Stephen Hawking can soon add “space tourist” to his long list of accomplishments.
In an interview with Good Morning Britain‘s Piers Morgan (watch it in full at the bottom), the 75-year-old Hawking told Morgan that Branson “… offered me a seat on Virgin Galactic, and I said yes immediately. Since that day, I haven’t changed my mind.”
That would, of course, bring the noted cosmologist a little closer to the black holes and stars that he has theorized so much about over the course of his career.
Hawking also covers a range of other topics in the 11-minute-long interview, including his thoughts on President Donald Trump’s election, Brexit, and the environment.
