NASA will be hosting a somewhat unusual press conference on Thursday to announce the latest find from its planet-hunting Kepler Space Telescope. "The idea is that if advanced alien civilizations build planet-sized megastructures - solar panels, ring worlds, telescopes, beacons, whatever - Kepler might be able to distinguish them from planets", Wright wrote in a blog post.
Nasa launched the Kepler telescope, named after a 17th century German mathematician, astronomer and astrologer, in 2009.
NASA added: "The discovery was made by researchers using machine learning from Google". The "internet went aflutter" using his theory in relationship to the unusual discovery, Wright said, but he cautioned, "you should reserve the alien hypothesis as a last resort".
The teleconference will be streamed on Thursday, December 14 at 1pm. There are 30 in habitable zones, meaning they exist at the right distance from their nearest stars to possibly host extraterrestrial life.

Kepler completed its prime mission in 2012 and went on to collect data for an additional year in an extended mission. The mission was successful as it confirmed that there are 2,337 exoplanets that exist, and moreover, 4,496 more possible candidates.
In 2014, Kepler began a new exoplanet-hunting mission: K2. Kepler-11, imagined here by an artist, is a sun-like star orbited by six planets. He will be joined by Kepler project scientist Jessie Dotson, who works in NASA's Ames Research Center located in Silicon Valley, California. "Machine learning is an approach to artificial intelligence, and shows new ways of examining Kepler data", wrote NASA administrators in a lately issued press release.
According to the press release, K2 is "introducing new research opportunities to study young stars, supernovae and other cosmic phenomena".
