On Sunday evening while delivering his lecture at the Sydney Opera House through a holographic projection, the Cambridge University scientist and professor was asked about a topic that no one figured would be in his repertoire: the British boyband known as One Direction.
Before Mr. Hawking's lecture ended, a member of the audience asked the 73-year-old:
"What do you think is the cosmological effect of Zayn leaving One Direction and consequently breaking the hearts of millions of teenage girls across the world?"
Kudos to the person who was able to weave in a question about 1D all while making it science-y. LOLz!
To which the professor responded:
Does One Direction have new competition?
After listening to Zerotwenty's new single, Break My Heart Again, we think the 1D boys might need to step up their game!
Similarly to the famous boy band, Zerotwenty met on their region's version of The Voice.
Wow, what a coincidence!
Though the boys grew up in different countries all around the world, they're determined meld their talents into something special!
Check out the band's bio (below)!
"Zerotwenty, 5 guys who all share the same dream. Aleks, Park, Garrett, Florian and Heiko are passionate about singing, making music and performing on stage . They all grew up in different countries over the world, but they came together after competing in the same talent show in their own region: The voice. The boys all came a long way in the competition, they didn't win, but all had something special. With their individual talents and personalities they form the boyband of the century: Zerotwenty. Based in Amsterdam, Zerotwenty is ready to win the hearts of fans all over the globe."
Sounds good to us!
So, what do YOU think of the group?
It looks like Louis Tomlinson is heading in a new direction!
The untitled label is an imprint of Cowell's Syco label, and the 23-year-old reportedly has already signed X Factor UK finalist Jack Walton!
Wow! Louis doesn't waste any time!
So, does this mean that Louis will pull a Zayn Malik and bring 1D to a threesome? It looks like we don't have to get our pitchforks ready yet, as he and the remaining band members are working on their next album.
The singer is really excited about this new opportunity to work with emerging artists, and said this about his new venture:
Well, it may not just be music that Zayn is pursuing!
Despite saying he wants to be a regular 22-year-old, Zayn might be looking for something as far from regular as it gets: movie stardom!
In fact, Zayn has already met with at least one film director!
Gurinder Chadha, who directed the wonderful Bend It Like Beckham that introduced the world properly to Keira Knightley, revealed:
One down, four more to go.
Directioners, this is something you ALL don't want to hear, but the end is near and inevitable for our favorite British boys!
While the world is still trying their best to get over the fact that Zayn Malik left One Direction, we can't help but wonder who's next to leave the group — actually, we have a pretty good idea on who it will be!
Harry Styles, anyone??
Documentary director Morgan Spurlock – you know, the guy who spent a whole bunch of time with the boys and directed This Is Us — thinks so!
The Supersize Me star and director opened up over the weekend about the future of the highly successful band:
On April 17, Zayn attended the British Asian Awards to accept a distinction for his contribution to music and his thank-you speech was very nostalgic for 1D.
While it's totally possible the 22-year-old is content flying solo, one thing is for sure — he mis his boys!!
Check out what Malik said about his former bandmates (below)!
Wow! Zayn's words were pretty moving!
We wonder what the boys of 1D think about his speech!

Niall girls, look away!!
It looks like our precious little Irish boy has found a lady love of his own!
Niall Horan went out with his fellow bandmates to the Great Gatsby Charity Ball on Thursday evening in London — and he left the event with someone VERY familiar.
No, she's not a famous face, but this lady WAS spotted with Niall down under a couple of months ago!
Ever since the 21-year-old was spotted with Melissa Whitelaw in Australia back in February, there have been rumors of the two hooking up and going out on low key dates.
But, it seems as if they've taken their relationship to the next level!
