Incredible stuff, not sure how much is accurate, but it sure is entertaining and interesting - almost addicting.
The highest lotto odds are for the US Power Ball Lotto and are roughly 80,000,000 to 1.
Just as an example, suppose that the odds of life elsewhere in the universe are a million times higher, or 80,000,000,000,000 to 1.
In that part of the universe that has been measured out to 14 billion light years, there are 30 billion trillion stars (suns), or 30,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars.
Assuming odds a million times worse than the Power Ball Lotto, there are 375 billion (375,000,000,000) stars supporting life. Think we're alone?
