Big News From Mars? Rover Scientists Mum For Now

November 20, 2012
Scientists working on NASA's six-wheeled rover on Mars have a problem. But it's a good problem.

They have some exciting new results from one of the rover's instruments. On the one hand, they'd like to tell everybody what they found, but on the other, they have to wait because they want to make sure their results are not just some fluke or error in their instrument.

It's a bind scientists frequently find...

continued

Edit: "Grotzinger says it will take several weeks before he and his team are ready to talk about their latest finding."

So yea, I got nothing.

48. Love this response because it is apt. Considering the time frame

from the day the finding of methane was announced, it would not be a stretch to speculate that perhaps redundant findings have confirmed the presence of methane which would indicate the presence of either ancient or contemporary life.

21. I think Rubio is unqualified for public office because of that

I knew "peripherally" the earth was around that age ( I said 4 billion) just from my casual contact with popular science books and media. That Rubio could not come up with even an approximate figure is shockingly ignorant for someone in his position and power.

He should be literally asked to resign over this as unqualified for office.

33. At least some presidens could give credence to where life originated.


“All of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came.”

-JFK

It takes a true visionary to say: “Daaa, I dunno Whether the Earth was created in seven days, or seven actual eras. I'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that. It's one of the great mysteries.”

Rubio just dashed any chances of even becoming the GOP nominee. With all the scientific evidence before us on archeology and geology for any politician to be so ignorant as to the earth's beginnings, our beginnings, would be truly shocking had it not come from the crazy right.

17. They will do their usual vague reveal of maybe something

cool that possibly happened which resulted in an interesting rock that perhaps could be a marker for potentially key component to a building block of a portion of life. But they aren't 100% sure.

I'm not slamming NASA but I get really tired of these various qualified comments from them so as not to cause a stir among the religious right.

Show me cool pictures, give me fantastic stats on geology, show me evidence of water (or even water for that matter), give me the results of drilling and atmosphere tests, but please stop it with the vague announcements that are further blunted by, "we can't tell you right now, but, hold on to your seats, we will be able to tell you several months from now!!"

Personally, I preferred the "tweets" from the lander. At least those were humorous and insightful.

Yeah, I'm cranky this morning, "get off my lawn!"

52. I very much doubt they're hedging their words to avoid offending the religious right.

In fact I'd go so far as to say that the NASA scientists probably can't find two shits to give about what the religious right thinks. The qualified statements are because you don't go off half-cocked announcing discoveries you aren't sure about, even if you can be perfectly okay saying you're chasing something that looks cool.

If there was ancient life they may find hydrocarbon remains (ie oil or coal or something similar). Methane may not indicate life because it is found from cosmic origin rather than organic origin.

Let me say, first off, I'm all for jokes. But: If they found life, verifiable, independently originated life, it could be one of the biggest discoveries in human history.

So invariably the next move is to start whining about how much money the rover cost.

DU's usually particularly bad for science posts, even though the place has matured considerably since we Bombed The Mooooooon~.

My main reaction to this one was "argh! you bastards! I'd rather you say nothing until you're ready than drag me along like this! But I'm going to be dutifully reloading NASA's press sites like some kind of malign parcel tracking page anyway! because I know you're manipulating me and I just don't care," followed by wild speculation, with the snark around fifth on the priority list.

(Also: hell, if they found life that was demonstrably brought over from Earth, the fact that it's still around there would be news on its own.)

At least that's my thinking. They were analyzing soil samples. If the soil was even remotely moist, it's probably crawling with bacteria, as is probably any moist soil anywhere in the universe. Many bacteria are extremely hardy and adaptive. Life finds a way.
