The Drake Equation and its somewhat related Fermi Paradox do not seem to have ever had the benefit from the perspectives of any professional experimental biologist. This is surprising since both formulations involve biology and have been around for over 60 years. The educational background of Frank D. Drake is in astronomy and astrophysics [1]. Those authors most closely associated with the Fermi Paradox include Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (rocket science and astronautics), Enrico Fermi (physics), Michael H. Hart (astrophysics), and Frank J Tipler (mathematical physicist and cosmologist) [2-5]. None of these contributors to the Drake Equation and the Fermi Paradox seem to have had any training, advanced education, nor experimental research experience in biology. This work intends to remedy that shortcoming. But why are perspectives from professionals actively engaged in experimental biology needed to sort through problems associated with astrobiology such as the Drake Equation and the Fermi Paradox?.
