The Founder of the Drake Equation, Frank Drake Interviewed at SETICon


The SETI Institute organised a 3 day event called SETICon in 2012. During this event there was an interview with the Father on searching for extraterrestial life, Frank Drake. Famed for his Drake equation which was an attempt to calculate the number of intelligent civilisations in the Galaxy. The interview looks back over his career and how the modern explosion of exoplanet research has changed the Drake equation. Well worth the time to sit back and listen to one of the greats.
