thomst writes: The Winnipeg Free Press posts a story by Cassandra Szklarski of the Canadian Press about an email interview with Stephen Hawking in which the astrophysicist and geek hero opines, "Our only chance of long-term survival is not to remain lurking on planet Earth, but to spread out into space." The story also covers the upcoming Canadian debut of Hawking's new "TV series Brave New World With Stephen Hawking", and his excitement about ongoing work at the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Ont. investigating quantum theory and gravity.
"Summit meetings tend to be like panda matings. The expectations are always
