Seen Any Aliens Lately?

On June 22, I told you about the Kurz Gesagt videos that combine science, minimalism, colors and music to tell stories.

The video of theirs that I share today uses the Fermi Paradox to explore why, with trillions of stars and even more planets, we may think that there should be aliens, but where are they? And is it possible that if we haven’t seen them, there probably aren’t any?

More importantly, what does this tell us about our own fate in this gigantic and scary universe?

Incidentally, when we look at the incredible vastness of space, it seems reasonable to assume that space travel is best left to science fiction.
