NASA Holding New Exoplanet Information Close to Vest

NASA has cryptically announced they will have a press conference Wednesday, February 22, 2017, at 1 p.m. to announce new information about exoplanets. What discoveries have been made, we do not know. Will this rewrite the history books, the astronomy books, the diaries of many envious exoplanet explorers worldwide? We just don't know. We will have to wait, tuning in Wednesday afternoon at 1 p.m. EST, to NASA TV or the webside at nasa.gov. All they'll say for now is that they will "present new findings on planets that orbit stars other than our sun, known as exoplanets. The event will air live on NASA Television and the agency's website. Details of these findings are embargoed by the journal Nature until 1 p.m." Keeping us in suspense, eh Nature? I hope it's something big, or it'll be "Fie on you Nature!"
