If they flew through our Solar System

Where Are All the Aliens

moncler outlet store As far as we know https://www.moncler-jacket-outlet.com, Earth is the only place in the Universe cheap moncler coats where life has arisen, let alone developed an intelligent civilization. moncler outlet store

This baffling contradiction is known as the Fermi Paradox, first described in 1950 by the physicist Enrico Fermi.

moncler outlet Scientists have been trying to resolve this mystery for decades, listening for radio signals from other worlds. We’ve only sampled a fraction of the radio spectrum, and so far, we cheap moncler outlet haven’t detected anything that could be a signal from an intelligent species. moncler outlet

Maybe we moncler outlet sale really are the only planet in the entire Universe to develop life. Maybe we’re the first civilization to reach this level of moncler mens jackets advancement in the entire galaxy. But with so many worlds out there, that really seems unlikely.

Maybe civilizations destroy themselves when they reach a certain point. Nuclear weapons, global warming, killer epidemics, and overpopulation could all end humanity. Asteroids could moncler sale strike the planet and wipe us out. But would this happen to every single civilization? one hundred percent of them? Even if ninety nine percent of civilizations destroy themselves, we’d still have a couple that made it through and fully colonized the galaxy.

moncler sale outlet Maybe they’re just too far away, and our signals can’t reach each other. But then, self replicating probes could traverse those distances and leave a local artifact in every single star system. moncler sale outlet

Maybe we can’t understand their signals or recognize their artifacts. Maybe, but if aliens constructed a series of artifacts on Earth, cheap moncler sale I think we’d notice them. The aliens would have experience creating obvious structures.

cheap moncler Maybe they’re just too alien and we just can’t understand them. Maybe we’re too insignificant Moncler Outlet, and they don’t think cheap moncler we’re even worth talking to. We don’t need to talk to them to know they exist. If they flew through our Solar System, ignoring us, we’d still know they’re around. cheap moncler

moncler outlet online Maybe moncler outlet they’re not talking to us on purpose, and we’re really in some kind of galactic zoo. Or aliens have a Prime Directive, and they’re not allowed to talk to us. Again, all the aliens? Not a single one has gotten through and snuck us some evidence? moncler outlet online

cheap moncler jackets There are many other potential solutions to the moncler outlet online Fermi Paradox, but I personally find them all insufficient. The Universe is big, and old, and if extraterrestrial life is anything like us, it wants to multiply and spread out. cheap moncler jackets

moncler sale Perhaps the most unsettling thought is that something happens to 100% of intelligent civilizations that prevents them from exploring and settling the galaxy. Maybe something good, like the discovery of a transportation system to another Universe. Or maybe something bad, like a destructive technology that has destroyed every single civilization before us. moncler sale

How do you feel about the Fermi Paradox? How do you resolve the contradictions? Whatever the solution, it’s really fun to monlcer down jackets think about.

moncler outlet sale We recorded a couple of episodes of Astronomy Cast about the Drake Equation and the Fermi Paradox, and we did a sequel episode called, Solutions to the Fermi Paradox. moncler outlet sale

Humans are a colonistic species. Never ending expansion if history thought us anything about our own kind. We are at the birth of colonizing the moon and mars, making our first baby steps out of our own planet and its gravitational pull. Its stubborn to assume we will end there. The moment we figure out to get to alpha centauri we will go there, moncler sale outlet even if we cant figure out to go faster than the speed of light.

We are still able to cruise hundreds of light years. Giant spaceships are very possible in the future. And so is bringing that spaceship towards the speed of light will some day be a possibility(how close is still a ? Though)and we are able to keep humans alive in an isolated environment.

moncler outlet jackets if there is life with a few 100light years it will be reachable. Wether this will be very useful is also a question moncler outlet jackets

moncler jacket sale and i cant imagine we are even close to figuring out everything there is in the universe while this is already based on current technologies. moncler jacket sale

Just a brainstorm: Imagine all these different parameters intelligent life consists of that we know, and multiply that with whatever. Feelings like aggression, love, curiosity, boredom. Lifeforms relative size to surroundings and the possibility to sensor different things. I guess you need certain light sensors in order to become aware of the sky/universe. You need some bodyparts that can handle things, doing experiments and so on. You need to be social. Many, many more parameters. If lifeforms miss some of those, or if earthlike life has some kind of abnormal extreme in some of those parameters, which made us more intelligent/aware then that could be a coincidence only happening to 1/100, 1/1000, or maybe even 1/100000 lifeforms. How many nearby signaling aliens are then realistic?

Other reasons could of course be, that when first a lifeform is able to star travel or signalling long distance, very harmful technology is so easy to make because of 3D printers^10 that suicidal, depressed, angry, whatever creatures having a bad day could end a civilization.

cheap moncler coats And what about physical laws we don know yet, because they doesn exist buy moncler jackets until you do something specifically and then crashed civilization. cheap moncler coats

cheap moncler outlet Even though there are so many potenitally habited planets compare that to the extreme uniqueness of thoughts. Would alien creatues ever come up with what we did, if they didn lived the lives of Einstein, Brahe, Newton and so on? How many combinations of words put together into sentences could you generate from all the languages on earth? Way more than habitable planets in the universe, i think. And what is the point? Randomness might play such a big role, that it is very likely that nothing like us happened nearby. cheap moncler outlet

If you try to map som kind of butterfly effect from now and back to the very first life on eart, what a mindblowing huge amount of butterflye effects could have happened, if you consider every photon, meteors or other stuff hitting earth, changing the path of development.
