NASA may announce discovery of alien life Thursday.

NASA has announced that it will have a press conference Thursday at 2 p.m. to announce a discovery that "will impact the search for extraterrestrial life".  The conference will include experts in astrobiology, and will coincide with publication of the findings in the journal Science.  It will be broadcast and webcast on NASA TV and Space.com's NASA TV feed

The nature of the discovery is unknown, and could be related to either local studies of our solar system's moons, or recent discoveries of extrasolar planets that could support life.  If the former, then it is likely the discovery of primitive life on one of the moons.  If the latter, then it would have to be discovery of alien intelligence, because it would be too far away for life alone to be detected.
