Here is the transcript of NASA’s Press Conference that I had corrected in a readable format.
Now I’m gonna translate it into Turkish for my website Yersiz Şeyler [Placeless Things]. Then, as follow-up, it’s gonna be published as part of one of my compiled e-books, Yersiz Kitaplar, [Placeless Books] one of which already included “the software code that took America to the Moon”
Felicia Chou: Good afternoon. I’m Felicia Chou from the Office of Communications and we’re live here in NASA Headquarters. We’ve got some exciting news on worlds outside of our Solar System today. First we’ll have brief presentations from all of our panelists and then we’re gonna answer questions from those in the studio, on the phone and on social media. To ask a question via social media, please use the hashtag #AskNASA. Today’s participants are Thomas Zurbuchen, Associate Administrator of the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington; Michael Gillon, Astronomer at the University of Liegh in Belgium. Sean Carey, Manager of NASA’s Spitzer Science Center at Caltech IPAC in Pasadena, California. Sara Seagar, Professor of Planetary Science and Physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge. and, Nikole Lewis, Astronomer at the Space Science Institute in Baltimore. And with that, Thomas, can you start us off with what the big news of the day is?
