The SETI Institute is now on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. APP Design for SETI Institute by Robert Moore (JohnAvatar.com) "What do we need to know about to discover life in space?" To help you answer that and many other questions, included within this APP is a full custom SETI Web Browser and the Drake Equation Calculator. The Drake Equation, as it has become known, was first presented by Dr. Frank Drake in 1961 and identifies specific factors thought to play a role in the development of such civilizations. Although there is no unique solution to this equation, it is a generally accepted tool used by the scientific community to examine these factors. SETI Institute MISSION STATEMENT The mission of the SETI Institute is to explore, understand and explain the origin, nature and prevalence of life in the universe.
