Stephen Hawking: Zayn Malik could still be in a parallel One Direction

“Finally, a question about something important…”

THE DEPARTURE OF Zayn Malik from One Direction has broken the hearts of young fans around the world – generating acres of column inches in the process, as media outlets wonder (pointlessly, it could be argued) ‘what next for the boys?’.

Up until now, the science community has been suspiciously silent on the subject.

“Finally, a question about something important,” the physicist told a crowd at Sydney Opera House on Saturday, as he appeared in holographic form from Cambridge.

Hawking went on to observe that in some alternate universe, Zayn and the ‘heartbroken girl’ who asked the question could well be happily married.

He was answering questions as part of ‘An Evening with Stephen Hawking’ at the landmark Sydney venue.

According to The Guardian, Hawking ended the event by paraphrasing Captain Kirk – saying “Beam me up, Scotty” – before his image exploded in a beam of light.
