Last Wednesday we posted Did NASA Find Life on Europa? It was about a news release from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), which said they had observed “surprising evidence of activity that may be related to the presence of a subsurface ocean on Europa,” and they would “host a teleconference at 2 p.m. EDT Monday, Sept. 26, to present new findings from images captured by the agency’s Hubble Space Telescope of Jupiter’s icy moon, Europa.”
Tomorrow is the big day. NASA says this is the link where you can watch (or at least listen to) the teleconference: NASA Live.
We’re posting early so that Google has a chance to index this post (they’ve been slow lately), and so that you’ll know we’re providing a convenient place to follow the event and make your comments. It starts at 2:00 Monday afternoon in the Eastern US. That will be 11:00 in the morning in California. In London it will be 7:00 in the evening. Wherever else you may be, you probably know how to figure out when it starts for you.
The Trump-Clinton Presidential debate will be at 9:00 in the evening in the Eastern US, so there won’t be any conflict. If the events were at the same time, we’d go with NASA because we might learn something new.
If Europa does show evidence of life, the creationists will deny it. If no such evidence is announced, creationists will cheer and claim that they knew it all along. Their reactions will come later. That’s all we have to say for now, except: Stay tuned to this blog!
