Thursday: NASA Announces Alien Discovery!

(Disclaimer: This announcement could be as mild as "New method for tracking Earth-sized planets established" or as wild as "ALIENS CONTACTED US! HOLY CRAP PEOPLE!")

There'll be a live news conference on NASA TV tomorrow (Thursday) at 11:00am Pacific / 1:00pm Central / 2:00pm East Coast time entitled, "News Conference on Astrobiology Discovery; Science Journal Has Embargoed Details Until 2 p.m. EST On Dec. 2."


Click the image to see more of Wayne Barlowe's Darwin IV aliens from his fantastic book, Expedition.

More info on the NASA website.

Did you read James Gunn's The Listeners? I'm just sayin'.

Oh wow, that would be awesome if they announced that they found alien life somewhere.

Hah, I own the Barlowe book, and didn't know that it's worth that much.

Of course, I've read THE LISTENERS.

Keeping my fingers crossed!

And wow, I hadn't looked at what they're charging for the book. Yowza. I should treat mine better ;-)

Gizmodo is leaking that it's arsenic life. Ask any SF reader, and you'll hear a lot of, "Of course life elsewhere in the galaxy doesn't have to be like life on Earth." Still, big news to get verification like that!

If that's what it is.

I sure will! But you can watch it on teh interwebs, I do believe, on NASA TV.

If we get caught using too much bandwidth on the interwebs at work, we get karate chopped in the head.

Bastards. Don't they know this sort of thing is HUGE?

I'll surely post a follow-up when I know more!

Check out NASA TV - that's what I'll be doing! I have no TV, either.

I'd love to hear more about that! But I'm afraid it'll be simpler, as Gizmodo is reporting.
