On December NASA announced that they have found evidence of extraterrestrial life on Mars and Jupiter.
NASA made a major a public announcement on Thursday, December 2nd, 2010, at 2 PM Eastern time.
NASA first announced that researchers conducting tests in California discovered the first known microorganism that can thrive and reproduce using toxic chemical arsenic. The microorganism substitutes arsenic for phosphorus in its cell components.
“The definition of life has just expanded,” said Ed Weiler, NASA’s associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at the agency’s Headquarters in Washington. “As we pursue our efforts to seek signs of life in the solar system, we have to think more broadly, more diversely and consider life as we do not know it.”
NASA then went out to make an even bigger announcement one that has sent shockwaves around the globe – they have found conclusive, undisputable evidence of life on Mars and Jupiter.
NASA had been teasing the public for weeks about the announcement, saying only that there is a major “astrobiology discovery.” They hinted at the discovery of the microorganism, but they kept the discovery of alien life a secret – until yesterday.
A NASA press release had claimed that the NASA discussion will involve an “astrobiology finding that will impact the search for evidence of extraterrestrial. Astrobiology is the study of the origin, evolution, distribution and future of life in the universe.”
WWN’s own P’Lod was at NASA when the announcement was made. He has been helping NASA identify the different alien life forms that they have discovered.
The news conference was held at the NASA Headquarters in Washington and was broadcast on NASA Television and on the agency’s website at http://www.nasa.gov.
NASA also revealed (and confirmed) that there is, in fact, an alien invasion under way. They did say that the aliens seemed to be “friendly” at this point. “But there are a increasing number of alien spaceships landing on Earth,” the NASA spokesperson said.
New York University astrobiologist, Tom Hillstrom, has confirmed that NASA has been carefully examining pictures from the Hubble telescope alongside a new Google Universe map and have seen aliens walking across the surface of Mars and some were even seen jumping rope.
“The Martians seem to be happy beings,” said Hillstrom. “Hopefully, we’ll be able to learn something from them.”
We’ll see. NASA will be making a follow-up announcement on December 27th, to discuss in greater detail their findings about the alien invasion.
