NASA has a big announcement in the field of astrobiology research. That is, they will. Tomorrow at 2pm EST. Go here to learn more and have fevered dreams tonight about the possibility that they may have evidence of the possibility of extraterrestrial life.
Sorry if this sounds cynical but while I'm very excited I've also been let down in this category more than once. So far, nothing but nothing has given us a confirmation of living organisms on an planetary body other than Earth. Yeah, yeah, some fossiled microbes in an meteorite or some such but that hardly counts. And seriously, that sucks. Its 2010 for crying out loud. Where are the dang aliens?
Probably hanging out with the flying cars we were promised.
