NASA Readies Big Announcement on Possible Alien Life

Likely, NASA teamed up with Google to build an algorithm for finding more exoplanets inside that untouched Kepler data, and this Thursday's announcement will reveal the first results.

Astronomers have been searching for rocky planets like the Earth in the Goldilocks zone of other stars in the universe to find worlds that can support extraterrestrial life.

NASA's planet-hunting Kepler space telescope has made its latest discovery using machine learning from Google, the United States space agency said.

The crew at the Kepler Space Telescope has been hunting for alien life since 2009, and now they have discovered something spell bounding.

"The discovery was made by researchers using machine learning from Google", NASA officials said.

'Machine learning is an approach to artificial intelligence, and demonstrates new ways of analysing Kepler data'. The telescope has been instrumental in the discovery of 2,500 planets with approximately 2,000 more to be studied.

The press conference, which will be live-streamed on its agency's website, will take place on Thursday (December 14).

"When Kepler launched in March 2009, scientists didn't know how common planets were beyond our solar system".

This prompted one Nasa researcher so hint that aliens could be out there somewhere.

NASA is going to hold a press conference regarding the Kepler mission.

In its initial mission, Kepler surveyed just one patch of sky in the northern hemisphere, measuring the frequency of planets whose size and temperature might be similar to Earth orbiting stars similar to our sun.

The telescope is presently on its second mission called "K2", and this time, it is more dedicated to discovering exoplanets on a limited basis.

In 2014, Kepler started on a new mission, known as K2, to look for exoplanets and introduce "new research opportunities to study young stars, supernovae and other cosmic phenomena". The news release contained a briefing of the discovery, which mentioned Google's AI was key to the findings.
