Famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking believes humans are capable of time travel — and he’s not afraid to let everyone know according to NewsCorp Australian Papers in an updated article published 5/03/10.
The article is entitled: ‘Time Travel is Possible, Says Stephen Hawking.’
In preparing for the debut of his Discovery documentary, Stephen Hawking’s Universe, which screens next week, Hawking said he believed humans could travel millions of years into the future and repopulate their devastated planet.
Moving backwards is impossible, Hawking says, because it “violates a fundamental rule that cause comes before effect.”
“Time travel was once considered scientific heresy, and I used to avoid talking about it for fear of being labeled a crank,” he said in Stephen Hawking’s Universe.
“These days I’m not so cautious.”

Hawking’s ideas are covered in a separate article entitled: ‘Time travel possible, but only moving forwards, says Stephen Hawking.’
The article is accompanied by a current photo of Hawking, who has spent much of his life in a wheelchair due to suffering from motor neurone disease. He is able to talk via a speech synthesizer.
Hawking believes in ALIENS, too
In an article published 4/26/10 entitled: ‘Aliens are out there, but they’re unlikely to be friendly, says Stephen Hawking,’ Hawking says aliens are out there, but it could be too dangerous for humans to interact with extraterrestrial life.
According to the article, the 68-year-old scientist says a visit by extraterrestrials to Earth would be like Christopher Columbus arriving in the Americas, “which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.”
All of which could leave a person wondering: if Hawking is correct, would anyone want to go forward in time? And is it wise to send signals out into space and connect with aliens who might actually intercept our messages? This could all be extremely exciting, or it could be just too much risky business!
