Damn the Fermi Paradox!

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.
