Stephen Hawking Responded Perfectly To A Question About Zayn

“Finally, a question about something important.”

Legendary physicist Stephen Hawking spoke at the Sydney Opera House on Saturday night, appearing onstage as a 3D hologram from his physical location at Cambridge University in the UK.

Hawking spoke about the mysteries of the universe, being diagnosed with ALS, and the future of our planet.

“We must also continue to go into space for the future of humanity,” Hawking said. “I don’t think we will survive another 1,000 years without escaping beyond our fragile planet.”

“The fact that we humans, who are ourselves mere collections of fundamental particles of nature, have been able to come this close to an understanding of the laws governing us and our universe is a great triumph,” he added.

“So remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes a universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.”

Then a questioner asked: “What do you think is the cosmological effect of Zayn leaving One Direction and consequently breaking the hearts of millions of teenage girls across the world?”

And Hawking’s response was PERFECT.

“Finally, a question about something important,” he said.

“My advice to any heartbroken young girl is to pay close attention to the study of theoretical physics. Because one day there may well be proof of multiple universes.

“It would not be beyond the realms of possibility that somewhere outside of our own universe lies another different universe.

“And in that universe, Zayn is still in One Direction.”

It got better still for the questioner. “This girl may like to know that in another possible universe, she and Zayn are happily married,” Hawking added.
