A page describing the Fermi paradox: the apparent contradiction between high estimates of the probability of the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations and the lack of evidence for, or contact ...
Famous paradoxes explained in just over a minute, including three physics ones; the grandfather paradox, twin paradox and Schrödinger’s Cat.
Physicist Enrico Fermi, said to be a firm believer in the existence of extra-terrestrials, was frustrated by the lack of firm evidence of their existence. This is an amusing discussion of the problem.
A good clear discussion of the Fermi Paradox which argues that if there is extraterrestrial life they should have found us by now. Written by SETI astronomer Seth Shostak.
Enrico Fermi (1901 - 1954) is recognized among physicists as one of the great scientists of the 20th century.
The Fermi-Dirac distribution applies to fermions, particles with half-integer spin which must obey the Pauli exclusion principle.
Enrico Fermi received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1938 for his work on the artificial radioactivity produced by neutrons, and for nuclear reactions brought about by slow neutrons. A good biography ...
