NASA Briefing on Keplers Extraterrestrial Discoveries

NASA's Kepler spacecraft has been in hot pursuit of extraterrestrial life for four years now. And, on Thursday, it's letting people know just what it's found lurking in the Milky Way.

NASA held a Kepler briefing today on April 18, 2013 at 11 a.m. PST . It was broadcast live on NASA Television and on UStream. The agency also hosted a moderated Web chat with Kepler Deputy Project Scientist Nick Gautier of NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab. During the briefing, people submitted questions to the Kepler scientists via Twitter with the hashtag #AskNASA.

Kepler launched in March 2009 and was NASA's first mission capable of finding Earth-size and smaller planets encircling other stars within the Milky Way galaxy. The space telescope has specifically been looking for planets within a certain distance of a star that would allow for a surface temperature where liquid water could exist.
