Here is what he thinks.

Stephen Hawking: If aliens call, we should be 'wary of answering'

Physicist Stephen Hawking is more convinced than ever that humans are not the only intelligent life form in the universe.

Hawking details his quest to find alien life and takes viewers on a tour of his favorite places in the universe, in a

newly released 25-minute film from CuriosityStream
, an online video-on-demand platform.

Thanx for the link Lynn! The important factor we all should hold in account is how we behave and how we treat earth and the universe (with respect). If we do a good job, I don't think we have anything to worry over. The aliens are not the decisive parameter, we are.

He talks again:


Professor Stephen Hawking: Humanity will not survive another 1,000 years if we don’t escape our planet


Professor Stephen Hawking has warned humanity will not survive another 1,000 years on Earth unless the human race finds another planet to live on.

The celebrated theoretical physicist and cosmologist painted a grave picture of the future while delivering a lecture on the universe and the origins of human beings at the Oxford Union debating society on Monday.

Professor Hawking, 74, reflected on the understanding of the universe garnered from breakthroughs over the past five decades, describing 2016 as a "glorious time to be alive and doing research into theoretical physics".
