Do you think alien life exists?

The Drake Equation

Drake-Equation-def-low-res

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
