Has NASA Found a Real-Life ‘ALF’? (We Kid You Not … The Web Is Rife With Rumors of What NASA Is Going to Announce on Thursday)

Has NASA found a real-life "ALF"–Alien Life Form? The Internet was rife with rumors Wednesday afternoon that that might be what NASA will reveal in a press conferece on Thursday, Dec. 2, 2010.

Here’s Leslie Horn’s take on the hubbub at PCMag.com. First, he explains what NASA DID announce Wednesday: That it " ‘will hold a news conference at 11 a.m. PST on Thursday, Dec. 2, to discuss an astrobiology finding that will impact the search for evidence of extraterrestrial life,’ NASA said in a Wednesday statement. ‘Astrobiology is the study of the origin, evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe.’ "

Horn then said a Yahoo News report speculated that in the unlikely event alien life has been found, "it’s probably from Mars, considering the Exploration Rover Spirit has been sitting idle on the red planet after getting trapped in sand about a year ago. This amount of time would allow the rover, which has been examining Mars since 2004, to monitor chemical changes that would imply the presence of life."

Horn then quoted blogger Jason Kottke as saying, ""If I had to guess at what NASA is going to reveal on Thursday, I’d say that they’ve discovered arsenic on Titan and maybe even detected chemical evidence of bacteria utilizing it for photosynthesis (by following the elements)."
