Ye I'm sure it's nothing groundbreaking and they are trying to create some suspense to get viewers. I'd bet something on water reserve on Mars, but could you imagine if they got out with something like "Hey do you remember we said there's no asteroid coming to earth today? WE LIED AHAHAHHA"
something less mundane

It wont be exciting or even decipherable to the layman.
NASA's actual mission, despite claims otherwise, is to reduce public interest in space by performing scientific thumb-twiddling like taking spiders up to the ISS and the like.
It is the blindfold, the puppet show which hides the fact that certain elements of MIC have been much more capable and active throughout the solar system and beyond than we are permitted to know.
