I have talked about this many times. The universe is so vast that there are innumerable planets with potential for life. But where are the other living things? Why haven’t you seen them yet?
“Where is everybody?” This question is called the Fermi Paradox. Not in the universe. There are hundreds of billions of stars in our galaxy and billions of planets orbiting them. But we have not yet encountered a highly intelligent alien organization. This is a good question, and for two generations scientists have not been able to give a definitive answer. There are many theories about this.

Some say the aliens are hibernating. Or it may be that something mysterious is holding them back. Or maybe they just don’t want to interact with us at all.
Last year, Alexander Berezin, a theoretical physicist at the National Research University of Electronic Technology (MIET) in Russia, submitted an answer that we are “first in, last out.” His paper has not been reviewed by any other scientific community. According to this pre-print report, the existence of extraterrestrials or other living things is very narrow, and interstellar travel is not a mandatory condition for living things.
