|The Fermi paradox was
established in 1950 by the physicist Enrico Fermi. He
was concerned with the probability of intelligent alien
life and therefore with the question: Are we humans the
only technologically advanced civilization in the
Due to the age of the universe and its high number of stars, intelligent life should also be possible and widespread outside the earth. Prerequisite is: The formation of life on Earth is not an unusual process or a galactic accident or isolated case (see also axioms in Chapter 4).
On the way to lunch at Los Alamos National Laboratory, in 1950, Enrico Fermi discussed this topic with Edward Teller, Emil Konopinski and Herbert York on the basis of alleged UFO sightings. He asked himself: "Why can neither spaceships of other space inhabitants nor other traces of extraterrestrial technologies be observed from Earth." The paradox can therefore be represented as follows: "The widespread belief that there are many technologically advanced civilizations in our universe, combined with our observations suggesting the opposite, is paradoxical and indicates that either our understanding or our observations are erroneous or incomplete."
Or in short: If there are aliens, why haven't they already landed in public?
