← New Drake Equation To Quantify Habitability?

Quetzalcoatl's Avatar Jump to comment 20 by Quetzalcoatl

The question is whether it's more reasonable to assume that Earth is the only planet with life than it is to assume that other life-bearing worlds are out there. Personally, given the immense number of stars out there , and the possibly even more immense number of planets that are likely to be in orbit of them, assuming that Earth is the only one with life is a bit of a stretch, in my opinion. How common life is: that's another question.
