Editorial Reviews


'Now, over a half century after Drake’s original formulation, Douglas Vakoch and Matthew Dowd have brought together a group of scholars to assess the equation’s place in the history of astrobiology … the Drake equation may reveal as much about the historical epistemology of science as it does about the ongoing search for a way to communicate with intelligent life in the universe.' Greg Eghigian, Isis

Book Description

Leading scientists and historians explore the equation that guides modern astrobiology's search for life beyond Earth.
