NASA Set to Host News Conference on Breaking Discovery Beyond Our Solar System
Tomorrow (February 22nd) at 1 p.m. NASA are planning to hold a news conference in Washington where they'll present new findings on planets that orbit stars other than our sun, known as exoplanets.
What exactly are these new findings? We have no idea but exoplanets are the best hope for finding life in the universe. It's possible that it's a planet similar to earth, maybe it's a planet that just has water, oxygen or maybe it's a planet inhabiting something we've never seen before. The sci-fi mind like mine can go on and on and on. Seriously, it's just really exciting that there is some sort of break through discovery.
The event will air live on NASA Television and the agency's website. Media and the public may also ask questions during the briefing on Twitter using the hashtag #askNASA.
A Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) about exoplanets will be held following the briefing at 3 p.m. with scientists available to answer questions in English and Spanish.
