NASA will host a news briefing at 11 a.m. PDT, Thursday, Sept. 15, to announce a new discovery by the Kepler mission. The briefing will be held in the Syvertson auditorium, building N-201, at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif. The event will be carried live on NASA Television and the agency’s website

A representative from Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), a division of Lucasfilm Ltd., will join a panel of scientists to discuss the discovery. The briefing participants are:
--Charlie Sobeck, Kepler project deputy manager, NASA’s Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif.
--Nick Gautier, Kepler project scientist, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.
--Laurance Doyle, lead author, SETI Institute, Mountain View, Calif.
--John Knoll, visual effects supervisor, ILM, San Francisco.
--Greg Laughlin, professor for Astrophysics and Planetary Science, University of California, Santa Cruz, Calif


I think that this Panel is rather interesting in the choices of participants from NASA. Strange times maybe this one will actually be worth a watch

OH Hai!
We've discovered another planet that can support human life.
We've already discovered it a while ago and sent missions using super top secret code level pink with dots space craft..... errr I mean this swanky telescope found it.
This will give the government an excuse to release that technology to the public... err i mean the technology will be miraculously invented for us to travel there soon.
LOL

I think NASA is going to "dibbs" the new planets...let the new space race begin!

NASA and seti. Yeah this one might be big. Why are special effects people there? Possibly to create a presentation. If so that's one damn expensive show.

Perhaps they are going to talk about the new super earth they found.

Seti will probably say something to the effect that the planet emits radio waves similar to ours.

Who knows.

Blowing my.mind.

I dont know I think if it was truly major it would come from the White House still it is an unusual choice of participants maybe they are just trying to be less boring than normal.

No the white house would be a bad place to start.

I can just see Obama now saying something that pertains to the newly discovered planet having a robust economy and plenty of jobs. Mind you there might be terrorists over there so be afraid. Plenty of oil though.

Not even. Its going to be another not-worth-announcing miniscule discovery story made to spoon feed the public information like always to see if it can be handled. Either way, I'll be eagerly waiting. Hoping its something amazing.

Then let the new space race begin with this technology...



Not more lousy rockets!

I have been looking foward to the next set of kepler data. The list of people on that panel has me even more excited. Maybe they found something very interesting, and asked the effects company do some cgi work to explain there findings. The inclusion of a SETI representative and an astrobiologist is also very interesting. Perhaps they have found an exoplanet with evidence a biosphere
Maybe we are about to see the first proof of life elsewhere in the universe.

Thats what strange to me as I know that Kepler is excellent for finding planets yet by itself I do not believe that it should be capable of finding evidence of a biosphere. I know there has been talk of targeting SETI to Kepler findings toss in a little ILM to illustrate things? funding?

You cheeky bast*rd! Quite funny mate......you beat me to it.

Plus, I bet Obama Bin Jobben could probably produce a birth certificate showing he was actually born there and could therefore hold office.

Is it normal procedure for NASA to invite a special effects genius John Knoll - to their announcements as a member of the panel?

I’m assuming it’s something to do with the presentation, but can’t imagine why they – NASA – would ask the creator to be on the panel.

He did work on James Cameron’s Avatar, by the way…

To my knowledge no that does not seem normal which is partially what peeked my curiosity

You don't think NASA created all those Blue Beam effects themselves do you??

Thats true, I think I am just getting a little over excited
Im keeping my fingers crossed hoping they have found something with a real WOW factor though.

Well, he does have an interesting history:


Along with his brother Thomas, developed the first versions of the image-manipulation program "Photoshop" in the early 90s.


www.imdb.com...

So perhaps he’s on the panel to state that whatever NASA shows visually, is not Photoshopped!!

He has tenuous links to NASA before, in this documentary:


Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon 3D (2005). Only 12 Have Walked On The moon. This Fall, You're Next!

The film includes historical NASA footage as well as re-enactments and computer-generated imagery.


en.wikipedia.org...:_Walking_on_the_Moon_3D

Also, he worked on Star Wars…AND Star Trek!!

good job I was thinking I should look into what the panelists have been studying recently often that offers a clue. Usually the meat of the presentation comes from the bottom of the list.
