Guest question from p vs np who seems to be busy fragging his sem end exams one after the other :P

Equation 1. was given by 2. as the proof of validity for what may seem a concept too far fetched in his ‘pet-creation’. The equation was “inspired” by the one given by 3, which happens to be higher up on the scale of seriousness.
Solve 1 through 3 and also throw in the “concept”.

Answer:

Quoting p vs np:

2. is Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek.

He gave equation (1), “inspired” by the original Drake equation, given by Dr Frank Drake (pic 3), which speaks of an estimate of the number of extraterrestrial civilizations in our galaxy with which we might come in contact.

Eqn 1. was Roddenberry’s way of justifying the numerous civilizations found in the Star Trek series and (as Dibyo points it out) the fact that mathematical prowess is not a natural thing in entertainers :P

    (2)roddenberry used frank drake’s(3) propah equation (1)(that latter devised to estimate number of technologically sophisticated cultures in ze ooniverse)to piTCH the idea that alien life form may exist.but he didn’t remember and made up his own thing and that too surprisngly worked.

    1. Roddenberry’s ‘invented’ Drake Equation
    2. Gene Roddenberry
    3. Dr. Frank Drake

    The Drake Equation measures the conditions of probability of intelligent life existing on a planet, which GR was forced to ‘devise’ ‘cos he didn’t really know how to access the original.

    Gene Roddenberry (2) had come up with his version (1) of the Drake (3) equation.

    (1) is Gene Roddenberry (2)\’s version of the Drake equation, trying to prove the multiplicity of star faring civilizations shown in Star Trek. (3) is Dr, Frank Drake, the creator of the original equation, which was meant to estimate the number of extra-terrestrial civilizations in our galaxy with which we might come into contact.

    1.The drake (not drake :) ) equation used by Roddenberry (2) in his star trek franchise . The correct and actual drake equation was originally given by Frank Drake(3) of SETI

    Drake equation

    The equation was cited by Gene Roddenberry as supporting the multiplicity of starfaring civilizations shown in Star Trek, the television show he created. However, Roddenberry didn’t have the equation with him, and he was forced to “invent” it for his original proposal


  7. Rithwik K

    This equation was cited by Gene Roddenberry(2) as supporting the multiplicity of starfaring civilizations shown in Star Trek, the television show he created. However, Roddenberry didn’t have the equation with him, and he was forced to “invent” it for his original proposal and was inspired by Drake equation created by Frank Drake(3)


  8. 1. A “cooked up on the go” version of Drake’s equation, created by 2. Gene Roddenberry. 3 is of course the SETI guru Dr Frank Drake.

    Roddenberry ‘created’ this equation as a part of his sales pitch to the stuidios for Star Trek.


  9. sappola

    1 is Gene Rodenberry’s reworked version of Drake’s equation for justifying the number of civilizations in Star Trek.
    2 is Gene Rodenberry
    3 is Frank Drake

    Outstanding stuff – in the same week that I borrowed the entire Star Wars Marvel run from the library.

    Gene Roddenberry & Frank Drake, and Roddenberry’s stupid version (to the power of 1?) of Drake’s equation.

    As of May 12, I have 9 correct – so there’s something wrong in the scoring.


  12. KRIK

    THIS IS A DUMMY OR FALSE VERSION OF DRAKES EQUATION CREATED BY GENE RODDENBERRY OF STAR WARS FAME .IT APPEARED IN THE EPISODE STAR TREK VOYAGER THE FUTURES END AND WAS ORIGINALLY PROPOSED BY DR FRANK DRAKE OF SETI FAME

  14. @Dibyo: Yes, we have not updated points for a few questions. Should be fixed soon.
