Probably not, but they are cagily announcing a rather unusual press conference that has a certain familiar ring to it.
MOFFETT FIELD, Calif. — NASA will host a news briefing at 11 a.m. PDT, Thursday, Sept. 15, to announce a new discovery by the Kepler mission. The briefing will be held in the Syvertson auditorium, building N-201, at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif. The event will be carried live on NASA Television and the agency’s website…
The Kepler mission is focused on finding Earth-size planets in the Goldilocks Zone, where, say, alien life could live. But of course it wouldn’t be alien to themselves, you understand.
Interesting and potentially strange but it gets stranger:
A representative from Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), a division of Lucasfilm Ltd., will join a panel of scientists to discuss the discovery.
Which can only mean one thing, right?
