Monthly Meeting: Mr. Gary Gilbert – The Drake Equation: Is There Anybody Out There?

Friday, 20th October 2023 @ 19:00 21:00 BST

Our guest speaker for October 2023 is Mr. Gary Gilbert, whose talk is entitled:

The Drake Equation: Is There Anybody Out There?

One of the biggest questions, not just for philosophers, astronomers, astrophysicists or cosmologists but for humanity as a whole is “Are we alone in the universe?”

In 1961, Dr. Frank Drake decided to look at this question through a mathematical lens and devised what has come to be known as “The Drake Equation” – the result of which gives a possible number for how many civilisations might be capable of communication with us via radio signals.

Join us as Gary talks us through this fascinating equation and what it means for life in the universe beyond earth.
