The much anticipated announcement from NASA was delivered to the American public today at 4 pm. Conspiracy theorists hoped the announcement would confirm the possibility that alien life has been visiting the Earth. Unfortunately, for all of us who love all things paranormal, this was not to be the announcement; however, take hope fellow alien-loving friends, NASA’s announcement brings us even closer to the possibility that alien life will, indeed be discovered!
So, just what was NASA’s big announcement? Well, here you go:
NASA’s Kepler Mission confirms the discovery of the largest amount of planets to date…1,284 to be exact. NASA headquarters in Washington states, “This gives us hope that somewhere out there, around a star much like ours, we can eventually discover another Earth.”
Paul Hertz, Astrophysics Division director at NASA Headquarters, tells us just why this discovery is so important: “Before the Kepler space telescope launched, we did not know whether exoplanets were rare or common in the galaxy. Thanks to Kepler and the research community, we now know there could be more planets than stars. This knowledge informs the future missions that are needed to take us ever-closer to finding out whether we are alone in the universe.”
I don’t know about you, but I have loved all things related to space, since a little girl in elementary school-drawing pictures of the spaceship Saturn V. Now, here I am on the near side of 50, and that love has grown so much the more! Some may say I’m obsessed, and that’s just fine by me. I will be a stargazer until the day I take my flight from this Earth.
