ONE by one, the empty boxes in the Drake Equation
are being filled in with actual numbers, and it's looking good.
He also tests the validity of the Drake Equation
, which states all the ingredients you need to make an intelligent civilization.
The Drake Equation
works out the science of Star Wars: Apparently it estimates the number of active communicative extra terrestrial civilisations in the Milky War galaxy.
The second half presents the scientific perspective, beginning with how what we know about chemistry and biology on Earth constrains what aliens could possibly be like, and continuing on to the famous Drake equation
and current possibilities for detecting extraterrestrial life.
The well known Drake equation
has been created to help estimate the number of technologically active civilisations in the Milky Way.
I was particularly struck by his section on the Drake Equation
, which cannot yet be precisely solved.
Releasing his 'Why I Don't Have a Girlfriend' thesis after a three-year love drought, Peter Backus, a tutor at the University of Warwick, has used a famous maths formula called The Drake Equation
Starting with the assumption that one visitation per year is the real thing he uses the Drake equation
to determine how many technical civilizations there might be in our Galaxy.
SOCIAL STUDIES: Introduce students to the Drake Equation
, a formula that estimates the likelihood of other civilizations in the universe, as well as the possibility of communicating with them.
A consideration of one factor in the Drake Equation
is particularly troubling: Perhaps it's a common occurrence that intelligent civilizations arise yet inevitably reach a certain stage, equivalent to ours at present, wherein nuclear war starts or a religious cult releases a deadly virus setting that planet back to the level of primitive bacteria.
Guillermo Sanchez on one man's quest to expand the reach of urban America's favorite pastime, playing Streetball; and a Todd McFliker piece titled the "Endless Life on the Road with Drake Equation
From Arthur I Miller's exploration of the development of quantum theory, to Oliver Morton's essay on the Drake equation
, which deals with predicting communication from extraterrestrial intelligences, the authors are a credit to the subjects under their examination.
