The idea that we are alone in the universe seems to me completely implausible and arrogant, considering the number of planets and stars that we know exist, it's extremely unlikely that we are the only form of evolved life. Stephen Hawking

Everything that civilisation has to offer is a product of human intelligence; we cannot predict what we might achieve when this intelligence is magnified by the tools that AI may provide, but the eradication of war, disease, and poverty would be high on anyone's list. Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last. Stephen Hawking

We got through all of Genesis and part of Exodus before I left. One of the main things I was taught from this was not to begin a sentence with And. I pointed out that most sentences in the Bible began with And, but I was told that English had changed since the time of King James. In that case, I argued, why make us read the Bible? But it was in vain. Robert Graves was very keen on the symbolism and mysticism in the Bible at that time. Stephen Hawking

There is no prescribed route to follow to arrive at a new idea. You have to make the intuitive leap. But the difference is that once you've made that intuitive leap you have to justify it by filling in the intermediate steps. Stephen Hawking

On seeing the Enterprise's warp engine while visiting the set of Star Trek: The Next Generation (where he would briefly play himself in the 1993 episode Descent, Part I), Hawking smiled and said: I'm working on that. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

Galileo, perhaps more than any other single person, was responsible for the birth of modern science. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

What is it that breathes fire into the equations and makes a universe for them to describe.... Why does the universe go to all the bother of existing? Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

I believe that the long-term future of the human race must be space and that it represents an important life insurance for our future survival, as it could prevent the disappearance of humanity by colonizing other planets, Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

It often happens that I have an idea, but then I try to fill in the intermediate steps and find they don't work, so I have to give it up. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

We are all now connected by the Internet, like neurons in a giant brain. Stephen Hawking

If one is physically disabled, one cannot afford to be *psychologically* disabled as well. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

I don't think the human race will survive the next thousand years, unless we spread into space. There are too many accidents that can befall life on a single planet. But I'm an optimist. We will reach out to the stars. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

A lot of prizes have been awarded for showing the universe is not as simple as we might have thought. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

What could define God, [is thinking of God] as the embodiment of the laws of nature. However, this is not what most people would think of that God. They made a human-like being with whom one can have a personal relationship. When you look at the vast size of the universe and how insignificant an accidental human life is in it, that seems most impossible. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

The universe and the Laws of Physics seem to have been specifically designed for us. If any one of about 40 physical qualities had more than slightly different values, life as we know it could not exist: Either atoms would not be stable, or they wouldn't combine into molecules, or the stars wouldn't form heavier elements, or the universe would collapse before life could develop, and so on... Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

Some individuals are better able than others to draw the right conclusions about the world about them and act accordingly. These individuals will be more likely to survive and reproduce so their pattern of behaviour and thought will become dominant Stephen Hawking

Before I lost my voice, it was slurred, so only those close to me could understand, but with the computer voice, I found I could give popular lectures. I enjoy communicating science. It is important that the public understands basic science, if they are not to leave vital decisions to others. Stephen Hawking

As we shall see, the concept of time has no meaning before the beginning of the universe. This was first pointed out by St. Augustine. When asked: What did God do before he created the universe? Augustine didn't reply: He was preparing Hell for people who asked such questions. Instead, he said that time was a property of the universe that God created, and that time did not exist before the beginning of the universe. Stephen Hawking

There ought to be something very special about the boundary conditions of the universe and what can be more special than that there is no boundary? Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

I don't believe that the ultimate theory will come by steady work along existing lines. We need something new. We can't predict what that will be or when we will find it because if we knew that, we would have found it already! Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

I'm not religious in the normal sense. I believe the universe is governed by the laws of science. The laws may have been decreed by God, but God does not intervene to break the laws. Stephen Hawking

I am discounting reports of UFOs. Why would they appear only to cranks and weirdos? Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

Observations indicate that the universe is expanding at an ever-increasing rate. It will expand forever, getting emptier and darker. Although the universe doesn't have an end, it had a beginning in the Big Bang. One might ask what is before that but the answer is that there is nowhere before the Big Bang just as there is nowhere south of the South Pole. Stephen Hawking

What lies north of the North Pole? Stephen Hawking

If a superior alien civilization sent us a message saying, 'We'll arrive in a few decades', would we just reply, 'OK, call us when you get here - we'll leave the lights on'? Probably not - but this is more or less what is happening with AI, Stephen Hawking

Just like a computer, we must remember things in the order in which entropy increases. This makes the second law of thermodynamics almost trivial. Disorder increases with time because we measure time in the direction in which disorder increases. You can't have a safer bet than that! Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

The progress of the human race in understanding the universe has established a small corner of order in an increasingly disordered universe. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

There could be whole antiworlds and antipeople made out of antiparticles. However, if you ever meet your antiself, don't shake hands! You would both vanish in a great flash of light. Stephen Hawking

Download Wallpaper:

Before 1915, space and time were thought of as a fixed arena in which events took place, but which was not affected by what happened in it. Space and time are now dynamic quantities... space and time not only affect but are also affected by everything that happens in the universe. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

Our minds work in real time, which begins at the Big Bang and will end, if there is a Big Crunch - which seems unlikely, now, from the latest data showing accelerating expansion. Consciousness would come to an end at a singularity. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

Evolution has ensured that our brains just aren't equipped to visualise 11 dimensions directly. However, from a purely mathematical point of view it's just as easy to think in 11 dimensions, as it is to think in three or four. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

There are grounds for cautious optimism that we may now be near the end ofthe search for the ultimate laws of nature. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

Download Wallpaper:

Some people would claim that things like love, joy and beauty belong to a different category from science and can't be described in scientific terms, but I think they can now be explained by the theory of evolution. Stephen Hawking
Download Wallpaper:

As scientists, we step on the shoulders of science, building on the work that has come before us - aiming to inspire a new generation of young scientists to continue once we are gone. Stephen Hawking
