Many, many stories, shows, and games have been made about alien species living out there. The math also adds up.

The Fermi paradox: Is there life out there?

Source: Youtube Channel Kurzgesagt The Fermi paradox is summarized in the video above. At a bare minimum, the Fermi paradox is the paradox of the Drake equation supposedly estimating a large number of possible planets in our Galaxy harboring life, yet no such evidence of intelligent life has been discovered. There are many possible speculations for why […] Continue reading

What is the Fermi Paradox?

The Fermi Paradox, first proposed by physicist Enrico Fermi, addresses the question, “where is all the intelligent life in the universe?” It might seem that the answer to this is obvious; life is incredibly rare. But let’s just run a few numbers anyway. The low-end estimate of how many stars are in just in our […] Continue reading

Are We Alone in the Universe?

And why does that question seem to be so hard to answer? Our universe is vast. There’s no doubt about that. And statistically, we should be able to find life in some way, shape, or form somewhere in the seemingly endless cosmos. For every grain of sand on Earth, there are ten thousand stars in … Continue reading Are We Alone in the Universe? Continue reading

Where is Everybody?

The Fermi Paradox questions how is it possible that if there are so many planets orbiting so many stars existing in so many solar systems making up so many galaxies composing so many superclusters creating our observable universe, how is it possible that we haven’t seen any other signs of intelligent life? This has many […] Continue reading

“Where are they?”

Enrico Fermi, the Italian physicist, was once having a casual conversation on UFO reports with his colleagues during a lunch break at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in 1950. He had exclaimed “Where are they?”, alluding to extraterrestrial life. Fermi was perplexed that despite the large probability of alien life not only existing but also […] Continue reading

The Fermi Paradox

The Fermi Paradox points out the issues with the expected number of predicted civilizations in the galaxy and the lack of interaction that mankind has had with them. It points out that the Sun is a young star and that many other star systems have had the time and conditions to bring about a civilization. […] Continue reading
