  • The Fermi-Paradox

    This is the Fermi-Paradox. Perhaps it is very hard for complex life to develop. We still haven’t completely figured out how life originated on earth and possibly the perfect conditions required rarely gets established in the universe. The early universe might have been very hostile and only recently have things cooled down for life to flourish. This would mean that humans are rare and among the first advanced civilization, if not the only civilization to have ever existed. Possibly life on current level on intelligence exists everywhere in the universe but will get terminated once it reaches a certain point. Two of the popular hypothesis proposed are as follows; One: A super advanced technology meant to solve all the problems of a civilization will end up destroying…

  • Does Life Exist Further In The Universe?

    the most famous one of these models. Rather than evaluate and quantify the number of civilisations, the equation yearned to inspire scientific dialogue at SETI ( Search for Intelligent life). The equation shows that the number of civilisations - N - is a product of certain variables such as the number of Sun like stars older than ours, the high probability of these stars having earth like planets etc. The equation is N = R* . fp . ne . fl . fi . fc .L But there is a distinct contradiction…

  • Analysis Of The Fermi Paradox

    The Fermi Paradox and Goldilocks zone are two great reasons for life on other plants, however, the Fermi Paradox could fall either way. It could fall for or against life on other planets because of this there are many scientists working through to find what's true. While people may choose their side and think that there is or isn’t life on other planets. There are thousands of conspiracy theories about alien life being real. If so, why haven’t they contacted us? Are they just not as…

  • The Universe In Steven Dick's The Biological Universe

    This includes the possibilities that Earth is a unique or rare instance, aliens lack the ability to communicate, and, somewhat darkly, intelligent life naturally destroys itself or others. Despite these explanations, the Fermi paradox not only casts doubt on the validity of the Drake equation, but the idea that the universe is biological, a concept closely related to cosmic evolution. If the equation is based on false premises, that there isn’t a natural progression from creation to life to…

  • Argumentative Essay On Radio Astronomy

    This brings up the problem known as the Fermi Paradox. This basically states that if the likelihood of intelligent life existing is so high then how come we have yet to come in contact or find proof? This lack of contact is sometimes referred to as “The Great Silence.” Many have tried to come up with solutions to this paradox and some of them definitely seem plausible. One of the obvious ones is that the Drake Equation is completely wrong. However, one of the bigger theories out there is known…

  • Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence By Seth Shostak

    In late August, the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute revealed that they had detected a strange signal that was 94 light years away from Earth. During the time of the signal’s discovery, senior astronomer for SETI, Seth Shostak, could only describe the signal as “interesting”. However, he rhetorically asks, “Could it be another society sending a signal our way?” Shostak, like many other scientists who had heard about the mysterious SETI signal, had hoped for signs of…

  • The Fermi Paradox: Two Different Points Of View

    The Fermi Paradox There’s an estimate of 100,00 intelligent civilizations in our galaxy, yet humans are experts on making everything about them. The Fermi Paradox establishes two different points of view where one may be correct and prove the other wrong: there’s life all through the universe or we are all by ourselves. Both are only speculations, but I believe the first one is closer to the truth. Though, most of us will rather ignore or not even accept the fact that human life and life…

  • The Fermi Paradox: Do Aliens Exist?

    Humans inhabit one of these planets which is instilled in a perfect system called the solar system. However, mankind may not be the only ones to have a system in which life can thrive on. There may be others that live in their own planets like us. In fact, some of them may have visited the Earth before mankind existed. The Fermi Paradox explains the multiple possibilities that may have occurred to show that there are other forms of life in the universe. For one, intelligent life may have…

  • Fermi Paradox: Are We Alone In Our Universe?

    Are we alone in our universe? This is one question scientist Enrico Fermi first asked in his theory which was later named the Fermi Paradox, the apparent theory of the existence of other intelligent life civilizations in our universe. Using the conflict of scale and probability, the Fermi Paradox favors intelligent life in the universe, despite the lack of evidence of extraterrestrials. No present observations suggest there are technologically advanced civilizations living in our galaxy or…

    Symbol Example from story Importance Act 1: Nature “Look like the innocent flower, but be the serpent under it.”- Lady Macbeth (Act 1 scene 5 line 72-73) “The air nimbly and sweetly recommends itself unto our gentle sense.” - King Duncan (Act 1, Scene 6, Line 1-2) “... heaven’s breath smells wooingly here.” - Banquo (Act 1, Scene 6, Line 6-7) All of these lines compare Macbeth to something in nature.
