Stephen Hawking Was Recently Asked About One Direction. His Response Is Everything.

"Finally, a question about something important."

Stephen Hawking has the answers when it comes to tough, hard-hitting questions.

He is one of the greatest thinkers in human history when it comes to theoretical physics and our universe.

Recently, he was at the Sydney Opera House and an audience member asked him a question we've all been dying to know the answer to.

What are the cosmological effects of Zayn Malik leaving boy band One Direction?

His answer was hilariously perfect and actually raised an important scientific point.

"Pay close attention to the study of theoretical physics," Hawking advised heartbroken teenage fans. "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."

Finally, something that both science nerds and Directioners can be excited about.
