Scientists claim we haven’t found alien life because we haven’t been looking hard enough
If intelligent alien life exists somewhere in space it's abundantly clear that we haven't made meaningful contact with it yet. Various scientific bodies have devoted themselves to searching for signs of extraterrestrial intelligence and come up totally blank, but why?
The famous Fermi paradox, named for physicist Enrico Fermi, asks if life is indeed common or even not-super-rare in the universe, why haven't we seen evidence of it yet? After all, we've been gazing into space for a while now, listening with high-powered radio telescopes and sending out our own signals in a feeble attempt at alerting ET to our existence, right?
A new research effort attempts to put all this in perspective and arrives at a simple answer: We haven't found life because we're just not looking hard enough.
