One of the most important questions mankind has ever asked may finally have an answer.
Are we alone in the universe?
Of course, we don’t know the complete answer today, but a planetary scientist has a compelling theory about when and where we might – and why we haven’t made contact yet.
A question asked by physicist Enrico Fermi sums up what has become known as the Fermi Paradox – considering the size and scope of the known universe, and based on humanity’s own desperate loneliness and eager attempts to contact other sentient life forms throughout the galaxy, by this point if there were aliens out there, why haven’t we bumped into them already?
There should be intelligent life in the universe beyond our own planet, and the fact that we haven’t heard from anyone suggests that something odd is going on among the stars. Science tells us that theoretically there should be a lot more communication bouncing around out there.
Planetary scientist Alan Stern of Colorado’s Southwest Research Institute has proposed a new theory for why our nearest neighbors haven’t been returning our calls.
Essentially, he argues that other alien life throughout our own galaxy is simply too cold to listen to our desperate cries for attention. paranormal,paranormal,paranormal
