Are we alone? Where is everybody? DrakeEQ HD (v6.0.1) invites you to partake in a highly visual thought experiment using the stunningly elegant Drake Equation to help answer those very enigmatic questions.
With the equation coupled to a mesmerizing Milky Way in motion, DrakeEQ HD computes civilization count and positions these civilizations in 3D space — computing the average distances between them.
The Drake Equation primarily allows scientists to quantify the uncertainty of the factors which determine the number (N) of “intelligent” extraterrestrial civilizations contained in our galaxy.
N = R* X fp X ne X fℓ X fi X fc X L
