Rather than being a one-in-a-million intelligent life form, probability suggests we should be one OF millions spread across as many galaxies. But if that’s the case, we have to ask a very important question: Why haven’t we heard from any of them?

This lecture will explore the case for abundant intelligent life in our universe. Then, we’ll set out to tackle the reasons — from the ordinary to the unbelievable — we seem so alone.
