Classic Hollywood Bloopers
And the greatest Hollywood blooper of all time:
These are WONDERFUL
Remember when Breaking Bad ended their season with a slow zoom into a potted plant and it was simultaneously the most revelatory and upsetting thing that’s ever happened?
The Possibility of Intelligent Life
The Drake Equation is a famous attempt to mathematically estimate the number of technologically advanced civilisations in our galaxy. The equation was formulated in 1961 by Dr. Frank Drake (currently on the Board of SETI), and it identifies specific developmental factors and presents them as variables that narrow down the estimate. The equation looks like this:
N = R* • fp • ne • fl • fi • fc • L
R is the average rate of star formation per year in our galaxy, fp is the fraction of stars with planets, ne is the number of Earth-like worlds within one of these star systems, fl is the fraction of those planets where life develops, fi is the fraction where intelligent life develops, fc is the fraction of intelligent life that develops a technology that releases detectable signs of their existence into space—and finally, L is length of time that these signals are sent. Currently, Drake’s own estimate is that there are 10,000 technologically-advanced civilizations in the Milky Way. Of course, we don’t have definite figures for most of these variables so an accurate answer is nearly impossible, but the calculating itself stimulates intellectual curiosity, helping us realise what a successful product of cosmic evolution we are.
why am i laughing
yoohoo big summer blow out
