Did NASA Just Find Alien Life? Kepler Discovery Changes Everything

"Machine learning is an approach to artificial intelligence, and shows new ways of examining Kepler data", wrote NASA administrators in a lately issued press release. Also, 30 planets are present in habitable zones, which means that their distance from the neighboring stars, and the stars that they orbit allows them to support extraterrestrial life.

NASA and Google have scheduled a news conference to reveal their findings at 1 p.m. ET on Thursday.

The Kepler telescope recently found ten more planets outside our solar system which could be the size and temperature to support life.

The teleconference will be streamed on Thursday, December 14 at 1pm.

Kepler completed its prime mission in 2012 and went on to collect data for an additional year in an extended mission. It is a requirement for life as we know it.

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.




Exactly what this new method of combing has revealed, we will have to wait until Thursday to see. The mission was successful as it confirmed that there are 2,337 exoplanets that exist, and moreover, 4,496 more possible candidates.

NASA added: "The discovery was made by researchers using machine learning from Google".

In 2014, the spacecraft began a new mission called K2, which continues the search for exoplanets while studying other cosmic phenomena.

So far, the Kepler space telescope has successfully identified over 2500 planets, and over 2000 more are yet to be studied.

Participants in the briefing include NASA Astrophysics Division director Paul Hertz, astronomer and NASA Sagan Postdoctoral Fellow Andrew Vanderburg, Kepler project scientist Jessie Dotson, and Google AI senior software engineer Christopher Shallue.
