NASA To Announce Kepler Discovery Helped By Google Brain

Kepler telescope Alien Hunting Telescope

Nasa has said little else about its latest discovery, although added it was made with the help of Google artificial intelligence. Kepler has spent the last several years collecting data on thousands of nearby stars in order to find planets orbiting around them.

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

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.

The agency said the media teleconference will be held on Thursday at 1 pm EST (1800 GMT) to talk about a discovery made by the Kepler space telescope, which was launched in March 2009 to search for alien worlds.

Kepler's initial mission was completed in 2012.

Australia and Austria Legalized Gay Marriage
The move comes after nearly 13 million Australians (79.5%) voted in the country's non-binding postal ballot to endorse the law. Australia joins about two dozen countries around the world, including Germany, which have legalized same-sex marriage.

As the search for alien life becomes more intense and reaches newer dimensions with more mysterious, unexplained evidence surfacing, NASA has chose to make a big announcement over the findings of extraterrestrial life. Google's machine learning approach to artificial intelligence is considered the world's pioneering application in the field. This exoplanet-hunting confirmed the existence of 178 further planets, with 515 potential candidates.

According to the press release, K2 is "introducing new research opportunities to study young stars, supernovae and other cosmic phenomena". The telescope has been instrumental in the discovery of 2,500 planets with approximately 2,000 more to be studied.

Experts from NASA and Google will be on hand to explain the latest breakthrough.

However, its decision to call a press conference suggests this could be a more significant discovery.

Christopher Shallue, an engineer with Google AI and Google Brain wil be featured during the NASA press conference alongside scientists from NASA, its Kepler team and NASA Sagan Fellow Andrew Vanderburg from the University of Texas.
