Hawk­ing plans a get­away

Sunday Sport - - LEGENDS -

THE SEARCH FOR A NEW EARTH – BBC2, 9pm PART one of two. Physi­cist Stephen Hawk­ing thinks the hu­man species will have to pop­u­late a new planet within 100 years if it’s to sur­vive, with cli­mate change, pol­lu­tion, de­for­esta­tion, pan­demics and pop­u­la­tion growth mak­ing life on Earth in­creas­ingly pre­car­i­ous.

In this pro­gramme, he is joined by engi­neer­ing pro­fes­sor Danielle Ge­orge and his for­mer stu­dent Christophe Gal­fard to ex­am­ine if hu­mans could re­lo­cate to other plan­ets, trav­el­ling the globe to meet sci­en­tists and oth­ers work­ing on the means and method.
