The Drake equation is not a law of nature, but an educated estimate of the number of intelligent civilizations we can discover, but it is enough to stimulate the imagination.
According to the researchers: "The method is indeed very effective, but it is not always safe either. Sometimes chromosomes that have been cut in the procedure fail to recover and the stability of the genome is undermined - something that in the long run may even cause cancer"
The Drake formula was an attempt to calculate the probability of intelligent life on other planets. But human history shows that the formula was probably too optimistic, and that there is something missing in the calculation. This missing parameter could be critical to understanding the development of intelligent life in the galaxy, and more importantly: the development of humanity, and its chances of survival
