Well...last NASA conference I was all hyped up and they really deceived me. So I won't get my expectations high this time. This can't be disclosure, they have to do it in stages. This could be stage 1.
So what? They're gonna announce they've found abnormal methane quantity on the moon possibly coming from an extraterrestrial bacteria?? Meh...
So, if I had to guess at what NASA is going to reveal on Thursday, I'd say that they've discovered arsenic on Titan and maybe even detected chemical evidence of bacteria utilizing it for photosynthesis (by following the elements). Or something like that. (thx, sippey) Update: According to Alexis Madrigal, the answer to the hyperbolic question in the headline is "no". I'm sad to quell some of the @kottke-induced excitement about possible extraterrestrial life. I've seen the Science paper. It's not that.
