At a talk at the Sydney Opera House last weekend, famous British cosmologist and theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking beamed in via hologram to address a large and eager audience. After a night of discussing ALS, the future of Earth, and black holes, the following question came from a young girl:
“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.”
Okay, so we already knew that Stephen has a sense of humor. But what does all this have to do with a public discussion about physics and cosmology? Hawking quickly brought the subject back to his studies, saying,
“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 then 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.”
He also suggests that, in that universe, the heartbroken girl and Zayn may be happily married! Who ever said science couldn’t be fun?
Watch his hilarious and well-crafted response below:
Boldly, Stephen Hawking says Zayn never left One Direction.
