Journal: NASA's exceptional discovery

Journal by chichilalescu

last wednesday, this news conference was announced: http://www.nasa.gov/home/hqnews/2010/nov/HQ_M10-157_Chandra_Update.html

I don't know how normal it is for NASA to use "exceptional" in their announcements, but it's a bit frustrating. Seeing as how the three people named to be part of the conference are all astrophysicists, I doubt they'll be talking about alien life (I assume they have biologists at NASA). Also, considering that they announced this a few days in advance, I don't think it will be life-changing news for the average joe and jane.

it's frustrating that they're using the word "exceptional". I saw somewhere the suggestion that this is just a social experiment.

anyway, seeing that I only found out about this, I thought there would be people not knowing about it. I liked the fraction of a second when I thought "maybe", so I thought others might find this fun too.
