During his speech at George Washington University, Professor Hawking speculated on the reasons why mankind has failed to detect any signs of alien life.
He offered three possibilities: that life of any kind is very rare in the universe; that simple life forms are common, but intelligent life rare; or that intelligent life tends to destroy itself quickly.
"Personally, I favour the second possibility - that primitive life is relatively common, but that intelligent life is very rare," he said.
"Some would say it has yet to occur on Earth."
