NASA's big announcement on alien life

'The discovery was made by researchers using machine learning from Google, ' Nasa said. But it will nearly certainly relate to exoplanets - Earth-sized worlds that orbit around their own stars, and are our best hope of finding alien life. Furthermore, recent reports have revealed that NASA cited Google's machine learning played a pivotal role in the highly anticipated discovery.

NASA's Kepler space telescope has gazed at more than 150,000 stars and continues to transmit back data that leads to important discoveries of celestial objects in our galaxy, including first-time observations of planets outside our solar system.

It completed its primary mission in 2012, when two of the four reaction wheels used to position the telescope failed.

Trump accusers urge Congress to probe harassment claims
Democratic Senators Cory Booker of New Jersey and Jeff Merkley of OR called over the weekend for Trump to quit. Holvey said she felt like she "was just simply there for his pleasure".

NASA hasn't yet announced what they'll be revealing, but in a statement they did say it was related to machine learning.

The Friday release said the Kepler mission, NASA's most prolific exoplanet finder in history, hit a major breakthrough with the help of artificial intelligence (AI). It confirmed the existence of 2,337 exoplanets and 4,496 possible candidates. However, only 30 are orbiting within the "habitable" zone of their star. K2 is also "introducing new research opportunities to study young stars, supernovae and other cosmic phenomena", according to the press release.

So far, the Kepler space telescope has successfully identified over 2500 planets, and over 2000 more are yet to be studied.

Panthers OL Matt Kalil warns Vikings that he's a different guy
To make matters worse, left tackle Riley Reiff had to be carted to the locker room after suffering an ankle injury. The Panthers (9-4) got 103 rushing yards from Jonathan Stewart and Carolina's defense stifled Minnesota's offense.

Experts from NASA and Google will be on hand to explain the latest breakthrough.

Exactly what NASA and Google have discovered, we will just have to wait until Thursday to find out. Among them are Paul Hertz, NASA astrophysicist, Christopher Shallue, Google AI senior software engineer, Andrew Vanderburg, astronomer and NASA Sagan Fellow, and Jessie Dotson, Kepler project scientist.

Josh Gordon Scores First Touchdown Since December 2013
The 26-year-old was able to haul in his first touchdown in 1,456 days on an 18-yard catch midway through the first quarter. Gordon's touchdown reception was just the third by a Browns receiver this season, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
