Prof. Brian Cox Explains Why We Haven’t Found Aliens Yet – And It Is Pretty Terrifying

Must read

Famous physicist Prof. Brian Cox has recently made an entry in one of astronomy’s most inquisitive and vital questions: Given the high possibility of intelligent alien life randomly prevailing in the ceaselessly massive universe, why, still, haven’t we discovered any sort of indication of it? What could be the reason?

This question is very old and it was Italian physicist Enrico Fermi, who put forward this question in the 1950s, in what’s now known as the Fermi paradox. He debated there’s inconsistency between the high possibility of alien life existing and the total absence of hard indication that intelligent life has ever developed outside of Earth.
So he famously asked:

 “Where is everybody?”

So, Professor Cox considers that he might finally have the answer. But you will probably not like it.
According to the article published on Sunday Times, Professor Brian Cox said:

“One solution to the Fermi paradox is that it is not possible to run a world that has the power to destroy itself and that needs global collaborative solutions to prevent that.”


Yup, basically there’s a strong possibility aliens wipe themselves out via political chaos before they ever become advanced enough to start an interstellar exploration.
He went on to warn:

“It may be that the growth of science and engineering inevitably outstrips the development of political expertise, leading to disaster. We could be approaching that position.”

  1. There are hundreds of ideas about where are they. Basically all have the same chance of being right. This guy's profession is astronomy so it would seem he had a better chance of being correct than most, but no not really. Not on this question because all we really know is we haven't found them or they us. It's all a great guess. Although everyone and their imaginary friend would say otherwise it's equally possible the whole place is empty of intelligence life, except for us. Prove me wrong. Prove him right. Can't do either.

  2. You are spot on, yes we are the experiment
    I have proof!
    Everything we think we know is a hoax

  3. our obsession with the aliens has reached a level that should give us pause: why don't we get obsessed with ourselves?

  4. What is wrong with you people? There is plenty of proof for, yes – even scientist, that there are lots of extraterrestrials out there. Some have visited, some have stayed, some have left artifacts. Open you mind, your eyes, and do your research.
