Title Can an alien hunting formula help you find love? Physicist develops a tool based on the famous 'Drake Equation' to calculate how many potential partners are out there for you Media name/outlet Mail Online Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 15/02/22 Description Peter Backus, currently a professor at the University of Manchester, used the Drake Equation in 2010 to predict that there were only 26 women in the entire UK that would be a good match for him - based on appearance, age and intellect.
Despite giving himself a one in 285,000 chance of finding 'the one', Backus met 'Rose' at a dinner with friends and they got married in 2013.
'As someone who loves the topic of aliens, I got really interested in the idea of adapting the Drake Equation into the dating world, as Peter Backus did in his darkly humorous study,' explained Wooding in an interview with DailyMail.com.
