NASA’s so-called ‘Ocean World’ survey has successfully been concluded, and the agency now is gearing up for publicising the aftermaths of the study. The US-based space agency has called for a major press conference on Thursday for revealing the results of its so-called ‘ocean worlds’ study. NASA, at Thursday’s press meet, will disclose new discoveries that involve the details about the alien oceans located in the solar system of the earth, said the space agency officials announced yesterday, 10th April 2017.
As announced by NASA, on Thursday, April 13, the agency will hold a press conference for discussing the new results about mysterious marine worlds in our planetary system. The detection will also entail the information, collected from NASA’s Cassini Spacecraft and Hubble Space Telescope. As wrote by NASA officials in the press release, “These new findings will help people know the alien ocean world more closely and help to inform ocean world explorations, including the information about NASA’s approaching Europa Clipper mission, scheduled for having effect in the 2020s.” In the press conference, NASA will also introduce the broader exploration for hunting down life ahead of Earth.
In simple terms, at the press conference, NASA will launch its planning for “future ocean world exploration” alongside will reveal about the interplanetary mission – Europa Clipper which set for launch in the 2020s. The US space agency is also likely to announce various mysterious events when in the event.
As per official schedule, NASA’s ocean world’s press conference will set off at 2 p.m. EDT (1800 GMT) on 13th April, Thursday. The event will involve a question-and-answer session, which will allow journalists and attendants to question the panel of scientists from the Cassini and Hubble missions, as well as from NASA’s planetary exploration and science directorates, presented at the conference. Public members also can ask questions to the panel during the briefing session, by using #AskNASA, said NASA in its statement.
The chief speakers of event include, Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator, Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington, Jim Green, director of the Planetary Science Division at NASA Headquarters, Mary Voytek, an astrobiology senior scientist at NASA Headquarters, Linda Spilker, Cassini project scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, Hunter Waite, head ofCassini Ion and Neutral Mass Spectrometer team at the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in San Antonio, Chris Glein, team associate of Cassini INMS team at SwRI, and William Sparks, astronomer with the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore.
