Where are we going, and is there someone out there?

This week we celebrate 50 year anniversary of the landing of the 1st Man in the Moon, the Apolo 11 mission.

It was our parents generation's largest achievement (as deterring Nuclear War also in the 60's) and I'm glad our generation will replicate it in 2024 Artemis mission, toward making humans a multi-planetary species.

As a child entering to my teens, I thought our space exploration was going to inevitably encounter Alien life (UFOs - Unidentified Flying Objects) as it seems to be found in the skies, and impressed everyone by the classic movies Close Encounters of the third Kind & E.T, both from Spielberg.

This video shaped what I would think as a child could have been the moon landing meeting UFOs

At 11 years of age, I did binge-read books looking for evidence of alien intelligent life and UFOs and
Isaac Asimov was one of my favorite science fiction authors at the time. In my mind lingered thoughts of how to link Area 51, Rosswell, the tone communications with Alien life:

As a grown-up the Multiverse theory and meeting Alien Life fall short on face of the Fermi Paradox

So where are we going? To colonize the Universe and Spread the flare of consciousness and intelligence while at it. For me that seems better that the prospects of Thomas Malthus Population Bomb theory and furthers Ester Boserup and other solutions for the Fermi Paradox.
