The Fermi Paradox: Where are All the Aliens? [6:21]


Fermi’s Paradox basically points out that the chances of alien life are so incredibly high that we should have found a few massive galactic alien civilizations by now, but we haven’t.  So why not?  This video explains this paradox using great visuals and then gets into some of the reasons why we haven’t found anything yet.  The video ends musing over the possibility of being alone in the universe.
