gath ered for his Juncheon address Thursday The equation was his way of ex pressing the mathematical prob ability that intelligent beings from outer space have visited earth Sagan explained that in his equation n stands for the num ber of advanced technical civiliza tions in the universe possessing the capability of intersteller com munication r is the mean rate of star formation averaged over

fraction of planets populated by intelligent beings on which an advanced technical civi lization arises And 1 is the lifetime of this technical civilization Sagan said information in his formula is based on current esti mates by astronomers In making calculations he assigned each symbol an arbitrary numerical value As expressed in numbers Dr Sagan said the formula means that at least a million of the 100 billion stars in our Milky Way galaxy have planets which have developed civilizations capable of travel between the stars ;
