Piers Morgan interviewed Stephen Hawking for Good Morning Britain on Monday and the man who has studied space for so long appears to be one step closer to space travel.
When asked about the meaning of life, Hawking said, "I have no idea. But I do remember when I was happiest. It was 1967 and the birth of my first child, Robert. My three children have brought me great joy. And I can tell you what will make me happiest: to travel in space. I have already completed a zero gravity flight, which allowed me to float weightless but my ultimate ambition is to fly to space."
Hawking took a zero gravity flight in 2007 and said that his next step would be to travel to space.
Stephen Hawking told Morgan, "I thought no one would take me but Richard Branson has offered me a seat in Virgin Galactic. And I said yes immediately. Since that day I have never changed my mind."
