In the infinite monkey cage of our universe, it is inconceivable like and civilizations do not exist out there amongst the stars. The universe contains two trillion galaxies. Our galaxy contains 300 billion stars. We have already found hundreds of potentially inhabitable planets within our galaxy. But being separated by light years make conversations difficult and our Milky Way galaxy is very big anyway (about 170,000 light-years in diameter).
It took us four billion years to evolve from the origin of life to the civilization we know today. Another planet may begin embarking on the same process tomorrow or they may have inadvertently destroyed their environment and themselves yesterday. Statisticians continue to calculate the likelihood of ever getting to meet other aliens. Yukoners talk of them visiting us all the time.
Join Nicole Bauberger and Heather Von Steinhagen as they explore alien within the Yukon landscape.
