As the physicist Enrico Fermi asked, “Where is everybody?” Even though the first interstellar object to be discovered in the solar system, 'Oumuamua, had an unusually elongated shape as might be expected from an alien probe, it does not appear to maneuver and is radio-quiet below the level of a single cell phone. True, a signal from an alien civilization might be subtle or...

Almost all of them are less than 1000 light years away from us - that's far, but is still only 1 per cent of the diameter of the Milky Way. So with so much potential for other life forms around us, why haven't we found any? According to the Sunday Times Brian...

The Olympic motto is faster, higher, stronger. This year’s Games will also be clearer, bigger and closer.
