    I had never heard of Gene Ray. Quite a character.

    "We find that as long as the probability that a habitable zone planet develops a technological species is larger than ∼10−24, humanity is not the only time technological intelligence has evolved."

    Fortunately, the universe is so big we probably won't meet any of them.:)

    The Internet is just full of strange things!

    When I was a kid...maybe 8 or 9 years old...and read about the universe, solar systems, ant colonies, and molecular structure, I would imagine that there was an infinite number of worlds of an infinite number of sizes each contained within a larger one. Then, I went to school and was taught how stupid I was.

    It seems like there are an infinite number of atoms, stars, planets, and solar systems, just not inside each other.:p
    They aren't really infinite, but they are way more than you (or I) will ever count.

    I Carl Sagan's word for it. Numerous, numbers so vast that as far as us limited humans are concerned, they are infinity.
