Have scientists found alien life on Pluto? Rumors of an 'amazing' announcement sweep the internet, but Nasa says there's no new Horizons update

NASA is rumored to disclose an ‘amazing’ discovery later today about Pluto and its New Horizons mission. Expectations are high that the space agency may have found marks of life on the dwarf planet - possibly even aliens - after a main investigator on the NASA mission talked about big news. But there is no clue as to what it might be and now the space agency has used Twitter to quash the rumor. NewHorizons2015 tweeted: “There is a false rumour going around that there will be a big New Horizons science announcement tomorrow. Completely false”. The rumor appears to start from a speech given by Dr Alan Stern, at the University of Alberta Canada, which NASA says has been misunderstood.

Dr Alan Stern said: “Nasa won't let me tell you what we're going to tell you on Thursday. It's amazing,” When talking about the newest images of Pluto and its moon Charon, which were recently issued by the space agency. They are the maximum resolution images yet of the dwarf planet at the verge of the solar system, captured by the New Horizons spacecraft. In reply to a question whether the quote of Dr Alan Stern was taken out of context NewHorizons2015 tweeted: “No idea how it was misinterpreted but it was”. 

Nevertheless, some reporters believe there is a significant announcement on the horizon, but it has just been put on hold. Dr Stern said in his recent speech: ‘This world is alive… it has weather, it has hazes in the atmosphere, active geology... Every week I am floored,’ as stated by The Guardian.
