Where can you watch the latest NASA announcement?
NASA will be broadcasting live at 7pm today BST from their official website.
The discovery was first announced earlier this week when the Curiosity Rover beamed back data to scientists back home.
NASA announced they would be revealing the discovery from Curiosity today, keeping the details a secret.
The rover Curiosity has been on Mars since August 2012, collecting data to beam back to NASA scientists, in an attempt to understand if the red planet could ever host alien life.
A range of experts will attend the live broadcast conference, many of whom appear to investigate organic molecules, prompting theorists to suggest the announcement will provide evidence of life on Mars.
Attendees include Paul Mahaffy, who leads the Solar System Exploration Division at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and is in charge of the analysis of samples collected by Curiosity. Researchers in geophysics and atmospheric chemistry will also attend.
NASA has also requested members of the public to send in questions to be asked in the conference. Questions and requests can be posted on social media with the hashtag #AskNasa.
