NASA has whipped up a ruckus with their release teasing an announcement about “an astrobiology finding that will impact the search for evidence of extraterrestrial life.” We’ve surmised that the press conference will primarily be about organisms that use arsenic rather than phosphorus for energy, and also incorporate it partially in their DNA. The conference begins at 2pm EST, and you’ll be able to watch live, streaming video here.
Word has gotten out in advance of the press conference that this is to be the main focus of the announcement, but we’ll know soon enough if if there’s more. If you’re interested, check out the livestream at 2pm.
