NASA will hold a press conference on Wednesday to present a “discovery beyond our solar system,” leading to speculation that the announcement will involve planets capable of sustaining life.
The agency has offered no details on the upcoming presentation other than that it will involve “exoplanets”.
this is where I thank god that I have Fetch TV and can stream NASA TV
It’s on YouTube
Not just one, but seven Earth-size planets that could potentially harbor life have been identified orbiting a tiny star not too far away, offering the first realistic opportunity to search for biological signs of alien life outside of the solar system.
The planets orbit a dwarf star named Trappist-1, about 40 light years, or about 235 trillion miles, from Earth. That is quite close, and by happy accident, the orientation of the orbits of the seven planets allows them to be studied in great detail.
you can stream from the NASA app too via chromecast.
I still do not know why Foxtel don’t have it a part of their lineup, especially when it is on Optus D3 for free.
How cool is this
yep sure can. Bloody love it!
