Stephen Hawking’s doomsday prophecy slowly comes to fruition

The world is in unprecedented chaos, people remember the doomsday prophecies that the famous late physicist Stephen Hawking had mentioned repeatedly, many of which are gradually becoming the truth.

As of 2019, the world still seems to be in turmoil, the wildfires in Australia last over four months, flames are swarming everywhere, the skies are stained with blood. In the past 17 years, this is the first time the Australian capital, Canberra, has declared a state of emergency.

Grasshoppers in Africa are very alarming, the number of locusts in Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia has reached around 360 billion, the highest in 25 years. The Middle East is like a barrel of gunpowder, the touch slightly explodes, only it is not clear who will be the first to remove the “key”.

Riots broke out in many European countries, refugees were “boils” that Europe could not erase. In Asia, the epidemic is raging, etc.

Stephen Hawking warns humans are on the brink of danger

The world seems to have fallen into chaos, reminding people of the doomsday prophecy that Stephen Hawking repeatedly mentioned. Although Hawking’s body was “trapped” in the wheelchair, his mind “touched” the entire universe. His best-known “Hawking Radiation” theory is to study the problems associated with thermal radiation from cosmic black holes.

Besides studying space, Stephen Hawking is arguably the scientist most interested in human fate. He has repeatedly warned that humans are on the verge of danger:

“People have to seriously consider their own survival issues for hundreds of years. I have seen human disasters and in the past there have been many crises of human survival. The frequency of catastrophic situations has also increased and great caution is needed to avoid such crises. But I am optimistic. If humans manage to get to space within the next 200 years, we can avert disaster. “

He said humans should explore space in order to find a way out: “Due to human survival, expansion in space is very important. The danger of destruction of life on earth by disaster increases, such as the sudden degradation of global warming, nuclear war, genetically modified viruses and even dangers. another that we don’t know yet ”.

Although he advocates for humanity to explore the universe, he has also expressed concern about man seeking the existence of another life in the universe: living in outer space, because we cannot be sure whether or not they are human friendly. If we are the only intelligent life in this galaxy, we have to make sure that we can survive and endure. But given the limited resources of the earth and the exponential growth of the population, the only chance for us to survive is to find a way out into space, not to the left. Earth”.

He said humans should explore space in order to find a way out, but also expressed concern about humans seeking the existence of other life in the universe.

Stephen Hawking made many predictions about human fate

In this context, Stephen Hawking made many predictions about the fate of mankind:

1. Humans must leave Earth in 2060.

2. Humans entered space in 2100 and new human species appeared.

3. The earth will be destroyed in 2215.

4. As the earth’s population increases in 2600, energy consumption will increase and the earth will “become a burning ball of fire”.

In short, the central significance of Hawking’s prophecy is that the earth will become dangerous and humans must flee. With the development of science and technology, the future instability of the Earth is also increasing. In the short term, there are several predictions regarding the destruction of the planet and humanity as follows:

1. Asteroids destroy the earth

The impact of an asteroid on Earth is one of the four major sudden disasters in the world. Studies have proven that many extinction events in Earth’s history are caused by small celestial bodies.

NASA said that in the future asteroids could still collide with Earth. They find about 30 new “Near Earth Celestial Bodies” (NEO) each week, now a total of over 19,000 celestial bodies have been found. However, NASA warns that their “NEO” category is incomplete, which means unpredictable collisions could occur at any time.

In 2014, astronomers used very large telescopes to observe and discover an asteroid that was smashed by a dwarf and forming a ring of glowing debris. They now believe that this white dwarf could have swallowed up at least 15 planets.

This white dwarf, named “WD 1145 + 017”, is about 570 light years from Earth and can be found in the constellation Virgo. It is also known as the current version of “the dead star”. Scientific research shows that after a planet flies near a dead star, the white dwarf will destroy that planet, and the planet’s debris will be completely destroyed in about 1 million years. It is not known how many of these “dead stars” exist in the universe, and whether the earth will be “crushed” by this dead star remains a question mark.

2. The outbreak of nuclear war

Although humans understand the dangers of nuclear weapons, once world war breaks out mankind cannot guarantee if there will be madmen who will “push the button” on the nucleus, just quantity Nuclear weapons possessed by United States was enough to destroy mankind.

3. The “rabies” of the virus

Researchers in Antarctica have discovered a deadly virus that has never been seen in Antarctic permafrost. No animal on this planet is immune to this virus. With global warming and melting glaciers in Antarctica, US scientists have warned that once the virus recovers and spreads, no organism on the planet will survive.

In addition to the deadly viruses lurking in the frozen ground of Antarctica, the frozen ground of the Arctic is no exception. Researchers in the United States and Germany have found that the formation of the so-called “thermokarst” lake will cause the arctic permafrost to suddenly melt, increasing greenhouse gas emissions and accelerating it. global warming.

And the melting permafrost in the Arctic, some viruses that have been recognized as extinct, like the variola virus, have a reproductive process like the revitalizing Pithovirus. This will cause unforeseeable risks to humans.

4. Genetic warfare

With the advancement of science and the advancement of genetic engineering technology, genetic engineering in the military field is likely to develop into genocidal weapons. Because all forms of people reflect their genes, killing with a genetic weapon could achieve the goal of genocide.

A recent report from the University of Cambridge said that biological weapons created to combat the DNA of a particular race may emerge in the future, and warned governments to prepare in advance to prevent Stop the Crisis human.

According to a report from the Center for Risk Research at the University of Cambridge, they believe that in recent years, as genetic engineering technology has developed and become more popular, the costs have become cheaper. , the ability to hurt and kill others more quickly has also been “democratized”. “In some extreme cases, people have even created biological weapons that target specific racial genetic traits.”

According to R. Hammerschlag, a famous American medical scientist, the use of racial weapons with varying effectiveness can kill 25 to 30% of the population of the attacked country. Compared to nuclear war, genetic warfare is also a big problem that humans cannot ignore.

5. Volcanic eruption

Volcanic eruptions caused the extinction of many species, for example during the Permian period the creature was destroyed on a large scale due to the volcanic eruption. If the volcano in Yellowstone National Park were to erupt now, the ash and lava would be enough to destroy North America. The volcano erupted in Yellowstone National Park 640,000 years ago, with 1,000 km3 of lava erupting.

6. Energy, resource depletion and population explosion

With the depletion of energy, resources and population explosion impacting human destiny, this problem will be gradually resolved through the development of science and technology.

Although the population on Earth is currently increasing, in many developed regions the population has fallen into a state of aging and negative growth. This means that the underdeveloped and the poor are reproducing the “frenzy”, while population growth in developed regions is at a standstill.

This will lead to serious conflicts in the future, as the core of wealth creation and social resources comes from developed regions, and their demographic decline will imbalance the supply. and the demand for global resources, while increasing global conflicts.

But this is not a fatal crisis for human development. Hawking’s prediction is significant to some extent in warning a crisis conscious.

As in the science fiction novel “The Three Bodies Problem”, he says:

“Being is inherently a kind of luck, the earth in the past is like that, the present in this devastating universe is like that everywhere, but I don’t know when to start, humanity has a virtual thought, this existence is something which can be firmly gripped in the palm of your hand! “
