Oh, this is very exciting. NASA has just announced a major press conference in two days concerning a significant “Discovery beyond our solar system”.
The only details we have to go on are that it concerns “new findings on planets that orbit stars other than our sun, known as exoplanets.”
That and the fact that the world’s most prestigious peer-reviewed science journal, Nature, has put a complete embargo on all news from this event prior to holding it.
Oh, and all press seats for the event have now vanished.
So, possible signature of organic life detected on an exo-planet? Here’s hoping.
