The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has called a press conference on Thursday to announce a "new" discovery by its planet-hunting Kepler space telescope that can be the turning point in its hunt for alien life.

Kepler concluded its original mission in 2012, confirming a total of 2,337 exopanets and 4,496 more candidates.

NASAs's Kepler Space Telescope has been searching for habitable planets since 2009. Google's machine learning approach to artificial intelligence is considered the world's pioneering application in the field. 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 space agency vociferated for a press teleconference which will be streamed live on NASA Live.

Thanks to Kepler's treasure trove of discoveries, astronomers now believe there may be at least one planet orbiting every star in the sky.

It found the majority of them on its first mission, between 2009 and 2013, but has continued to find more in its extended K2 mission, which began in 2014.

The Kepler space telescope is tasked with finding other planets - some of which exists in a "habitable zone", meaning they could support life.

It is thought the announcement will revolve around exoplanets - Earth-sized planets that orbit around their own stars.

Shallue is a senior research software engineer at Google Brain, which is the tech corporation's machine intelligence research team. The second mission confirmed that there are 178 exoplanets that exist till this day, and that there are 515 additional potential planets. K2 is likewise "introducing new research opportunities to study young stars, supernovae and other cosmic phenomena", the press release stated.
