Well, yes, it would be interesting to find it here first….
But this calculation isn\’t as bleak as you might think:
The chances of finding intelligent alien beings on other Earth-like planets are tiny new research has concluded.
The likelihood were are not alone and intelligent life has evolved is just 0.01 per cent on each suitable planet according to calculations by one scientist.
Assume that his calculations are correct: does that mean the possibility of intelligent life out there is low? It really rather depends upon how many planets there are out there….and with billions of stars, I\’d say that the probability is really rather close to unity.
That is, the probability on any one planet is low, but the presumed number of planets makes it almost a certainty. After all, we\’re here, so we know that it can happen, don\’t we?
