Hi
Thanks for a GREAT podcast!! :-)
I guess it is because exo-moons are too hard to find yet, however, why does nobody talk about exo-moons but only exoplanets? Looking at our own solar system, there are most places with likelyhood of life on moons rather than planets - thus would the Drake Equiation not need a revision, to take the number of potential exo-moons into consideration when calculating potential number of civilisations?

Kind regards
Karsten

Karsten, welcome. Two very thought provoking posts on your furt day!

Yes,I think it does. I have no faith in the Drake equation, so let others tackle it.

Now off to your other thread . . .
