On the Possibility of Other Civilizations in Our Galaxy

In this essay Someone called Soter examines the Drake Equation which asks how many technically advanced civilizations exist in our galaxy.

He also looks at the Fermi Paradox which questions why, if there are other technological civilizations nearby, we haven’t heard from them.

If civilizations exist in our galaxy with level of technology at least equal to our own, we might be able to detect some of them using radio telescopes.

And if civilizations exist with technologies far in advance of our own we might expect them to have colonized millions of habitable worlds in the Milky Way, and even to have visited our own planet.

Yet there is no evidence in the astronomical geological archaeological, or historical records that extraterrestrial civilizations exist or that visitors from other worlds have ever been to Earth.

Does that means as some have concluded that ours is the only civilizations in the galaxy ?

or could there be a natural self regulations mechanism that limits the intensive colonizations of other worlds ?

In 1961 radio astronomer Frand Drake devised an equation to express how the hypothetical number of observable civilizations in our galaxy should depend on a wide range of astronomical and biological factors, such as the number of habitable planets per star, and the fraction of inhabited worlds that give rise to intelligent life.

The Drak Equation has led to serious studies and encouraged the search for extraterrestrial intelligence .

It has also provoked ridicule and hostility .
