After NASA researchers announced the discovery of liquid water on Mars in September, a revelation that suggests life may have once existed on the Red Planet, the agency has promised to deliver new information about a pre-existing atmospheric layer on Mars in a live-broadcast announcement on Thursday. 

The press conference will air at 2 p.m. Eastern on the government agency's official channel, NASA TV, and will live-stream on its website, according to a press release — and the administration has refused to reveal any further information until then, CNN reports. 

Five NASA scientists will participate in the announcement, four of whom hail from the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution, the ongoing Mars mission to explore the planet's upper atmosphere, among other things.

Those interested can ask questions on social media during a Q&A session during the event using the hashtag #AskNASA.
