Python program that estimates the number of stars in a given region of space that have extraterrestrial life. Please note that this is not scientific like the Drake Equation or the newer Frank and Sullivan Equation. It is designed to be more of a thought experiment and to make it easier to explain to a non-science audience the odds of extraterrestrial life existing in a region of space, like a spiral arm, star cluster, galaxy or galaxy cluster.

Program is attached in Python and PDF.
