Before you decide that the author of this articlecrazy conspiracy therapist, mind you, I did not come up with this myself. These are scientists. They claim that aliens exist and probably have already visited our planet. Perhaps they even miss us. Think for yourself - what is the likelihood that you and I are the only intelligent beings in the galaxy, not to mention the universe? American scientists claim to have found the answer to the question posed by the Italian physicist Enrico Fermi “where is everything?” This puzzle is known as the Fermi paradox. But how did scientists manage to find the answer to such a complex question?
Scientists have decided the Fermi paradox
In 1920, Albert Einstein rightly remarked: “Why should the Earth be the only planet on which there is life?” American scientists also think so. Specialists published their research in the prestigious journal The Astronomical Journal. Scientists believe that they have developed a solution to the Fermi paradox, which sounds like this: aliens exist, but do not want to communicate with us. Or maybe they already visited the Earth billions of years ago and see no reason to return.
Scientists have concluded that in our galaxyThere are several intelligent life forms. Lead author of the study, Jonathan Carroll-Nellenbeck, in an interview with Business Insider, said: “If you do not take into account the movement of stars when trying to solve the Fermi paradox, you have one of two things: either no one leaves our planet, or we are actually the only technological civilization in the galaxy ".
The theory of researchers is based on the fact that starsand planets revolve around the center of the Milky Way at different speeds and in different directions. From time to time, stars and planets are not far from each other, so scientists believe that aliens can travel to places in the galaxy that are closer to them. However, for this kind of travel, civilizations will need more time to settle in the galaxy than previously thought. This is very interesting, so I propose to discuss this in our Telegram chat.
Taking this into account, scientists believe thataliens may not have reached us yet, or if they had already done so, they could have visited Earth long before you and I evolved.
Conclusions of scientists supported by the head of the departmentHarvard University Astronomy Israeli physicist Avi Loeb. He did not take part in the study, however, he has been searching for life outside our planet for many years and has written more than 500 scientific papers. According to Loeb, the situation is complicated by the fact that we have no evidence of the existence of alien life forms. We did not detect a single signal from distant stars in our galaxy and did not find any traces of visits to aliens on our planet.
According to the scientist, the question is whatdo with this lack of evidence. “I came to the conclusion that we should continue to search for evidence, since we can find it in the most unexpected places,” Loeb said. The physicist suggests not paying attention to speculators and conspiracy theorists, but to continue to search for answers and conduct research. In the end, there is only one reality.
How many civilizations exist?
If you watched a science fiction movieA 1996 “Contact” with Jodie Foster and Matthew McConaughey in the lead roles, you can safely assume that if alien civilizations exist, they are not durable. “Contact” is based on the book of the same name by astronomer and popularizer of science Karl Sagan. The novel tells of the most scientifically real contact between humanity and an alien civilization. One of the main questions that the main characters are asked is the question of how developed civilizations survived scientific and technological progress and did not destroy themselves?
By the way, even more amazing theories about life in the vastness of the universe you will find on our channel in Yandex.Zen.
Avi Loeb believes that other civilizations couldto comprehend this sad fate. However, this does not mean that we cannot find evidence of their existence. After all, many studies in this area do not properly take into account how the Milky Way galaxy moves.
However, if an alien civilization existsfor a sufficiently long time and did not sink into oblivion before the nearest inhabited star system approached their planet, such a civilization may disappear before the aliens go beyond the limits of their solar system.
And how many intelligent civilizations do you think exist in our galaxy?
