About Fermi paradox in brief
Enrico Fermi’s name is associated with the paradox because of a casual conversation in the summer of 1950 with fellow physicists Edward Teller, Herbert York and Emil Konopinski. While walking to lunch, the men discussed recent UFO reports and the possibility of faster-than-light travel. During lunch Ferm i allegedly said suddenly, \”But where is everybody?\” The result of his question was general laughter because of the strange fact that everybody around the table seemed to understand at once that he was talking about extraterrestrial life. In 1975, Michael H. Hart published a detailed examination of the paradox, one of the first to do so. He argued that if intelligent extraterrestrials exist, and are capable of space travel, then the galaxy could have been colonized in a time much less than that of the age of the Earth. However, we see no evidence they have been here, which Hart called \”Fact A\”. : 6Other names closely related to the question include the Great Silence, and silentium universi, though these only refer to one portion of the FermI Paradox, that we sees no evidence of other civilizations. In 1984, York wrote in that series of calculations on the probability of life, given an earth, given the likely rise of humans, and the high duration of life on earth, the probability of humans given an Earth-like planet being visited by ETs was given as 10–6.
He concluded on the basis of such calculations that we ought to have been visited long ago and so on, and on the high probability of such technology, and so many times over, on long distances over many times. He also concluded that perhaps this statement came from a conversation that was not much of a conversation, except perhaps that perhaps a high number of humans were on the earth at the time of the visit. In the same 1984 article, York also wrote that the conversation that came from this conversation was perhaps a much higher probability of humans being on the Earth, given that humans are on an earth-like planets, and given the high likelihood of humans on an Earthlike planet, on many long and long times over. In this article, we highlight some of the facts that together serve to highlight the apparent contradiction: There have been many attempts to explain the paradox.

In the U.S. Ferm i was not the first to consider this question, but he was the first to suggest that we may not yet be ready for higher beings to contact us.
