From Mike Wall at Space.com:
NASA is not preparing to drop an alien-life bombshell, despite what you may have heard.
Last week, the hacking group Anonymous posted a video on YouTube suggesting that the space agency is about to announce the discovery of life beyond Earth. The video has made a big splash online — so big that NASA science chief Thomas Zurbuchen addressed the rumor today (June 26).
“Contrary to some reports, there’s no pending announcement from NASA regarding extraterrestrial life,” Zurbuchen said via Twitter, where he posts as @Dr_ThomasZ. More.
Aw, it’s nice day. Go back to the pool.
