Kepler Mission: NASA to Reveal AI Breakthrough Discovery—With a Little Help from Google

Do aliens exist? NASA likely to make big revelation this week

Kepler telescope is broadly considered the most successful planet hunter who supported NASA to find alien worlds with accuracy. Thanks to its discoveries, scientists now believe there to be at least one planet orbiting every star in the sky. Since the original mission was completed in 2012, Kepler confirmed 2,337 exoplanets and 4,496 potential candidates.

It is believed that during the research, scientists found almost 21 Earth-sized planets known to orbit within the habitable zones of their stars.

NASA is poised to make a significant announcement involving the search for Earth-like planets, in an effort that has been aided by artificial intelligence designed by Google.

The telescope is presently on its second mission called "K2", and this time, it is more dedicated to discovering exoplanets on a limited basis. This means they are the right distance from their neighboring stars to host extraterrestrial life.

"The discovery was made by researchers using machine learning from Google", reads a release from the space agency, adding that the breakthrough "demonstrates new ways of analyzing Kepler data".

According to the press release, K2 is "introducing new research opportunities to study young stars, supernovae and other cosmic phenomena".

So far, the Kepler space telescope has successfully identified over 2500 planets, and over 2000 more are yet to be studied. Kepler-11, imagined here by an artist, is a sun-like star orbited by six planets.

NASA has been on a roll lately, spotting more than a dozen planets over the past year that might be capable of sustaining life.

It will include contributions from the NASA's Astrophysics Division director, Paul Hertz, and the senior software engineer at Google Christopher Shallue. However, the exact details of the press conference have not been revealed.
