Hardly, Hawking: Physicist Relegates UFOs to the Lunatic Fringe

Where did we come from? How did the universe come into being? Are we alone in the universe? Is there alien life out there, and what is the future of the human race? These are the sorts of questions that great minds of science have been asking ever since our concept of a universe was first realized, and all were questions put forth by acclaimed physicist Stephen Hawking, during a lecture he gave in 2008.

I’m discounting the reports of UFOs… why would they appear only to cranks and weirdos?”
