Fermi Paradox: Into the Void

The Fermi Paradox asks us where all the alien civilizations are? Today we will ask if the might be hiding in the Voids, from those between the stars to the massive Supervoids like the Boötes Void. Could they be home to Extraterrestrial Empires so large they dwarf even Kardashev-3 Civilizations?

Reclaiming the Deserts

Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/

We will investigate the available options, and consequences, with both modern technology and those which may emerge in the future.
