    Alien life? Word is that nasa is expected to make a big "earth shaking" announcement. This website was leaked about a day ago.

    Well, that website certainly does look official. There's a countdown timers and everything. It MUST be alien life.

    Apparently - delving into the lunacy that is Above Top Secret - that website originates in Panama.
    Doesn't inspire confidence.

    "NASA has made a historic discovery that will shake the entire planet."
    Um, if NASA (whose site is down at the moment) hasn't announced it yet how do these guys know anything about it?

    A moon-sized object on a collision course?

    I tend to be skeptical about NASA anouncements, even if they are real NASA announcements. I think there's a tendency to exaggerate claims sometimes, if they think it will stir up interest and possibly benefit their budget. I doubt they'd lie, but they probably embellish a bit.

    Looks like your typical email address harvesting trap. Get people to sign up and then don't deliver, but you did get crap loads of email addresses from gullible web surfers that you can sell to spammers and other marketing companies.

    nasa did make an announcement of some kind on November 13, 2012, something to do with mars rover. Hardly earth shattering though.
    Speaking badly about people after they are gone and jumping on the bash the band wagon must do very well for a low self-esteem.

    Type in "NASA announcement" in the YouTube search bar and scroll through the results.
    Now, it becomes understandable why SETI is looking for intelligent life on other planets, since we have given up on this one.

    So does the one bearing all the United States Treasury Department and FBI logos which "locks up" your PC and demands payment of a "fine". Ever seen it? joc

    Given the current political and financial circumstances of the United States, there is some speculation on whether NASA will have the budget to maintain both the International Space Station (ISS) and the SLS/Orion Exploration program. Perhaps the announcement will entail the salvaging of one program at the expense of another?

    I looked around and all I could find was a case of bad reporting and an overly excited scientist about soil samples from curiosity rover.

    Which means it's absolutely nothing to do with the OP or this thread.
    Why did you bother posting?

    This is just some guy's personal website, it has nothing to do with NASA. Link removed.

    It is probably an incredible announcement if you are in the clique of actual scientists in that particular field working in that particular group to whom every thread of new information means the world, since they dedicate their life for it. To the rest of us it may seem interesting but the enthusiasm is, although existent, is nowhere near their level.

    I can't get on the NASA website since:

    Due to the lapse in federal government funding, this website is not available.
    We sincerely regret this inconvenience.
    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

    I think since the fed gov is shut down, the collection of sales tax and fed income taxes should also be suspended. I mean seriously, if my internet provider shut down, they would not be allowed to continue to bill me during the time I am going without service.

    I heard NASA was going to experiment with brewing beer in space. Probably an expensive bottle of beer. Price announcement?

    I don't think NASA is going to announce anything on the 13th. The originator of that information is an untrustworthy site, and NASA at the moment has no funding for an announcement.

    In fact, the original website that stated so has a link to "FIND OUT ABOUT IT" which redirects to a YouTube music clip. Rather like a RickRoll.

    The perpetrators used the fact that the official NASA website is currently shut down to propel this very obvious hoax.
