Why is the cosmos so silent? Why aren’t there spaceships buzzing around over our heads, looking at this blue planet of ours, toasting to our good health?
It’s an age-old question. If life arose on Earth, why don’t we see evidence of it on exoplanets elsewhere in the galaxy?
Of course, the answer to this question depends very much on who you ask. If UFO-lovers are to be taken seriously, perhaps aliens are already among us. Maybe they like abducting cattle and crashing their spaceships in the New Mexico desert because they are big drink fans.
Others have more scientific answers. Aliens aren’t here, they say because the cosmos is vast or there is some “great filter” baked into the cosmos that stops advanced, space-faring civilizations from developing.
Getting back to whiskey, we have a simple question for you: if Elon Musk offered aliens a glass of whisky, would they drink it?
Well, that’s a good question. We think they’d be good sports about it, even if it melted their insides. In the spirit of exploration (no pun intended), they would still want to drink.
Of course, if they could take their drink, that would be even better. Nothing would be funnier than a drunk alien, not even a drunk dog.
So what do you think? Are there aliens out there who would enjoy whiskey on the rocks?
