Stephen Hawking will travel to space

Sir Richard Branson has offered the famous physicist a place on board his Virgin Galactic spacecraft. Hawking confirmed that Branson has offered him a seat on Virgin Galactic and that he immediately accepted. Nothing apparently, so he's headed for space. I'll take four, please.

"I don't know" was the reply that Hawking gave, but he added that it would make him happy to go to space.

Richard Branson s spaceflight company, Virgin Galactic, is hopeful to soon carry people into space on commercial missions.

The renowned scientist said that Trump's promise of the controversial border wall and the sanctioning of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines are created to "satisfy [Trump's] electorate, who are neither liberal nor that well-informed".

On Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Hawking said there was not "much chance" of the party winning an election under him. "Leaving Europe threatens Britain's status as a world-leader in science and innovation".

In an interview on Monday with the British program Good Morning Britain, Hawking said he's been waiting to visit space for a while. When asked what message he'd like delivered to Trump by Morgan during an upcoming meeting, Hawking suggested that he urge President Trump to replace Pruitt as head of the EPA. It effects America badly, so tackling it should win votes for his second term.

On British politics, Hawking said he felt a "hard Brexit" should be resisted, with the United Kingdom retaining strong links with the European Union and China. However, Hawking said he will keep supporting the party.

This isn't the first time that Hawking has gone in on Trump: In May 2016, during the USA presidential election, Hawking called then-candidate Trump "a demagogue, who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator", CNN reported at the time. "These were kids who had never walked a day in their lives, yet they got to soar like Superman on their flight", Diamandis said.
