I certainly hope for once that this is not just another DUD! I am tired of the big anouncements to things we pretty much already know (Thank you interwebs).

Still I will be curious till 11...lol

Great, we not only get told that in six months we will all be killed by Planet X/ Nibiru/Elenin/Brown dwarf and it's seven whites/ etc, but we also get to see an HD CG simulation of how and what happens. Perhaps they will be selling commemerative memorabillia online, put me down for two booklets and a couple of keyrings, I will pay by Pay-Pal.

Hmmm... If you read the comment section, ESA discovered another Earth like planet.

ILM is just there to put their discovery into animation. It will not be a big announcement.


ESA has it's own telescope for planet hunting Kepler is separate although the discovery is likely to be similar

Indeed. The HARPS program is ground based and realistically only useful for find fairly massive planets whereas Kepler should "theoretically" be more than able to find Earth size planets in the habitable zone. What I'm hoping is that Kepler has found exactly that and they will be announcing it. Of course in my fantasy land, the SETI scientist will say, "Yeah, we pointed the Allan Array at it and it's blasting out signals..."

I am so excited! I know a lot you are feeling jaded about the whole thing but...really!?!?! SETI and NASA? And the head honcho from ILM? The Astrobiologist! We all know that SETI searches for evolved lifeforms not bacteria...SETI had an unidentified signal back in February that was listed on the NASA website...I don't dare say what I am thinking

I know the chances of this are like zilch, but let me refer to an old article I found..

news.discovery.com...

just to get the mind going...

The article is about how the Kepler telescope could detect artificial ET artifacts, or structures. pretty interesting actualy!!
edit on 15-9-2011 by Smugallo because: (no reason given)


In a nutshell, just say an object, orbiting a nearby star that kepler was studying whas non spherical then it would give some very odd readings to the people studying the data. From that data they could reconstruct the shape of the object!

Perhaps thats why ILM are here haha!

again, be prepared for a let down though, it is NASA!

Yeah, I'd kinda love that to be true, sort of a childhood dream of mine to discover hard evidence of ETI!!

Just 1 hour left... time to prepare the computer and maybe some screen recording software to record this groundbreaking stream. Ok, maybe it's just another boring conference but I'm still allowed to dream


S+F for the OP for telling me about this hopefully important conference.

45 minutes...Who is going to guess what this is about? Habitable planet? Alien live? Or just another announcement to say "we found more planets."

As they already found plenty of earth likes planets lately I don't think that they want to tell us about one more. Should be a special planet to be worth it's own conference. Maybe 100% sure sign of intelligent signs at one of those planets? Would explain why a SETI member is present.

Just some presentation (with the dude from ILM there) about Goldilock/or some new discovery/ planets. They'll probably use this guys work to make the small issue appear much more.

So whats the news about? wasn't this to be a 1PM eastern? 11AM Pacific.. its past that time now!

Also strange is that this thread went missing for me... and now its back..

I searched NASA and got everything but this thread.. searched Kepler and scored a hit..

Nothing "NEW" yet..
