MEDIA ADVISORY : M10-157 - NASA Announces Televised Chandra News Conference

WASHINGTON -- NASA will hold a news conference at 12:30 p.m. EST on Monday, Nov. 15, to discuss the Chandra X-ray Observatory's discovery of an exceptional object in our cosmic neighborhood.

The news conference will originate from NASA Headquarters' television studio, 300 E St. SW in Washington and carried live on NASA TV.

Media representatives may attend the conference, join by phone or ask questions from participating NASA locations. To RSVP or obtain dial-in information, journalists must send their name, affiliation and telephone number to Trent Perrotto at: trent.j.perrotto@nasa.gov by 10 a.m. EST on Nov. 15. Reporters wishing to attend the conference in-person must have a valid press credential for access. Non-U.S. media also must bring passports.

Scientists involved in the research will be available to answer questions. Panelists providing analysis of the research include:
- Jon Morse, director, Astrophysics Division, NASA Headquarters in Washington
- Kimberly Weaver, astrophysicist, NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.
- Alex Filippenko, astrophysicist, University of California, Berkeley

Niburu

Sounds interesting. I hope they keep us posted.
I wonder if we'll ever hear the outcome of the conference.

Cheers

They are talking about the Gamma Ray Bubbles bulging out the center of our galaxy. intereseting to hear what they will say

In a different link it's talking about an identified galaxy cluster that is relatively [in terms of space travel] the closest thing to our Earth and could provide much needed information on quasars and the growth of galaxy clusters.

Though I do think it would be nice to get answers from both

That was discovered by Fermilab, not Chandra. Different discovery afaik...

I saw that, but it didn't seem to be that big a deal that they would make another post announcing a live TV conference... NASA lets you know what object it is talking about when it announces a press conference on live TV, unless it is something special. That's what I'm curious about

Here's one definition:
a tangible and visible entity; an entity that can cast a shadow

Certainly I wouldn't think the gamma ray structures would classifiy as an 'object' under that definition. Are they even visible?

Quite interested then if it may not pertain to either of those two things then and something else entirely. Setting up firefox now and can't wait for Monday now.

Pretty sure every time NASA announces a news conference everyone at ATS starts panicking or getting their hopes up and then after the conference it's no longer talked about because of how boring the "news" was.

the phrase...in our cosmic neighborhood... definitely means within the Milky Way,
and my guess would be for a wandering Black Hole to be in one of the Galactic spiral arms
and not the one at Sagittarius A (galactic center)

discovery of an exceptional object

Sounds good, but with NASA, even a ball of ice may sometimes qualify as an "exceptional" object.

A ball of ice visible to an X-ray telescope would qualify as exceptional.


I will go with the speculation that it's a black hole. The reason being that observing a black hole would be a truly big discovery that warrants a press conference, but everyone already "believes in" black holes despite the absence of real observations. They will get better coverage for an "exceptional object" than for a ho-hum black hole.

the sun's binary companion?

I would imagine that if they found anything truly earth shattering, such as proof of alien life or an alien artifact somewhere in the solar system, then the president would be giving the press conference and not NASA.... if NASA is giving the press conference then although it may be interesting to most on these boards it will be disappointing.

I don't know if this is what they are talking about but China released these pictures a day before that announcement and mentioned NASA discovered the objects..

HEY! just maybe this is the kick off of blue beam 37!
Seriously, though, if its infra red they are talking about id say maybe theyve finally confirmed our dwarf companion.
There were certainly earlier reports of such that sort of dribbled away......
There was also some gigantic object headed this way from an earlier thread.....?

I am just curious if they would consider that in our "cosmic neighborhood"....
Seems quite a ways out of town for me but who knows.

My curiosity is peaked for sure!
