NASA will unveil an “exciting new discovery” about the moon at a press conference next week (October 26th).

According to a statement from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the announcement will be broadcast live on their website.

No details have been released on the discovery made by the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA).

SOFIA is a Boeing 747SP aircraft that has been modified to carry a 2.7 meter reflector telescope at altitudes between 38,000 and 45,000 feet.

This puts the aircraft above 99 percent of the Earth’s infrared-blocking atmosphere, allowing astronomers to study the solar system and beyond in ways that ground-based telescopes cannot.

The observatory’s mobility allows researchers to observe and study transient events from almost anywhere in the world, which often take place over oceans that lack telescopes.

The NASA announcement will be made Monday, October 26th at 12 noon EDT.

In a statement, the space agency said: “This new discovery adds to NASA’s efforts to learn about the moon in support of space exploration.

“As part of NASA’s Artemis program, the agency will send the first woman and next man to the surface of the moon in 2024 to prepare for our next big leap – human exploration of Mars as early as the 2030s.

“Understanding the science of the moon also helps summarize the broader history of the inner solar system.

The participants in the briefing are Paul Hertz, head of the astrophysics department at NASA headquarters in Washington; Jacob Bleacher, Senior Exploration Scientist, Directorate for Human Exploration and Operations Missions at NASA Headquarters; Casey Honniball, postdoctoral fellow at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland; and Naseem Rangwala, SOFIA Mission Project Scientist, NASA Ames Research Center, Silicon Valley, California.
