In a documentary, Expedition New Earth - part of the BBC’s new science season Tomorrow’s World - Hawking and his former student Christophe Galfard will travel the world to find out how humans could survive in outer space.

In the series, Hawking claims that time is running out for the Earth and humanity will need to leave the planet for its survival.

Last month, Hawking had warned that the aggressive instincts of humans, coupled with the fast pace of growth in technology may destroy us all by nuclear or biological war, adding that only a ‘world government’ may prevent this impending doom.
