IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE?

Astronomers from the University of Edinburgh have crunched the numbers and now claim that there are an estimated 37,964 planets with life in our galaxy. The calculation used data from the 330 planets known to man and extrapolated the number across the entire Milky Way. The astrophysicist who led the research also promised that as many as 361 of those planets would be home to intelligent civilizations at least as developed as our own and guessed that it will take about 300 to 400 years to achieve contact with one of our neighbours.
