Google and NASA to reveal mysterious new space find

  • On Thursday, NASA is planning to make a “major announcement” about our quest for new life

"The discovery was made by researchers using machine learning from Google", said NASA in a press release. But it will nearly certainly relate to exoplanets - Earth-sized worlds that orbit around their own stars, and are our best hope of finding alien life. The "internet went aflutter" using his theory in relationship to the odd discovery, Wright said, but he cautioned, "you should reserve the alien hypothesis as a last resort".

The Kepler telescope-which launched in 2009-has discovered thousands of planets outside of our solar system.

The discovery will be announced at a media teleconference on December 14, NASA said.

NASA does not mention aliens explicitly in its description of the telescope's mission, but it does state that Kepler is on the hunt for planets like Earth.

The telescope is presently on its second mission called "K2", and this time, it is more dedicated to discovering exoplanets on a limited basis. According to NASA officials, this startling discovery was made using machine learning sponsored by Google.

Thirty exoplanets exist in habitable zones. It contemplated planets around stars categorized as bright M Dwarfs in the environs of the Sun. This exoplanet-hunting confirmed the existence of 178 further planets, with 515 potential candidates.

In 2014, the spacecraft began a new mission called K2, which continues the search for exoplanets while studying other cosmic phenomena. Later that year, NASA said the "unexplained and weird behavior" was likely a swarm of comets passing in front of the star.

One of the attendees is Paul Hertz, the director of NASA's Astrophysics division in Washington D.C, as well as Christopher Shallue from Google.
