    EXO-Moons - revised Drake-equation?

    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 . . .

    to have an habitable world like in the movie "Avatar", filled with attractive tall blue girls... :-D



    -the moon should not be too close (primary's magnetic field could be deadly )

    -moreover, inner moons can be cursed with extra huge tides TZK TZK

    -instead, outer moons' extra long days and extra long nights seems not a major problem...
