@Chordwainer, is this as major as they’re making it sound?
Hey! They’ve finally found the rest of my people.
Too big of news for the Science Nerdliness thread! The “holy grail” … Kind of ironic they’re using artificial intelligence to find (possibly) biological intelligence. Better living through technology. “E … T … phone … Kepler!”
Here’s the NASA announcement, with weblink to the live conference Thursday.
The press conference was okay, but I guess I was expecting a little more exciting news. They just talked about the AI stuff and how it found the two planets that humans couldn’t. Wonderful. Now where are the damn aliens???
Yeah, this was very underwhelming. It’s a significant process improvement, sure, but not all that hypeworthy.
At least it wasn’t yet another “we found water on Mars!” release…
