Are we alone? Where is everybody?

More than a Drake Equation calculator, **DrakeEQ** (v6.0.1) provides a *simulation* of the extraterrestrial question. Use this** **fun simulator to **graphically** quantify the number of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations in our Milky Way Galaxy.

**Are we alone?:** **DrakeEQ** computes/displays civilization count and draws them to the display.

**Where is everybody?: ** **DrakeEQ** approaches the Fermi Paradox by positioning the civilizations in 3D space and computing the average distances between them.

**DrakeEQ** is both educational and entertaining. And at nearly 8 years running, **DrakeEQ** is one of the longest continuously supported apps on the entire App Store!

Learn about the famous Drake Equation through direct manipulation of its 7 parameters. Easily tweak equation variables using fun drop-down manipulators.

It’s available on the iPad too!
