NASA will hold a news conference at 1 p.m. EST Wednesday, Feb. 22, to present new findings on planets that orbit stars other than our sun, known as exoplanets.
The event will air live on NASA Television and the agency's website, NASA writes in a press release.
Currently NASA is very secretive about the discoveries to be presented.
An exoplanet is any planet outside our solar system. The number of confirmed exoplanets is currently 3449, of which 348 are "Earth-like," according to NASA's page about exoplanets.
