NASA teased the world with a press release that they will unveil new discoveries involving alien oceans in Earth’s solar system. The press conference, which happened on April 13, “discussed new results about ocean worlds in our solar system from the agency’s Cassini spacecraft and the Hubble Space Telescope during a news briefing at 2 p.m,” NASA officials wrote in a press release.
The event, which will be held at the James Webb Auditorium at NASA Headquarters in Washington, will include involvement from experts across the country, who will weigh in remotely. The briefing will be available live, broadcast on NASA Television, as well as the agency’s website.
“These new discoveries will help inform future ocean world exploration — including NASA’s upcoming Europa Clipper mission planned for launch in the 2020s — and the broader search for life beyond Earth,” the same press release stated.
The news briefings participants will include:
- Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator, Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington;
- Jim Green, director, Planetary Science Division at NASA Headquarters;
- Mary Voytek, astrobiology senior scientist at NASA Headquarters;
- Linda Spilker, Cassini project scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California;
- Hunter Waite, Cassini Ion and Neutral Mass Spectrometer team lead at the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in San Antonio;
- Chris Glein, Cassini INMS team associate at SwRI;
- William Sparks, astronomer with the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore.
The press release also noted that, “Members of the public also can ask questions during the briefing using #AskNASA.”
Though the press release seems vague to say the least, the cryptic press conference will seemingly indulge us with more information about how NASA will be executing a larger search for life outside of the confinements of Planet Earth.
As of yet, we are aware that the discoveries are based on data from the Hubble Space Telescope and the Cassini mission, which has been looking into Saturn and its satellites for more than a decade, and is scheduled to plummet to its death this September.
However, those details aside, the space agency has been extremely secretive regarding new advancements and plans.
Though it would be nothing short of exciting to learn of a direct discovery of life on one of our Solar System’s ocean worlds, the press release doesn’t make that seem very likely. Rather, even when reading between the scant lines, it sounds like the researchers have something that has the potential to change where and how we look for life moving forward.
The announcement’s mention of Europa is certainly of intrigue. One of Jupiter’s 63 known moons, it is thought it may be one of the best candidates in our Solar System to host alien life. This moon is just a bit smaller than our own Moon, measuring 1,940 miles.
Researchers have been open about their belief that underneath Europa’s icy surface resides a massive liquid ocean that could be up to 10 times deeper than Earth’s oceans.
Nevertheless, today’s press conference will surely tantalize our extraterrestrial interests, and hopefully open the floodgates for a new way to yearn for the vast life that exists beyond what we could have ever imagined.
Something Else To Think About
Below is a great quote from United States Army Command Sergeant Major Bob Dean, who also served at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) of NATO as an intelligence analyst. He admits there is more footage that has been erased and hidden than we’ve been told about:
Ladies and gentlemen, my government, NASA, which many of us in the United States say stands for Never A Straight Answer, proceeded to erase 40 rolls of film of the Apollo Program — the flight to the Moon, the flight around the Moon, the landings on the Moon, the walking guys here and there. They erased, for Christ’s sake, 40 rolls of film of those events. Now we’re talking about several thousand individual frames that were taken that the so-called authorities determined that you did not have a right to see. Oh, they were ‘disruptive,’ ‘socially unacceptable,’ ‘politically unacceptable.’ I’ve become furious. I’m a retired Command Sergeant Major. I was never famous for having a lot of patience.
For years we’ve been seeing information like this drift into the mainstream. It wasn’t long ago when two top astronomers from the SETI Institute (Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence) recently appeared in front of the congressional House Science and Technology Committee for a hearing regarding the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. They told the committee that extraterrestrial life most certainly exists, without question.
On the other hand, if you browse through the exopolitics section, we’ve written about countless amounts of scientists and high ranking whistleblowers who believe that we are already being visited, but for the mainstream population, that might be a little bit too much to take in.
Based on our years of research here at CE, there seems to be a long term extraterrestrial disclosure plan. Where leaks of information pertaining to extraterrestrial life will continue to occur over the years and months in order to warm our minds up for what could already be happening – intelligent extraterrestrial discovery and contact.
This is why we see so much of this information in all aspects of our lives, including the entertainment industry. Maybe the truth won’t be so shocking if we already suspect it and perceive it to be an inevitability, instead of an impossibility.
It’s What Humanity Is Calling For
The top google searchers every single year always show UFOs and extraterrestrials as a hot topic. As time moves forward, the masses seem to become more and more curious, this is also evident from the fact that the most viewed file in the FBI vault deals with a crashed extraterrestrial spacecraft and bodies.
