Why Aren't The Aliens Here Already?

Why Aren't The Aliens Here Already?

By Adam Frank

      The story begins like this: In 1950, a group of high-powered physicists were lunching together near the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Among those in attendance were Edward Teller (father of the nuclear bomb) and the Nobel Prize-winning Enrico Fermi. The discussion turned to a spate of recent UFO sightings and, then, on to the possibility of seeing an object (made by aliens) move faster than light. The conversation eventually turned to other topics when, out the blue, Fermi suddenly asked: "Where is everybody?"

While he'd startled his colleagues, they all quickly understood what he was referring to: Where are all the aliens?

What Fermi realized in his burst of insight was simple: If the universe was teeming with intelligent technological civilizations, why hadn't they already made it to Earth? Indeed, why hadn't they made it everywhere?

This question, known as "Fermi's paradox," is now a staple of astrobiological/SETI thinking. . . .


  1. The aliens are here; been here for a long time. But we just cannot perceive them. It's like a human talking to a cockroach - just does not make sense.

  2. They are here you just can't see them without a mirror and a pentagram.

  3. They have been here since the dawn of mankind, both creations there of, and we know more about them since Z. Sitchen made some of the Sumerian writtings known to us.
    They are also the powers and principalities spoken of in the Bible. Not all are evil, yet some undoubtedly so.
    Lucifer , Enki, and others are our demons and devils today. Betty Luca Anderson was taken to see one underground, apparently dwelling kept in some sort of shiney crystaling structure (I need to reread that book).
    Want to see one? just be awair of your surroundings and of the sky , sooner or later you will undoubltedly. Except now, we undoubltely have our own "anti-grav" craft, so might be harder to tell which is which.
