Subject: Seager's New 'Drake Equation'


Hello List,

An article in the Wednesday 4 September Guardian:

http://tinyurl.com/oekaedp

"The new equation for estimating alien life across the universe"

covers Sara Seager (M.I.T) and her re-jigging of the Drake
Equation, but, as the writer makes clear, although the new
equation is maybe a bit more immediately objective, in fact both
old and new equations consist mainly of unquantifiable factors.

The piece ends with a reminder that a new satellite (TESS)
designed to look for exo-planets should be launched around 2017.


Cheers

Ray D
