With the progress NASA has made this year regarding the search for extraterrestrial life and the likelihood of ET life increasing ever since water was discovered to be far more abundant than previously thought, they have just announced on their press release page that they will be holding a conference on Thursday, December 2nd regarding a find that will impact the search for extraterrestrial life forever. The move has many people wondering just what they could mean.
The Conference, which will be held at 300 East State Street in Washington will not only be made to reporters who come out to report on the mysterious find, but also be broadcast via satellite television and their own https://www.nasa.gov/. Though none of us are sure just what the incredible find could be, after their announcement earlier this year we are certain that it will be a major one.
Last month NASA made a similar announcement and held a press conference, and as we shared then, they came forward with a discovery of a new black hole being observed for the first time just forming in our own cosmic neighborhood. The find will have long lasting effects on how we view black holes, gravity, and a number of things in our universe. And now with this latest announcement, many people are suggesting we may be looking at an a discovery that could prove, disprove, or at least solidify the argument for an extraterrestrial presence in space.
What clues does the announcement’s place carry with it along with the people making the announcement? Surprisingly very little. The Space Program is keeping a fairly tight lid on this one, however, which is often indicative that whatever they will be announcing could have a major impact. The timing of this announcement just after Wikileaks has come forward with so much information regarding the State Department just goes to show how much news can change our everyday lives. And it has been suggested in several circles that follow NASA regularly that an announcement addressing the existence of extraterrestrial life is indeed rare and quite possibly major.
Those taking place in the announcement will include Mary Voytek, the director of the Astrobiology Program in Washington, Felisa Wolfe-Simon, NASA’s astrobiology research fellow with the US Geological Survey in California, Pamela Conrad, an astrobiologist with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Steven Benner with the Foundation for Applied Molecular Evolution in Gainesville, Florida, and James Elser, a professor at Arizona State University in Tempe Arizona. The credentials of these distinguished scientists may be the only clue we currently have to show us just what exactly the announcement could be regarding.
