Crowdsourcing into the Furthest Reaches of the Galaxy

document
Summary n the 60s at the University of California, Dr. Frank Drake devised what is called the Drake equation. Basically, the equation works with multiple estimates including the number of Earth-like worlds per planetary system, the fraction of possible communicative planets, and the lifetime of those possible communicative civilizations, etc. resulting in an estimate that there are approximately 10,000 planets in the Milky Way galaxy that could contain intelligent life capable of communication.
Description The project is being run by Dr Jillian Tarter who says, “I’m hoping that an army of volunteers can help us deal with these crowded frequency bands that confuse our machines. By doing this in real time, we will have an opportunity to follow up immediately on what our volunteers discover.”
