Why we might be alone in the Universe

  • Why we might be alone in the Universe


    There are trillions upon trillions of stars and worlds in our Universe. Faced with such large numbers, it's tempting to conclude that there must surely be other life out there, somewhere. But is this right? Could the probability of life beginning be a number so small that we are alone? A video essay by Professor David Kipping.

  • Why We are Alone in the Galaxy | Marc Defant | TEDxUSF


    NOTE FROM TED: We've flagged this talk, which was filmed at a TEDx event, because it appears to fall outside TEDx's curatorial guidelines. The sweeping claims and assertions made in this talk are based on the speaker’s own theory and lack legitimate scientific support. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here:

    The origin of intelligent life on earth requires a host of statistically improbable events which may imply that similar intelligent life elsewhere is extremely unlikely, a fact mostly ignored in discussions about contacting extraterrestrial life.

    “Marc Defant is a professor of geochemistry at USF and studies volcanoes through various funding such as the NSF and National Geographic. He has published research in Nature and other journals and has written a book on the history of the universe, earth and life. He was the keynote speaker at a conference on granitic rocks in China and was one of the first American scientists to work on volcanoes in Kamchatka when it was part of the Soviet Union. He is currently focused on emphasizing the importance of science in society.”

  • Why We May Be Alone in the Universe


    Today, we discuss the possibility of humanity being alone in the galaxy or perhaps even the greater universe. We consider just how improbable our existence is by evaluating both the number of potential sites for life within our galaxy alone as well as the probability of abiogenesis occurring elsewhere.

  • 10 Space Discoveries of 2020 Show We Might Not Be Alone


    Astronomers from MIT registered a repeating signal from 500 million light years away. Such signals are called fast radio bursts, or FRBs, and they’re usually singular events. No one knows what their sources are, but they could be supernovae or bursts of energy from quasars. This repeating one, though, is pretty creepy because it’s regular: for four days, radio equipment captures signals all the time, and then they abruptly stop. But after 12 days, the same pattern begins: 4 days of constant radio bursts and 12 more days of silence.

    Astronomers managed to locate the signal as coming from a galaxy half a billion light years away from us, but what causes it is still unknown. It may be a spinning quasar or a supermassive black hole, but an alien technology is not excluded either. By the way, there just might be about 6 billion Earth-like planets in the Milky Way galaxy alone. The latest data has shown that every fifth Sun-like star can have at least one planet in its habitable zone! Okay, here's the most amazing news from the further reaches of outer space.

  • The Fermi Paradox — Where Are All The Aliens?


    The universe is unbelievably big – trillions of stars and even more planets. Soo… there just has to be life out there, right? But where is it? Why don’t we see any aliens? Where are they? And more importantly, what does this tell us about our own fate in this gigantic and scary universe?

  • A Physicist Has Explained Why Weve Never Seen Aliens


    Recently, astronomers were able to map about 1 billion stars around us. Sounds impressive, but that’s less than 1% of the total stars in the Milky Way. So it’s statistically impossible for us to be the first intelligent species in the galaxy! But if there absolutely should be developed civilizations in the Universe, then where is everybody?

    We’ve been looking for about 70 years for any sign of extraterrestrial life, or any communication from little green men or whatever they are. And we still have absolutely nothing to show for it. How is this possible? That exact question was once asked by famous Italian physicist Enrico Fermi, the creator of the first ever nuclear reactor.

    Music by Epidemic Sound

    - The Fermi Paradox has a lot of potential solutions. The first group is all about two big ideas: The Rare Earth Hypothesis and the idea of the Great Filter.
    - Can you imagine, how much would have to fall into place for an advanced civilization to rise to our level? Let’s just say we hit a jackpot in all categories.
    - Jupiter is hugely beneficial to us. Its mass attracts all the space debris, meteors and comets like a giant vacuum cleaner. If not for it, the Earth would be bombarded with giant space rocks all the time.
    - The size of our planet and its speed of rotation make an optimal day and night cycle. Our planet has lots of chemical elements, crucial for the development of life.
    - Eventually, it’ll have beings that look at the skies from time to time and think that they probably aren’t alone in the Universe.
    - But these intelligent folks still won’t be the ultimate winners of this universal lottery. They still must develop technology to go into space and send signals.
    - Another solution is far more optimistic. Aliens are out there, but we just can’t communicate properly with them.
    - What if they went through a significantly different route in technology; one that’s not even comprehensible for us. What if they did so because their own communication is different than ours?
    - The next solution is far more possible. In basic terms, it proposes that we aren’t alone, but we are the first to advance our civilization to the needed level of technology.
    - There’s also a funny argument that aliens are so unlike humans in their way of thinking that they simply don’t want to communicate with anyone else.
    - And finally, the solution all fans of UFOs want to believe in – they really are common in the galaxy, but they can hide from us and maybe they’re already around us.

  • Where are all the aliens? | Stephen Webb


    The universe is incredibly old, astoundingly vast and populated by trillions of planets -- so where are all the aliens? Astronomer Stephen Webb has an explanation: we're alone in the universe. In a mind-expanding talk, he spells out the remarkable barriers a planet would need to clear in order to host an extraterrestrial civilization -- and makes a case for the beauty of our potential cosmic loneliness. The silence of the universe is shouting, 'We're the creatures who got lucky,' Webb says.

  • Why We May Be Surrounded by Older Alien Civilizations


    Are alien civilizations likely to be younger or older than us in age? A basic question that seems insurmountable until we start detecting them. But even before that, we can use some logical deduction using lifetime distribution statistics to determine the most plausible answer to this question.

    Why does it appear, that humanity is the lone intelligence in the universe? The answer might be that planet Earth is more unique than we've previously assumed. The rare earth hypothesis posits exactly this - that a range of factors made Earth exceptionally unusual and uniquely able to produce intelligent life.

    In upcoming episodes we’ll be exploring the anthropic principle and its two main versions - the strong and the weak anthropic principles. The strong anthropic principle tells us that the observed universe must be able to produce observers - including the contentious idea that this predicts the existence of universes beyond our own. But in today's episode we’re going to focus on the weak anthropic principle. It says that we must find ourselves in a part of the universe capable of supporting us. For example, in a planetary biosphere rather than floating in the void between the galaxies. This may seems tautological, but accounting for this observer selection bias is important to understanding why the universe looks the way it does from our perspective. And the weak anthropic principle is much more useful than that. When combined with the apparent absence of alien civilizations, it may tell us why intelligent life is incredibly rare in our universe.

  • Are we Alone in the Universe? Perhaps yes, and heres why.


    New video with less provocative conclusion here: . Are we alone in the universe? 5 Reasons we are (probably) completely alone in the universe. A government funded program called SETI, or the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence has been listening for intelligent life in the universe, with their radio telescopes, for past 50 years, but so far NOTHING has been found.

    Is it possible that the hundreds of scientists around the world that are looking for intelligent life are on a futile mission to nowhere –because there is actually NO OTHER intelligent species in the entire universe – The shocking answer could be – YES. I’ll explain why.

    There are more stars and planets in the universe than all the sands on all the beaches of the world. How is it possible that we could be the only intelligent life out there. I am talking about intelligent life, not just any kind of life. I think ordinary life is probably everywhere in the universe, and I predict there is life within our own solar system. See my other video on this subject. Intelligent life is a completely different animal, no pun intended, than simple forms of life like bacteria and viruses. There is a good chance that there is NO other intelligent life…and here are 5 reasons why:

    5) Earth has a very large moon compared to its home planet. And this moon was formed due to a colossal impact with another planet early in earth’s history. This collision caused the earth to almost completely melt, which led to molten iron being pulled to the center of the earth. The reason this is important is because it is the flow of this iron that allows earth to have a relatively strong magnetic field. Without this field, life would not exist, because cosmic rays would have wiped out any early life. The moon also gives the earth orbital stability, and has absorbed potential meteor impacts that would have otherwise devastated earth. Such massive collisions are probably rare in the universe.

    4) There was a massive extinction event that occurred on earth about 500 million years ago – long before the age of the dinosaurs.Over 80% of all life on earth was wiped out. But luckily for us, a tiny creature less than 2 inches long, called Pikaia, which had a backbone, survived. This creature is the ancestor of all animals with a backbone – including us. If it had not survived that extinction, we would not be here.

    3) For over a 100 million years, mammals were small mousey shrew-like creatures that lived under the shadow of the dinosaurs. They only came out at night because during the day, they would be easy prey for the huge dominant species of the day - dinosaurs. The only reason mammals dominate the earth today, and by the way, we are the most dominant of the mammals, is because the dinosaurs were wiped out by a huge 6-mile-wide asteroid that fortuitously killed our overlords, about 65 million years ago. It if wasn’t for that lucky asteroid, we wouldn’t be here.

    2) Arid conditions hit East Africa millions of years ago. It didn’t happen anywhere else, but only in East Africa. It so happens, that living in east Africa at that time were tree dwelling apes, that were forced to leave the trees and journey into the grasslands below to find food to eat. Not only did this force these primitive primates to stand upright, which freed up their hands for using tools, but it also forced a huge increase in brain size… Because these animals needed a much bigger brain, and higher processing power to help them find food. We are a direct descendant of these primitive apes. If these arid conditions had occurred anywhere else on the globe, it would not have resulted in us.

    1) There have been millions of species of animals that have lived on earth. In fact, many more animals have gone extinct on earth than are living today. But out of all those species of animals that have evolved nearly every feature and trait that you can think of….only ONCE. That’s right, only ONCE has the trait of higher intelligence evolved. We are the only animals that have ever lived on earth over its 4 billion year life-span, that has evolved to be super intelligent. Intelligence is by no means an inevitability in the course of biological evolution. If it was, then there would have been many such evolutions of highly intelligent species who would have inhabited the earth over its 4 billion year life span.

    Had we not had many strokes of luck and multiple events going our way, we would not be here at all. Thus, it is quite possible that we may be listening with our radio telescopes to complete silence because there is no one else out there…other than us…imperfect humans on a tiny rock…orbiting an unremarkable star…in an ordinary galaxy…in a generic point in the universe. All we have is each other. So, there is a cosmic reason that we should be kind to each other.

  • 3 Reasons We May Be Alone In The Universe


    The universe is a truly huge place and, certainly, our planet isn’t the only one with living things on it, right? It’s tough to say for sure, but here are three reasons that we, in fact, could be all alone.

  • Why We May Be the Only Intelligent Life in the Universe with David Kipping of Cool Worlds


    Are We Alone? Are we the only intelligent life in the universe? Are there alien civilizations?

    Prof. David Kipping of the Cool Worlds lab at Columbia University spoke with John Michael Godlier about his most recent paper. What are the odds for intelligent life? Are there alien civilizations in the galaxy? Or are the odds against intelligent life?

    Prof. Kipping attempts to find answers to these questions using a Bayesian Analysis to look at life’s early start and our late arrival. The rare earth hypothesis argues that the origin of life and the evolution of biological complexity required an improbable combination of astrophysical and geological events and circumstances.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson: Are We Alone in The Universe?


    Neil deGrasse Tyson explains the possibility of life existing elsewhere in the Universe. He explains where the elements that make up life on Earth come from. And how that has profound implications about the prevalence of life in the Universe. Certainly the question Are we alone in the Universe has got to be among the oldest, most fascinating and awe inspiring questions in science that remains unanswered. But Neil deGrasse Tyson paints a very interesting cosmic picture about life itself and why most astrophysicists indeed accept the probability of the existence of extraterrestrial life is high. At the very end he also has what he calls a disturbing and thought provoking question for the viewers.

    So far, the only life we know of is right here on our planet Earth. Yet, there are compelling arguments to suggest we are not alone.
    There are thousands of exoplanets that have been confirmed to exist in our galaxy and the likely number could be in the trillions.

    Given how long life has had to evolve on Earth, it is possible that there are beings on other worlds that are even more advanced than we are. That would certainly have implications for our understanding of the origins of life.

    A new study however, suggests that alien civilizations destroy themselves through progress, meaning our galaxy could be full of dead alien civilizations.

    With a limited understanding of how life originated on Earth, and with so little understanding of what kind of life there is elsewhere in the universe, it is not too surprising we don’t know what we are going to find out there. But it seems very likely that other life will have developed in different ways to that which evolved on Earth.

    So, are we alone in the universe? As Arthur C. Clarke has pointed out “Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.

    The Rare Earth Hypothesis something of a solution to the Fermi Paradox that points to several characteristics of Earth that may be required to keep life stable long enough to become intelligent, and these several traits may be incredibly unique in the universe, making intelligent life in the universe incredibly rare.

    Some of these factors include:

    Special place in the Milky Way
    It turns out our position in the Milky way might be beneficial as the low star density prevents other stars from messing up our orbits.

    The right type of star.
    Our sun is a G2 main sequence star that remains stable for a very long time.

    Rocky planet in the Goldilocks zone
    Earth is just the right distance from the sun to form liquid water.

    Magnetic Shield
    We're the only rocky planet with a magnetic shield protecting us from solar radiation.

    Jupiter and the outer gas giants protect us from asteroid and comet impacts, and this might be rare in the universe.

    Tectonic activity
    We're the only planet with tectonic plates constantly rebuilding the crust.

  • What If Were Alone In The Universe? | Unveiled


    What If We Are Alone In The Universe?

    Voice over:

    What Would Happen If The Sun Suddenly Disappeared?

    The question whether life exists elsewhere other than just on Earth has remained a mysterious one for quite some time. It is doubtful that we are alone taking into consideration the limitless and vastness of the universe. If anything, the last two decades have revealed more to humans about the universe than ever before.

    Many thanks to the Kepler Space Telescope. Discoveries that were made a while back indicate that on average there is one planet orbiting every star in the immense universe. Notably, it is correct to say that there are more than 100 billion planets in our galaxy alone. With a hundred billion galaxies in the universe, the total number of planets in the universe is unimaginable.

    However, to conceptualize how vast the universe is, astronomers believe there are 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (10 to the power of 22) planets in the whole universe.

    The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), for instance, in 2014 discussed the search for Earth resembling planets. These Earth-like planets could be hosting life. The space agency reckoned that in a few decades to come, the suspicions that indeed humans are not alone are going to be proved if not confirmed. In that same year, the Kepler Space Telescope recorded information of planets much like the Earth. The most exciting thing about these planets is that they are in what is called the “habitable zone” of a star.

  • The Fermi Paradox - Are we alone in the Universe?


    The Fermi Paradox - Is there life in our Solar system?
    Is there life in our galaxy?
    Is there life anywhere else in the vast Universe??

    Given the the size of the Universe with an unimaginable amount of stars and solar systems....there has to be life out there somewhere....surely?

    Many of us have often thought......are we alone?
    Is there life in our Solar system?
    Is there life in our galaxy?
    Is there life anywhere else in the vast Universe??

    Given the the size of the Universe with an unimaginable amount of stars and solar systems....there has to be life out there somewhere....surely?

    In 1950 physicist Enrico Fermi asked this question amongst colleagues and quickly went to work on calculations on the probabilities of life existing elsewhere.

    Just in our own galaxy, the Milky Way...... which is thought to contain up to 400 billion stars.... Estimations suggest there are roughly 20 Billion stars composed just like that of our Sun.

    If just 1 in 5 has an earth like planet in orbit within the habitable zone, also known as the ‘Goldilocks zone” where it is not too hot or too cold, that would give us 4 Billion planets that could potentially support life....

    If just a mere 0.1% of these Earth analog planets do actually have life within them.... then this amounts to 4 million life dwelling homes.

    If just 0.1% of these planets contain ‘intelligent life’ comparable to humans....that gives us 40,000 civilisations

    And if just 0.1% of these civilisations we’re capable of space flight and like humans, are explorers who want to expand to other planets, then there will be 40 whizzing about in space around the Milky Way!

    And this is just from using low estimates.

    But the problem is.....we have ZERO evidence that these calculated probabilities are actually happening! And this is the basis of The Fermi Paradox.

    So where are they?

    There are many theories as to why we are yet to detect any other forms of intelligent life...and these include....

    We are the first to emerge with technology capable of transmitting and receiving communications across space and therefor it is currently impossible to make contact.

    Natural disasters such as super volcanos or large asteroid impacts are wiping out developing civilisations.

    Weather conditions and climates on other planets could be too unstable to sustain life long enough for sufficient evolution development.

    Their planet is poor on resources so may never have the ability to progress technologically.

    Other civilisations are choosing not to look outward.

    Maybe we are just not able to detect them through incompatible technologies, using methods and devices we have no understanding of.....or you could say....completely alien to us!

    Other civilisations that may have became capable of communication have already lived out their existence and no longer exist, possibly by destroying themselves through wars, or with much more powerful and advanced technology! But should we be able to see some form of evidence of previous existence in the cosmos?

    Maybe, just maybe we are a fluke, an anomaly, and are the only ones out there....anywhere!

    Or worse yet, we could have been created, physically or virtually, and are currently being observed by a super intelligent species hiding from us, just to see how we develop. We could potentially be some sort scientific experiment that could end anytime!

    It’s a scary thought.

    Whatever the truth actually is......we may never discover it.

    But that will not stop us from trying.

  • ANCIENT ASTRONAUTS: Are We Alone In the Universe? Comercial FREE Movir Rental



  • The eerie silence: Are we alone in the Universe?


    Professor Paul Davies gives this public lecture entitled: The eerie silence: Are we alone in the Universe? on Friday, 18 May 2012 at The Australian National University.

    Paul Davies is a theoretical physicist, cosmologist, astrobiologist and best-selling author. He is Regents' Professor at Arizona State University, where he directs the Beyond Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science -- a cosmic think tank that tackles the big questions of existence, from the origin of the universe to the origin of life and the nature of time.

    Davies also directs a National Cancer Institute research program that tackles cancer from a physics perspective. Among his research accomplishments, Davies helped explain how black holes radiate energy, what caused the ripples in the cosmic afterglow of the big bang, and why life on Earth may have come from Mars.

    Davies has written about 30 books, most recently The Eerie Silence: Are We Alone in the Universe? His preoccupation with deep conceptual problems and his fearless championing of bold new ideas earned Davies the epithet of 'The Disruptor' in a recent profile in Nature magazine.

    His many media projects include presenting two six-part series on The Big Questions for Australian television. He has awards from The Royal Society and the UK Institute of Physics, and also received the 1995 Templeton Prize. In 2007 he was named a Member of the Order of Australia in the Queen's birthday honours list.
