The Fermi Paradox really messes with my head. The number of stars and possible planets out there are truly astronomical (pun intended). The possibility of extraterrestrial life seems almost a certainty. So then why isn’t there any visible evidence of space faring civilisations out there?
There is also the chance that we may find life in our own solar system. I Just wish we would hurry up and get out there and explore it as there are actually a few places where life may exist. Jupiter’s moon Europa is probably one of the most promising, as well as Saturn’s moons Titan and Enceladus. Mars is also a candidate for life, although it looks barren, life often finds a way to survive in the harshest of conditions.
It scares the crap out of me to think that we may be alone in this huge Universe, I just don’t want to even contemplate it. Does it scare you?
As well as explaining the Fermi Paradox, Kurz Gesagt has created a part 2 video that has some possible solutions. You can see them both below.
I probably won’t sleep tonight as the weight of the entire, possibly lifeless, universe presses down on me and this one fragile, life-filled little planet.
