NASA posted a press release on its official site indicating that it will be giving out details on its latest discovery on Tuesday, May 10, at 1 p.m. EDT. The presentation will also be streamed live via the NASA news audio.
NASA Announcement May 10 About Alien Base?
Alien conspiracy is nothing new for NASA, but these ongoing space probes have only been fueling more speculations that alien life exists. Express reports that NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan believes the dawning of the truth about aliens is near.
"We're on the verge of things that people have wondered about for millennia," Stofan said. "Within all of our lifetimes we're going to understand that there is life on other bodies in the solar system," he stated and added that the implications of these discoveries will definitely impact life here on Earth.
However, NASA's revelation usually only pertains to the discovery of single-celled organisms or the earliest forms of life, which shouldn't raise any alarm bells. Anyone looking for information green men with pointy heads might be disappointed, as that is unlikely what the NASA announcement is about.

NASA Announcement May 10 About Another Earth?
In 2015, the Kepler telescope discovered the Kepler 452b. This planet has been described as the Earth's cousin or Earth 2.0, per NASA. However, little is known about 452b because it has not yet been reached by any spacecraft at that time it was discovered. The NASA announcement on May 10 might shed further light on this, such is its characteristics, temperature and atmospheric conditions.
Inverse reports that the NASA announcement on May 10 could also be about a different and potentially habitable planet, or a planet that was once habitable. It might also be about the existence of supernovas or black holes. After all, this is what the Kepler was built and designed for as humans attempt to learn about space better.
