The NASA news conference announcing the latest Kepler results will take place today at 1800 UTC (1300 EST) at NASA headquarters in Washington. You can follow the action live on NASA TV. The participants are:
- Douglas Hudgins, Kepler program scientist, NASA Headquarters, Washington
- William Borucki, Kepler Science principal investigator, NASA Ames
- Jack Lissauer, Kepler co-investigator and planetary scientist, NASA Ames
- Debra Fischer, professor of Astronomy, Yale University
I’ll hold today’s main post until after the embargo on the Kepler news lifts.
