Has Anyone Heard About a NASA Announcement?

I hesitate to post this, because I don't have access to the source, but via EmBlog comes some interesting news:

NASA is planning to make a huge announcement today, about possible life in our own solar system.

Exact details of what we can expect to hear have not been released. We do know that evidence has been found that could point to life relatively close to the earth.

Official word is expected this afternoon at 2 p.m. We’ll have complete coverage of today’s big news when it is released. Tune to News 13 for the complete story.

Unfortunately, the source of the story is down, possibly under server load. A whois search is inconclusive, pointing to an ISP in Florida. Google has a cached version of the site that appears reasonably non-fake.

The story page was briefly up a few minutes ago, but this time it didn't mention life. Instead, it had this:

Exact details of what we can expect to hear have not been released. Earlier reports about the announcement may have been misleading.

It has all settled down now. We can get back to our lives. It wasn't that I was expecting plans for a giant machine to build at Cape Canaveral, but did I allow myself the luxury of thinking we might have found a lifeform? Yes.

Yeah, I'm about 30 minutes behind the rest of the Internet. Oops.

I found a lifeform in my fridge last week. I haven't grilled it for information yet, but there's still time.
