Gamma Ray Bursts are huge explosions in the Universe where a tremendous amount of energy is released and vanished in seconds. We are talking of billions of degrees hot. Now, just imagine GRB’s to be more frequent in our galaxy, how would this have affected life in our planet? How is the Antrhopic Principle related to the fact that we still here? I mean, intelligent sentient beings. It makes me wonder about the probability for a GRB to affect us in a negative way, exploding somewhere in our galaxy. If not, do you think that it is a coincidence that we are here talking about this or are we just lucky? The Anthropic Principle would help us argue that we are at a safe distance from GRB’s because of the current status of this planet, that is, a planet with intelligent beings. These explosions have the power to destroy life as we know it, yet they seem to be selective of the galaxies where they occur. Our Milky Way seems to lack the property needed to allow GRB’s. Coincidence? Anthropic Principle in Action?
