We live in a universe perfectly suited to our existence, containing galaxies, stars, planets and the building blocks of life. On Earth, life is found in rocks, ice and boiling water, suggesting it would be impossible to destroy, before the Sun becomes a red giant and evaporates our planet. Yet space is silent, suggesting, that though simple life may be common, technologically advanced life might be very rare.

We will present the evidence, then take a closer look at the development of life on Earth, before considering why we might be the only self-aware observers of our universe.
