NASA To Reveal Kepler Breakthrough: What Did Google AI Find?

It will take place Thursday, December 14 at 1 p.m. EST.

The briefing is likely to reveals the telescope's latest catalogue, which is set to be Nasa's best look yet at possible alien planets. The U.S. space agency wants to reveal a breakthrough AI discovery coming from its alien-hunting telescope.

The Kepler telescope recently found ten more planets outside our solar system which could be the size and temperature to support life.

Thanks to Kepler's treasure trove of discoveries, astronomers now believe there may be at least one planet orbiting every star in the sky, the United States space agency said. The spacecraft, which completed its prime mission in 2012, has so far discovered 2,337 confirmed exoplanets and 4,496 candidate exoplanets.

The space observatory, the most accomplished planet-hunter in history, has already found several planets orbiting their star in the so-called Goldilocks Zone, where it is neither too hot nor too cold to allow liquid water to flow.
