Are we alone in the Universe?

The Drake Equation is used to calculate the likely number for civilisations in the Universe

This is a question that scientists have been asking for hundreds of years. We are now almost certain that there is life elsewhere in the Universe; there are more stars in the Universe than there are grains of sand in all the beaches of the entire Earth. If only a small proportion of these stars has planets and only a small proportion of these planets has the conditions for life that still leaves thousands of possible lifeforms in our galaxy.

  1. I believe there Is life elsewhere in the universe because they wouldn’t make movies on other life just because. Also whenever thought of an “alien” mostly on cartoons it is usually the same figure and the character always looks the same throughout every cartoon. Eg. Big head not wearing clothes big beady eyes and usually slimy and in a UFO. And there is also a place called Area 51 where it is said there may be this other life form.
