WASHINGTON -- NASA will hold a media teleconference Thursday, Aug. 26, at 1 p.m. EDT to discuss the Kepler spacecraft's latest discovery about an intriguing planetary system.
Kepler, a space observatory, looks for the data signatures of planets by measuring tiny decreases in the brightness of stars when planets cross in front of, or transit, them. In June, mission scientists announced the mission has identified more than 700 planet candidates, including five candidate systems that appear to have more than one transiting planet."
So at 6pm (British time GMT) tonight we'll get news of the announcment. Bit annoying because i wanted to read about it in work. A lot of speculation as to what it might be some people even saying its just a publicity stunt and it wont be anything too big. But of course others saying its the end of the world, aliens incoming. Possibly bringing with them, Cthulu the high priest of the great old ones.
