NASA To Announce Kepler Discovery Helped By Google Brain

NASA's press release added that the discovery involved machine learning that "demonstrates new ways of analyzing Kepler data", but has remained cryptic about what the rest of the conference is going to be about. But it will nearly certainly relate to exoplanets - Earth-sized worlds that orbit around their own stars, and are our best hope of finding alien life. NASA has called for a press meet on next Thursday to show its significant discovery after searching for life outside our solar system.

NASA's Kepler space telescope is considered the most successful planet hunter known for its accuracy when it comes to finding alien worlds.

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

Kepler completed its prime mission in 2012 and went on to collect data for an additional year in an extended mission. According to NASA officials, this startling discovery was made using machine learning sponsored by Google.

It is thought the announcement will revolve around exoplanets - Earth-sized planets that orbit around their own stars.

Former PSG defender Maxwell, now an ambassador for the Ligue 1 club, said on UEFA's website : "It's a good draw, with two good games to play".

Thirty exoplanets exist in habitable zones. This exoplanet-hunting confirmed the existence of 178 further planets, with 515 potential candidates. This has afforded new opportunities to research not only exoplanets, but also young stars, supernovae, and other celestial bodies.

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

NASA has also provided the live-streaming link to the press conference.
