Verify: Is NASA about to announce the discovery of alien life?

Is it true that NASA is going to announce the discovery of alien life?

QUESTION:

Is NASA about to announce the discovery of alien life? 

ANSWER:

We can verify this is false. 

SOURCES:

Thomas Zurbuchen, Associate Administrator NASA Science Mission Directorate

PROCESS:

The hackers group Anonymous put someone in a Guy Fawkes mask to proclaim NASA is about to announce the discovery of alien life.

But hold off on the UFO welcome mat, NASA says Anonymous simply took old statements totally out of context.

NASA went so far as to issue a statement: It's found no aliens.
