000 without escaping beyond our fragile planet,” he said in a speech made at Oxford University, the newspaper reported.

“We must also continue to go into space for the future of humanity,” he added.
