Do you think alien life exists?
The Drake Equation
N = R* x fp x ne x fl x fi x fc x fL
N – how many planets of aliens there areR* – the rate of star formation in our galaxy (Stars per year)
fp – the fraction of stars that have planets around them
ne – the fraction of stars with planets that are capable of sustaining life
fl – the fraction of planets in ne where life evolves
fi – the fraction of fl where intelligent life evolves
fc – the fraction of fi that try to communicate with other planets
fL – the expected lifetime of such a civilization in years
