We can’t be alone.

According to the formula that astronomer Frank Drank developed (back in 1961), even if you distort numbers to fractions of reality, there is no chance we are alone in the universe. There is, however, a chance that other life may exist and our civilization (and theirs) may be well gone before any communication can occur between us.

Take a look at this awesome interactive chart that the BBC has up to calculate the possibilities of other civilizations.
