Have you ever heard of the Fermi Paradox? Scratch that, have you ever heard of Enrico Fermi? Fermi was a brilliant physicist who built an atomic reactor in a squash court. Seriously, the dude was freaking smart. So smart, in fact, that a simple conversation he had over lunch in 1950 has dominated the mind of every scientist at the Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) for decades since.

In 1947, the Air Force began a series of studies that investigated more than 12,000 claimed U.F.O. sightings before it was officially ended in 1969. The project, which included a study code-named Project Blue Book, started in 1952, concluded that most sightings involved stars, clouds, conventional aircraft or spy planes, although 701 remained unexplained.
