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?
Videos, explaining things. Like evolution, time, space, global energy or our existence in this strange universe.
We are a team of designers, journalists and musicians who want to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful.

The Fermi Paradox — Where Are All The Aliens?
Help us caption & translate this video!
When you think about how huge the whole universe is, you say that there has to be another life out there. But at the same time.... I feel like we really are alone. But why the fuck is the question. What is the universe for when life has so tiny chance to be created. Well, but then, maybe every star or planet is a living being, it's just something so different we as humans cannot understand. lol
The First Great Barrier: A Type I Kardashev civilisation has insufficient resources to become a Type II. More importantly, it also has insufficient resources to colonise nearby star systems.
The Second Great Barrier: Interstellar Space is really, really dangerous. Astronauts all die well before they can reach a nearby star system.
The Third Great Barrier: All worlds need terraforming (Earth did!), but even if a vessel could traverse interstellar space, it could not carry sufficient resources to terraform its destination.
The Fourth Great Barrier: even if the required means were available, no population is so self-sacrificing as to allow the diversion of precious resources to such an expensive, fraught and uncertain mission, demanding instead that the money be spent on the ceaseless needs of the home planet.
See, economics is a serious downer. Just ask NASA.
They are asking wrong questions, Why expect life on only earth like planet? There can be alive beings in sun, if they were thinking "no one can live on a planet so cold like earth" there can also be life in vacuum. Open your mind, aşk different questions.
Why are we so arrogant to assume that we would be able to notice an intelligent lifeform that would be able to travel millions of light years to our planet. There are literally primitive tribes on islands that we chose not to interfere with in fear we would enivertably disrupt their entire culture. Is it so hard to believe that that we are those primitive cultures compared to beings capable of traveling vast distances?
Maybe there is one super advanced civilization that is too advanced to communicate with us, we still don’t know about it and it is destroying all other civilizations before they get to the stage that they can communicate with us.
if we think universe or our gallaxy as a place then yes it should be an alien civilisation level 3 or even more advanced but universe as far as we know is not a place its time and space bending in our eyes what we see its not actually true it happened before 8 minutes for example the light from the sun takes 8 minutes,when we see a planet 10 millions light years far away or even 10 light years away is like we living in a worm hole were everything is floating everything changes in a millisecond what we see is bend into the light of our eyes we cant see nothing like that....so i think we are alone and the rest of the universe is just evolving arround us just like holy bibble sais.....but if there ever was a chance of an alien civilization to excist the things would be same for them to could not reach us at anyway only with hyperdrive or with a dimensional gate....thats science fiction.
I heard about this thing where we cant observe things super far away because the light that is needed to see dosent just appear instantly. So maybe there is a lvl 3 civilization but we dont know because we are viewing them 100,000 years behind.
Maybe our planets, stars and entire universe is alive and has different kind of life that we can't even comprehend ever
Our poor Earth just developed a disease called humans (and we r damn good at it 😁)
Or maybe Earth developed a defense system to avoid the possible destructive extraterrestrial collisions (at which we r not that good 😑)
Well who knows I'm just a guy who's tapping on a metallic n plastic structure 😝😝
On a serious note: there may b life on other planets in other forms that we just can't comprehend or understand coz we only assume something's living if it got movement, eat n die eventually 🤔🤔🤔
If the Great Filter is the rarity of life..this kinda explain the Multiverses theory... let's say the odds of life developing is 1 to 1trillion. Now.. in order to life develop.. it would take a massive number of tries...
in the 1st universe failed..
In the 2nd failed too..
in the 3rd failed..
and so on...and on
With all the lifeless universes being discarded as garbage. (Well.. not really, they're still there)
But then.. the unexpected happened...
in the universe number 1.000.000.000.000 ..Surprisingly life developed!!!
So .. it's look like is necessary a whole lot of universes to accomplish the life creation.
It goes to a second phase...
Now this particulary living Universe, is treated as a extremely valuable jewel, like a shiny diamond
And from this universe... another incredibly large amount of other universes are being made.
What would be the next extremely rare event to be accomplished?????
Are we lucky enough.. to be in the "awarded" universe? Or .. this universe won't be able to reach next phase and we will be discarded????
When i say discarded .. i mean something like "ignored" or "left out" in the eyes of a God like creature.
This channel supported (not at all) by NASA. Let's hire a fake britt (or not) to narrate our bs videos and maybe people (the awkakened) will stop this no space/flat earth nonsense. Repeat after me kids : science is our god (not)
What if the universe disappear? What is there, is there just nothing??? But bbb but!? It’s like there is someone controlling if I should be able to understand that or not. And I just can’t wrap my head around it. It’s soooo weird 😩. Existence is not understandable, at least I don’t think so🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔
by chance, if someone makes the math, we are not alone. Maybe life is still growing, the filters may not be real, and by "luck" we are ahead, or in the other end of the universe, life has already ended, because of the same things that will eventually kill us, like climate change, nuclear war, asteroids, etc... I dont think life is so hard, it happened here, why not somewhere else?
maybe there are multiple alien species that have gotten to galactic domination, but dont tell the dumber species because seeing the difference in advancement discourages them. Like the ending of the video, maybe its better we dont know
So we are either destined to rule the Galaxy, be destroyed by the reapers when we get too clever, or we destroy ourselves, or we simply haven't discovered aliens yet (officially)...
I highly doubt the reaper theory tho... If space cthulu monsters wanted to prevent intelligent life, we should be dead now. Why wait for a civilization to get stronger, before wiping them out.
So that leaves humans ruling the galaxy and it's other less advanced subspecies, meeting aliens sometime in the near future, entering alliances with them, coexisting Mass Effect style, or we simply nuke ourselves off the face of the Earth.
Next option: time is our perception based on how we decay. Otherwise, it does not work in the way that we think. Gravitational shadows (there’s a better word for that which is escaping me) do impact perceptions of time looking in from the outside. To an outsider all of our history and existence may move by in a breath. Hard to notice something which doesn’t exist long enough.
Another simple version is that our galaxy is impacted by a mega black hole (there’s lots of evidence for this btw) and that there are effects of moving into its gravitational pull which obviates others traveling here. Communications bent across gravity also have problems.
There are many other options that haven’t been thought of. A simple one: we were imprisoned here.
No one answers because that is our punishment. In a universe where life is precious, the greatest punishment you could inflict on a species is abandonment and isolation. Perhaps our obvious genocidal tendencies displayed itself on a more epic scale.
No one ever thinks that are the bad guy.
In 1969 astronomer Frank Drake calculated the Drake Equation, i.e. the number of technical civilizations based on the number and type of planets. It wasn't until the 2010's that we discovered extra-solar planets - about 4,000 and counting. Now we can plug in these numbers into the Drake equation and calculate that the Milky Way has 250 billion stars, one trillion planets and one million technical civilizations - types 1, 2 and 3. Stars Wars anyone?
Can you do a video on the beginning of life. AKA how we got from rocks and volcanoes to plants... because even if there is more CO2 in the atmosphere, how does a green plant/algae develop from nothing. Or, how did the dinosaur suddenly get wings - that is surely one hell of a mutation to occur (so much it'd surely just kill it)
If there is alien life capable of space faring to us it would have managed to gain the kind of peace we have not managed with any global treaty, or war would pull them right back down.
If this peaceful, blessed civilization hovered over our planet they would think “look at all this war, crime, and filth! I’m so glad we’re past that. Hopefully we will one day too.”
So you know that some scientist sent some songs into space. Image you're the alien that found the records and when you somehow figure them out and play them you hear some jazz blues and think its some scary message from the aliens. They would be creeped out
