This quandary has actually become called the Fermi Paradox.
Researchers have actually used myriad possible responses to the concern, consisting of that aliens are hibernating or pondering concealing from us. Some scientists have actually likewise recommended that extremely advanced technological civilizations ruin themselves prior to they have the chance to get in contact with other smart life in deep space.
