Astronomer Dr. Frank Drake conceived an approach to estimate the number of technological civilizations that may exist in our galaxy. The Drake Equation identified specific factors thought to play a role in the development of such civilizations.

Beyond microbial life, astronomers and cosmology scientists have been searching for intelligent life since the invention of the radio. Author, physicist and CEO, Louis A. Del Monte, has gathered scientific perspectives to address the possibility of extraterrestrial intelligence covered in his webisode, “Extraterrestrial Intelligence”.
“Over five decades ago, astronomer Dr. Frank Drake conceived an approach to estimate the number of technological civilizations that may exist in our galaxy,” explains Del Monte. “The Drake Equation, as it has become known, identified specific factors thought to play a role in the development of such civilizations.”
Del Monte discusses the Drake equation, which is often used to predict finding extraterrestrial intelligent life. Del Monte provides both the optimistic and pessimistic predictions resulting from the Drake equation, and attributes the disparity due to the inherent limitations of the Drake equation. Del Monte then addresses the number of planets that may be capable of harboring extraterrestrial intelligent life in the universe.
Based on the large number of planets orbiting stars in the universe, Del Monte suggests it is highly probable that extraterrestrial intelligent life exists somewhere in the universe, perhaps even in our own galaxy. More about extraterrestrial contact is covered in past webisodes on his YouTube channel, Del Monte on Science.
Del Monte is the author of Unraveling the Universe’s Mysteries, available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and soon-to-be published, "How to Time Travel". You can find articles on Huffington Post, and on his blog, Science Questions & Answers, with links to his Twitter channel, Facebook page, YouTube channel, and LinkedIn profile.
