ALF, Zoidberg and Chewbacca walked into a press conference...

    NASA has called a press conference for 2 p.m. EST Thursday to discuss "an astrobiology finding that will impact the search for evidence of extraterrestrial life."
    Speculation is they've found some bacteria on Saturn's moon Titan, but the fantastical theories are running wild that they'll trot out an alien. Hell, maybe the SETI telescopes picked up the deep space equivalent of Dr. Demento. Should be interesting either way.

    Guess they finished running those tests on Sam Cassell.

    I find this stuff fascinating, but the only way an alien will be introduced is if it unexpectedly bursts out of one of the researchers' chests. News of intelligent life will be delivered by the President.

    I'm interested to hear what they have to say nonetheless.

    And the title of this thread is fantastic.

    Zzzzzz...after reading this report -- http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/space/8174040/Life-as-we-dont-know-it-discovery-could-prove-existence-of-aliens.html -- looks like more fantastical suppositions based on conjecture and wishful thinking, not on a physical discovery on a far-away planet. Because, you know, we haven't actually been to one of those places 20 light years away.

    Rumor is they've found alien DNA ... kind of.

    I was afraid that they might have been hit by a Wookieleak scandal.

    I think that press conference was the NASA equivalent of Al Capone's vaults.
    Interesting from a scientific perspective? Absolutely.
    Something for the general public to get excited about? Uhhh ... no.
