Fermi Paradox Answered?! (not clickbait)

After hastily copy pasting “Fermi Paradox” into my search bar when I saw it was a potential topic for blogging, the results I found gave me an exciting opportunity. Understanding why we haven’t detected aliens seemed right up the alley of Kurzgesagt, a youtube channel that specializes in the intersection of physics and philosophy. Luckily […] Continue reading

The Fermi Paradox

The Fermi Paradox attempts to describe why we have not made contact/found any intelligent life although the conservative estimate for how many intelligent civilizations there are throughout the universe is ten million billion. This theory is completely based on speculative math using the data we know about our universe. The paradox also describes Types of […] Continue reading

Answer to the Fermi Paradox: They Just Don’t Need Us

The Fermi paradox states that due to the relatively high chance of intelligent life existing somewhere else in the universe, they should have visited us by now, except they have not yet. So why? There are currently some explanations ranging from intelligent life just not existing to them not deeming us worthy of participating in […] Continue reading

The Fermi Paradox

“If life is so easy, someone from somewhere must be calling by now.” Nobel prize winning physicist Enrico Fermi, over casual lunch 70 years ago in 1950, asked confronted this very same question (Space). Given the current scientific literature of his time, Fermi realized that the requirements for life are not as elusive or asContinue reading “The Fermi Paradox” Continue reading

Where are they?

The likelihood of life outside of our planet is a heavily debated topic.  Overall, it seems reasonable to assume that with all of the unexplored universe around us, and the conditions required to sustain life that are not all that hard to find, there should be plenty examples of life elsewhere.  Despite this, and the overwhelming beliefContinue reading “Where are they?” Continue reading

The Fermi Paradox

If you were to ask different people what one of their biggest questions about our universe is, it’s pretty believable to think that one of the most common questions would be “Do aliens exist?”. This question is especially important in that it’s a question that no one really knows the answer to; whether or notContinue reading “The Fermi Paradox” Continue reading

Hey, Where is Everybody?

When we studied the Drake Equation in class, it was interesting to note that using the maximum possible values for each variable in the equation, there could be as many as 21,000,000 detectable civilizations out there right now waiting to be discovered? If there are so, so many civilizations out there sending communication into space … Continue reading Hey, Where is Everybody? Continue reading

Fermi Paradox

Do you believe in aliens? With over 4,000 planets outside of our solar system and likely many many more, it seems almost crazy not to. Using the Drake Equation, astronomers estimate the probability of alien life outside of our solar system. Depending on the scientist’s opinions and research, this number can vary greatly but oftenContinue reading “Fermi Paradox” Continue reading

The Fermi Paradox

The Fermi Paradox is the paradox that while there are probably other intelligent life forms in the Milky Way, none have have made any communication with Earth. Since Earth is a younger planet of the Milky Way, if intelligent civilizations existed they would likely be much older, meaning they would have the technology to communicate […] Continue reading

Where is everybody?

The Fermi Paradox addresses the famous question: are we alone? Statistically, it’s extremely unlikely that Earth hosts the only life in the universe. Most of the universe is (by current knowledge) unreachable to humans. But let’s look at our own galaxy. Many estimates say there should be at least a hundred thousand civilizations in theContinue reading “Where is everybody?” Continue reading
