An alien is an intelligent being from a planet other than Earth. It is heavily debated whether aliens even exist or not.

The Milky Way is thirteen billion years old and, about two billion years after the Big Bang, habitable planets were born. Earth is only four billion years old, so that means there have been many planets in between that have had a chance for life (Kurzgesagt). The odds are definitely stacked towards aliens timewise. “Our Earth didn't form until about nine billion years after the big bang. Countless other planets should've formed earlier and given life a chance to get underway, billions or certainly many millions of years earlier than happened on Earth. If just a few of them had spawned intelligent life and started creating technology, that technology would’ve had millions of years to grow in complexity or power” (Anderson).
