The Cosmologist and Physicist, Stephen Hawking said he will leave the Earth to travel to space onboard Richard Branson’s spaceship, The Independent reported.
Professor Hawking told Good Morning Britain that he’d never dreamed he’d be able to head into space. But “Richard Branson has offered me a seat on Virgin Galactic, and I said yes immediately”, he said.
Richard Branson’s spaceflight company, Virgin Galactic, hopes soon to carry people into space on commercial missions.
In a wide-ranging interview, Hawking said that his “three children have brought me great joy – and I can tell you what will make me happy, to travel in space”.
Professor Hawking also discussed Donald Trump, who he said was a “demagogue” and made him fear that he might never be welcome in the US.
