Is Virtual Reality the Surprising Solution to the Fermi Paradox?

From time to time, the Singularity Hub editorial team unearths a gem from the archives and wants to share it all over again. It’s usually a piece that was popular back then and we think is still relevant now. This is one of those articles. It was originally published August 20, 2015. We hope you enjoy […]

Elon Musk Is Right: We Can Insure Against Extinction by Colonizing Space

From time to time, the Singularity Hub editorial team unearths a gem from the archives and wants to share it all over again. It’s usually a piece that was popular back then and we think is still relevant now. This is one of those articles. It was originally published October 5th, 2014. We hope you enjoy it!  Why blow billions of dollars on space exploration when billions of people are living in poverty here on Earth?… read more

The 21st Century Is a Wild Time to Be Alive

Last week in San Francisco, Singularity University hosted its first-ever Global Summit. In three days, we heard over 100 science and technology experts give talks in more categories than one human mind can fully process. Whether you attended the conference and need help making sense of the information or missed it and want a taste of the action, I’ve collected Singularity Hub articles on some of the major themes to give you takeaways from the… read more

Are There Other Intelligent Civilizations Out There? Two Views on the Fermi Paradox

Scientists have now discovered a few thousand planets orbiting other stars and, based on these observations, believe there may be as many as 8.8 billion potentially habitable Earth-sized planets in the Milky Way alone. Include stars smaller than the sun and that number increases to 40 billion potentially habitable Earth-like planets. Some take these observations as an indicator we couldn’t possibly be the only technologically advanced civilization in existence—others wonder why we haven’t heard from… read more

Why No Aliens? They Live in Video Game Universes Like a Future ‘No Man’s Sky’

Evidence suggesting that our universe is tailor-made for habitable planets — ones that could reasonably support life — continues to pile up. And as humanity flings cosmos-observing technologies further into the sky, we’re developing a deeper appreciation of just how likely it is that life could have emerged anywhere. So, why is our universe so void of activity when it seems suitable for beings who might create technologies like ours to emerge? Many have speculated… read more

Space and Technology Review: The Search for Extraterrestrial Life

Does life exist beyond Earth? Scientists have a few reasons to be optimistic. For one, there are an estimated 100 billion billion Earth-like planets in our universe. That should get most people’s hopes up. Further, we’re finding evidence of liquid water all over the solar system, and the one thing we know about life on Earth is the need for water. This post explores the probability of extraterrestrial life and what we’re doing to find it. This is Part 4 of our Space GGC Series focused on important issues facing us now: Part 1: Our Home Among the Stars Part 2:… read more
