NASA TO HOLD MAJOR PRESS CONFERENCE ON 22ND FEB TO MAKE MASSIVE ANNOUNCEMENT!
From The Independent…
Nasa is to host a major press conference on a “discovery beyond our solar system”.
The event will see the revelation of major information about exoplanets, or planets that orbit stars other than our sun, according to a release. It made no further mention of the details of what would be revealed.
Exoplanets are the major hope for life elsewhere in the universe, since many have been found that resemble our own Earth and could have the building blocks of life. More of them are being discovered all the time.
lanets orbiting other stars that look to be the biggest exoplanet news since last year’s announcement of a potentially habitable exoplanet around our closest stellar neighbor, Proxima Centauri.
The space agency has set a news conference for 10 a.m. PT Wednesday to officially share the science. The news, which will also be published in the journal Nature, is officially embargoed until the start of the news conference. We’ve seen the research, and while we can’t share details yet, let’s just say it could very easily provide us with new settings for many future works of science fiction.
NASA clearly feels that this is big news, too, because it’s bringing in some heavy hitters from the world of astronomy and planetary scientist like MIT’s Sara Seager, one of the rock stars of the field. NASA astronomers and lead author Michael Gillon from the University of Liege in Belgium will also be on hand, and a Reddit Ask Me Anything session with the scientists will follow at noon Wednesday.
In recent months we have seen an uptick in the amount of news coming to us about exoplanets and its all being leading to this. Just what have they found? Well, dont get too excited, as its most likely going to be something microbial in nature. This disclosure that is now taking place is picking up pace but its still a very gradual process.
Governments know that to release all that they know regarding other civilisations in the universe, the population of the planet would collectively lose their minds!
What do you think they are set to announce?
