Directioners, Stephen Hawking is a beacon of light in a world where Zayn Malik is no longer a member of One Direction. During a talk at the Sydney Opera House on April 25, the renowned physicist gave pretty much the best response ever to the 1D news.

Buzzfeed reports that the scientist (who spoke via a hologram — seriously) was asked, “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?”

Legit question.

“Finally, a question about something important,” Hawking said, adding, “My advice to any heartbroken young girl is to pay close attention to the study of theoretical physics. Because one day there may well be proof of multiple universes.”

Even better, the physicist's explanation included what every Directioner knows in his or her heart.

“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,” Hawking said. "This girl may like to know that in another possible universe, she and Zayn are happily married.”

We love that his answer is not only 100 percent awesome, but it's backed by science. In taking the fan's question so seriously, Hawking proved he's not one of those people making fun of Directioners for being upset about Zayn quitting.

Conclusion: Stephen Hawking is 1D AF.
