Virtual Stephen Hawking at ASU Origins Symposium

Physicist Stephen Hawking's daughter Lucy [right] stepped in for her ailing father at ASU's Origins Symposium on Monday night to play his pre-recorded lecture and accompanying slides.

The 40-minute lecture is posted online on vimeo.

Hawking discussed the benefits of building a human base on another planet and speculated on why alien life is not contacting the human race. For one thing, “The probably of life developing intelligence like ours may be very low,” he said.
