How Many Alien Civilizations are Out There? There’s Actually an Answer!
Arrrgghhhh, NO THIS NOT THE VIDEO. Mashable did the old switcharoo on this vid. Shame on you Mashable! If you find the video I originally referenced, please let me know… 🙂
So apparently nobody believed my college paper back in 1986 when I made the simple calculation of billions of stars must mean lots of possibilities for the existence of life on other planets. Oh sure, along comes a reputable scientist and that smart guy, Carl Sagan, and pretty soon we have a formula and a brainiac telling us approximately how many planets there are out there.
You’re welcome smart guys for my laying the ground work… not sure how you got a hold of that paper since it’s already hanging on my wall next to my certification of owning a sweet desert valley on Mars from that salesman who foolishly sold it for a couple hundred bucks.
Anyway, if you’re wondering, I guess there’s a handful of planets that are probably already keeping tabs on us. 🙂
