On Saturday night, Professor Stephen Hawking took questions from an audience in the Sydney Opera House. The acclaimed physicist addressed an important issue: the abrupt and wrenching depature of singer Zayn Malik from the boy band One Direction. BuzzFeed quotes the questioner:
What do you think is the cosmological effect of Zayn leaving One Direction and consequently breaking the hearts of millions of teenage girls across the world?
Prof. Hawking responded perfectly:
“Finally, a question about something important,” he said.
“My advice to any heartbroken young girl is to pay close attention to the study of theoretical physics. Because one day there may well be proof of multiple universes.”
“It would not be beyond the realms of possibility that somewhere outside of our own universe lies another different universe.”
“And in that universe, Zayn is still in One Direction.”
It got better still for the questioner. “This girl may like to know that in another possible universe, she and Zayn are happily married,” Hawking added.
