5 things NASA Could Announce On Monday

by Justin OConnellSeptember 27, 2015

NASA will reveal a  “major science finding”on Monday as part of its ongoing Mars missions. A special news conference takes place 11:30am EDT Monday, and is available live on NASA TV. Have questions? #AskNASA could get your inquiries answered on social media.

Jim Green, director of planetary science at NASA Headquarters; Michael Meyer, lead scientist for mars Exploration Porgram at NASA Headquarters; and graduate student Lujendra Ojha of the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta are some of those expected to take part in the conference. 

NASA held a similar conference in July to announce the discovery of Kepler-452b, the most Earth-like planet found outside of our Solar System. So what are they going to announce? Hacked has five ideas. We’ll start with what’s most likely: water.

  1. Water – NASA could announce it discovered water (possibly flowing) on Mars. Of the scientists presenting on Monday, most are geologists. Lujendra Ojha, Georgia Institute of Technology, is a geophysicist. People point towards this as evidence that NASA won’t announce the discovery of alien life.
  2. Tom Delonge is a martian – As Hacked has covered, former Blink-182 guitarist Tom Delonge has stated that he and NASA are working together on big things. Perhaps NASA is about to announce that Delonge is, in fact, a martian?
  3. NASA found Matt Damon – Many people are speculating that Matt Damon has been found on mars. The news stems from Damon’s recent movie, The Martian, where, during a space mission, Damon is abandoned on mars.
  4. NASA is building a strip mall – A strip mall will be built on mars featuring an assortment of retail stores and food outlets.
  5. Alien life – While it seems unlikely, NASA could always announce they found an alien or at least fossils.
