NASA Aliens Live: NASA will make a big announcement this afternoon (2 p.m. EST) about some major discovery they’ve made “that will impact the search for evidence of extraterrestrial life.” The space agency has declined to elaborate further on the topic, and I can’t help but wonder: Are they going to tell us that they’ve found evidence that aliens do exist?

The news has created a buzz among space enthusiasts and believers in alien life, with a lot of speculation over what could be revealed. Among the participants at the news conference will be:

Mary Voytek: Director, Astrobiology Program, NASA Headquarters, Washington
Felisa Wolfe-Simon: NASA astrobiology research fellow, U.S. Geological Survey, Menlo Park, Calif.
Pamela Conrad: Astrobiologist, NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.
Steven Benner: Distinguished fellow, Foundation for Applied Molecular Evolution, Gainesville, Fla.
James Elser: Professor, Arizona State University, Tempe

The announcement will be held at the NASA Headquarters in Washington and will be broadcast on NASA Television. For live streaming video and downlink information, you may visit http://www.nasa.gov/ntv.
