Hawking, the noted theoretical physicist, said that humans will likely expend the planet’s resources in that time, according to the remarks, first reported by Daily Express.

Hawking has made similarly dire remarks in the past, including earlier this year when he called when he said disaster on Earth was a “near certainty.”
