Stephen Hawking Finally Weighed In On What Zayn Leaving One Direction Means For The Universe
We can all relax, the answer to all of our biggest questions is here. Thank heavens, we were beginning to wonder when someone would finally ask the most intelligent man on the planet about a certain boy band member leaving.
Hawking was in the Sydney Opera House on Saturday night as a hologram, so that he could conduct a panel discussion about all the things you’d expect Stephen Hawking – the smartest man and theoretical physicist on the planet – to talk about. Which includes 1D, apparently.
When finally broached with the question from a young female fan (of physics or One Direction, we’re not sure), Hawking finally shed some light on the cosmological implications of Zayn’s decision to leave One Direction, and what it could very well mean for humanity and science moving forward.
His intelligent, and sassy, response is included below in a snippet from Vanity Fair.
After Hawking answered inquiries about life, the universe, and everything, an attendee posed a far more important question to the acclaimed scientist: “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?”
“Finally, a question about something important,” Hawking 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.”
Hawking added that in one possible alternate universe, “she and Zayn are happily married.”
Update: For all the disbelievers, here is the video footage of Hawking answering this question.
What do you think? Has Hawkings put you at ease?
