Are we Alone in the Universe? A New Study Explains Why Fermi Paradox is Likely
- July 5, 2018
Fermi Paradox may be true after all.
For years, the people’s resolve to find life outside the Planet Earth has driven them to stage space explorations and countless movies and books as well. But despite tremendous efforts exerted to find intelligent life form other than earth, all calls remain to be unanswered as of this writing.
Sadly, the calls may be left unanswered for a rather long time, if not forever.
A new research which reassess Fermi Paradox says that, “the possibility we’re the only one in the entire galaxy is way higher than assumed given the hugh number of possible home planets. The researchers found out that the chance humanity stands alone in the category of intelligent civilizations in our galaxy is 53%–99.6%, and across the observable universe is 39%–85”.
And thats not it another study by TechTimes concluded that, according to the information we have with us right now, there is a greater chance that humans are the only intelligent species in the observable universe or in the entire Milky Way at this very moment.
Fermi Paradox refers to “conflict between an expectation of a high probability of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe and the apparently lifeless universe we in fact observe.” The paradox is named after physicist Enrico Fermi, who, in the middle of a discussion of scientists on alien, asked, “where is everybody?”
Fermi is also known as the “architect of the atomic bomb” and the “father of radioactivity research.”
