I think Hawking is working for the government or something.
Like his job is to scare people about upcoming invasion...
I don't know why is he so "scared" of invasion by aliens, when we don't know if aliens even "exist".
We "haven't" found aliens, have we?

Its obvious Stephen Hawking is super intellegent, however he isn't perfect and I personally think that is shown when he assumes aliens would react like us so called "humans". Why would they be up for war as much as us, and also surerly Hawking knows their are many other planets just like ours that they could use, that might not have any life to defeat anyway?

All that Hawking did was state the obvious from a statistical, quantum physics standpoint, for a documentary series that's showing on the Discovery channel - not an article. While doing PR for the series he provided some of the information contained in the documentary as well as gave us some of his insight. I hope you don't live near the ocean, because otherwise Shark Week might be too much for you.

- light speed

Hawking is being incendiary, by forgetting the Drake equation. If there are uncountable worlds like our own in the universe, why try and steal this earth's resources when there are trillions upon trillions of planets bearing the same resources.
