I always felt the original Drake's Equation was a little basic.
The neccessities for life in the universe will never really be calculated until we eliminate or confirm some of the possibilities.....
Is it neccessary for a planet to have a moon, a similar gravity, be a similar distance from a single sun, what chemicals and elements need to be
present etc, etc, etc.....
Gotta love Mr Sagan though and all his fantastic and inspirational perspectives. His programme "Cosmos" certainly changed how this bundle of carbon
and water sees things.
I can't wait to hear more about this new equation.
Cheers for the thread.
