Scientists say humans are alone in the universe – Daily News

 Humans are alone in the universe and will never meet other intelligent life forms, according to a cosmically depressing new study  Scientists at Oxford University have determined that aliens don’t exist in a report that says human beings are likely flying solo in outer space  Researchers at Oxford University’s Future of Humanity Institute came to the conclusion that humans are alone in the universe while examining the so-called “Fermi Paradox” — which ponders why scientists believe in extraterrestrials despite having zero proof  “We find a substantial probability of there being no other intelligent life in our observable universe, and thus that there should be little surprise when we fail to detect any signs of it,” researchers say in the report, published in the online journal Arxiv org earlier this month.  There’s likely no intelligent life outside of Earth — so there’s no need to waste time theorizing about humanity’s relationship with aliens, notes the paper, dubbed “Dissolving the Fermi Paradox ”  The paradox, named after physicist Enrico Fermi, questions how there could be “a high probability” of extraterrestrial life when there’s no solid proof  “Where is everyone?” Fermi asked in the 1950s while pondering the possibility of interstellar travel  Past scientific theories have said alien civilizations may be living in our galaxy based on seven factors — including the position of star formations and how long creatures are able to survive  But Oxford researchers Anders Sandberg, Eric Drexler and Toby Ord say the simplest solution is likely the truth: There’s no one else out there  “There should be little surprise when we fail to detect any signs of [aliens],” it notes  On the brighter side, those fearing an alien invasion can now rest easy.

  1. Actually they said in our visible universe, further out they don't have a clue, how would this explain several military encounters , on video, with some ufos doing maneuvers far advanced then we are capable of ?? But I believe nothing visible in our known universe, besides a bunch of ufos being spotted all over the place!! What are they if not et???

  2. The outrageously high number of unlikely cosmic and earth related things that had to come together to create humans makes this absolutely credible. I love how supposed aliens have our shape and similar thought processes (i.e., conquer the Universe or save mankind from itself). A repeat of what happened here makes the likelihood even more outrageously impossible. Also, a UFO is something unidentified and YET TO BE scientifically explained. It DOES NOT mean an extraterrestrial life form. I adhere to the Asimov view on ETs instead of the Roddenberry view though I do love Star Trek. In Asimov's world humans colonize the galaxy and it is their descendants who are the ETs while Earth is long forgotten and destroyed. This is why we must pursue space exploration and not wait on some ET to come and save us. It just ain't gonna happen.

  3. Well even if there are other civilizations out there the distances are so vast we might as well be alone. I think the best we can probably ever Hope for is some random radio signals that are thousands of years old
