Lesson 4- Maxwells and Drakes Equations.

Author: Tyler Zwink

There are Many doubts about of the Universe, Including- WHAT???? The World Goes around the sun?, The ( atomic ) bomb will never go off,and More, 

We Should know this, but A Long time Ago these doubts were said, Today, I will Show to Equations that, even though old, Revoultionized Physics

Maxwells Equations- A long Time ago, Michael Faraday, discoverd ElectoMagnitism from shooting a current of Electricity through a Wave of Magnitism, and Later Ruled as one of the four forces, Later Maxwell was Interested in Faradays work, and wondered what Experiments he Could do with this, ElectroMagnitism, and he wondered what would Happen if Electric waves and Magnetic waves would do if they formed a Lattice. He Caculated the speed of the Waves and Found it to be the Speed of Light!!! and thus it was, the Secret of Light.

Drakes Equation- A Fairly Long time ago there was a Man named  Professor Drake and he Wondered, Is there really life out there??? and if there was, Could it Communicate with us????? So he put his Mind to Work,He Eventually Came up with this Equation-

The Drake equation states that:
N = the number of civilizations in our galaxy with which communication might be possible;
R* = the average rate of star formation per year in our galaxy
fp = the fraction of those stars that have planets
ne = the average number of planets that can potentially support life per star that has planets
fℓ = the fraction of the above that actually go on to develop life at some point
fi = the fraction of the above that actually go on to develop intelligent life
fc = the fraction of civilizations that develop a technology that releases detectable signs of their existence into space

L = the length of time for which such civilizations release detectable signals into space[4

So, only Certain kinds of Microbes Live on other planets, Now there is more to this Equation, but you get the Picture Right? For More go to:                              

The Secret of Light and the Drake Equation Revolutionize Physics,

Members I encourage you to Conduct/Discover a Key to the Universe
