Another Earth? Suspense Over Noon NASA News Conference

The first extra-solar planet was discovered in 1995. It is hard to remember when we did not know if there were other planets in the galaxy, but I grew up in that time. The pessimists felt our solar system was unique. Today, we know that is patently untrue. However, there is a holy grail of planet hunting: finding another earth. Today's announcement at noon EDT ... well, this may be a huge moment in history. We shall see.

For the announcement from NASA of upcoming coverage, see: http://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-hosts-media-teleconference-to-announce-latest-kepler-discoveries

I'll be listening. How about you?
