NASA has apparently found something big about Mars and it is going to announce it on Monday. The American space research agency has called a press conference to detail a “major science finding” from its ongoing Mars mission on Sept 28, NASA said on its website.
The announcement will be made live on NASA TV at 11:30am in US, which will be 9pm the same day in India. In July, NASA called a similar conference to announce the discovery of Kepler-452b, the most Earth-like planet found outside the Solar System to date.
NASA will be taking questions on Monday on its new finding from reporters and members of the public, who can reach the agency via #AskNASA
NASA has roped in Jim Green, director of planetary science at NASA Headquarters; Michael Meyer, lead scientist for the Mars Exploration Program at NASA Headquarters; Lujendra Ojha of the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta; Mary Beth Wilhelm of NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California and the Georgia Institute of Technology; and Alfred McEwen, principal investigator for the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) at the University of Arizona in Tucson to address the press conference.
