The Majority Of People Believe That Aliens Exist According To A New Poll

1B2

The majority of people in Britain, Germany and the USA, believe that aliens exist, according to a new poll.

A new YouGov research on the aliens existence, shows that most in Britain, Germany and the US, believe in living creatures who have the ability to communicate.

More than half (56%) of Germans believe in aliens and men are the best supporters to the theory. People in the UK are the most skeptical and right-wingers think government is hiding the truth.

According to Prof. Stephen Hawking, the search for extra-terrestrial life is “the most exciting quest in 21st-century science” and recently backed the Breakthrough Initiative, a new project  the biggest effort yet to search for extraterrestrial intelligence.

The Fermi paradox is the apparent contradiction between high estimates of the probability of the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations, such as in the Drake equation, and the lack of evidence for such civilizations. The basic points of the argument, made by physicists Enrico Fermi and Michael H. Hart, are:

  • The Sun is a typical star, and there are billions of stars in the galaxy that are billions of years older.
  • With high probability, some of these stars will have Earth-like planets, and if the earth is typical, some might develop intelligent life.
  • Some of these civilizations might develop interstellar travel, a step the Earth is investigating now.
  • Even at the slow pace of currently envisioned interstellar travel, the Milky Way galaxy could be completely traversed in about a million years.

According to this line of thinking, the Earth should already have been visited by extraterrestrial aliens though Fermi saw no convincing evidence of this, nor any signs of alien intelligence anywhere in the observable universe, leading him to ask, “Where is everybody?”
