NASA to Announce Discovery of Alien Life on Another Planet
NASA is going to make a revolutionary announcement. The announcement may be about discovery of alien life on another planet.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is going to hold a press conference to announce a breakthrough discovery.

Little information is available about the announcement. Speculation is that NASA might have discovered alien life on another planet!

The announcement will be made on Thursday at 6 P.M UK time and 1 P.M USA time. Moreover, the press conference will be led by four outstanding scientists.

REAL LIFE. REAL NEWS. REAL VOICES

The list includes:

  1. Director Paul Hertz (NASA Washington Astrophysics Division)
  2. Christopher Shallue (Google Al Software Engineer)
  3. Andrew Vanderburg (Astronomer)
  4. Jessie Dotson (Kepler Project Scientist)

The Kepler Mission is an attempt to find planets similar to that of Earth. Additionally, this is done with the help of The Kepler Telescope.

The Kepler Space Telescope has been searching for other planets since 2009. It is designed to analyze the intensity of light of stars present in the universe.

When some planet passes by a star, the brightness of the star changes. This phenomenon helps NASA to study further about that mystery planet revolving around.

The telescope works to identify planets that orbit the stars similar to the sun in the “habitable zone.”

The habitable zone means areas around the star which have suitable temperatures for the existence of water.

The Kepler Telescope discovers planets called exoplanets. An exoplanet quite literally means a planet which orbits around a star outside the solar system.

The telescope has already revealed that there are many exoplanets. The incredible gadget has found over 104 new planets.

It is an extremely powerful machine. The Kepler has the biggest camera ever launched in space.

The telescope (which is in space) can even detect a person turning off their home light at night in a small town on earth. Wow!

According to information released till now, artificial intelligence has a huge role to play in the discovery. Moreover, NASA revealed that “the discovery was made by researchers using machine learning from Google.”

Also, Google’s Artificial Intelligence allowed NASA scientists to analyze data obtained from the Kepler Telescope in new ways leading to great revelations.

The spectacular invention is named after astronomer, Johannes Kepler. Kepler discovered the laws of planetary motion. Also, he was the revolutionary man behind confirming that the planets did not move in the circular, but in an elliptical motion.
