The Drake Equation

9 posts in this topic


This is exactly (from my understanding) what this equation is supposed to generate:

The probability that we will come into contact with an intelligent life form we will be able to communicate with is: N to 1

According to wikipedia, and estimated probability is 10 to 1 against.

At least we don't have to make the Heart of Gold to do this.

I still want the Heart of Gold. I don't care what science says, turning into a sofa is better.

I'm quite fond of the "turning into yarn and vomiting up excessive amounts of string" possibility. :grin:
