Are we alone? Calculate the number of alien civilizations in three easy steps

BBC has a nice visualization of the Drake equation and how it can be used to calculate the number of alien civilizations in the galaxy.

Today, we live in an age of exploration, where robots on Mars and planet-hunting telescopes are beginning to allow us to edge closer to an answer.

Check it out on the BBC website.
