NASA Mars 'secret'

Nasa Mystery: Mars 'Find For The History Books' Kept Secret... For Now

The space agency has reportedly found something of huge importance on the Red Planet, thanks to the latest samples gathered by the $2.5bn Curiosity rover, according to media reports which emerged on Tuesday. The find is described as "one for the history books" - but Nasa is keeping its cards close to its chest.

It's checking and rechecking the data to make sure it's found... whatever it is that it's found, before making an announcement in December. It is speculated that the Sample Analysis at Mars instrument may have found organic compounds, or evidence of the same, in a dirt sample. It is also possible the rover may have found proof of Methane in the Martian air - a sign that life once existed in some form on the planet.

"This data is gonna be one for the history books," Curiosity chief scientist John Grotzinger, of Caltech in Pasadena, told NPR. "It's looking really good."

Space.com said that the announcement would be made at Autumn meeting of the American Geophysical Union, which takes place on 3 to 7 December in San Francisco. The rover began driving again on 16 November after six weeks at rest, taking soil samples and testing its instruments. It has not yet used its rock-boring drill, which is expected to turn up even more interesting data.

I'm tellin' ya, they didn't find anything, it's just a distraction from the guinea pig.

"You were correct, Captain. My desire to remain in the Delta Quadrant was
based on fear. I am no longer Borg, but the prospect of becoming human is
... unsettling. I don't know where I belong."

Re: NASA Mars 'secret'

Today, during a press conference in Rome, the director of JPL, Charles Elachi, confirmed that Curiosity may have found precursor of life on Mars

Rover detected 'organic, not biological, molecules'
(ANSA) - Rome, November 28 - NASA's Curiosity rover may have found a precursor to life on Mars, the director of the agency's Jet Propulsion Laboratory said Wednesday.
"Perhaps Curiosity has found simple organic molecules," Charles Elachi said at the fringes of a conference at Rome's La Sapienza University.
"It's preliminary data that must be checked (on) organic, not biological, molecules".
This is the news Grotzinger was referring to. I didn't expect anything more, since it was pointed out that the discover would come from SAM.
They didn't find life, but some of the bricks with which life (as we know it) is made

NASA has found "possible evidence" of ancient fart gases.

Taco Bell? You decide.
