So NASA are set to make another announcement, what could it be this time? Conference will be held at 2PM EST and streamed as a live cast.

This time the conference participants will be:


  1. Michael Meyer, lead scientist for the Mars Exploration Program at NASA Headquarters
  2. Bruce Jakosky, Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) principal investigator at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado, Boulder
  3. Jasper Halekas, MAVEN Solar Wind Ion Analyzer instrument lead at the University of Iowa, Iowa City
  4. Yaxue Dong, MAVEN science team member at LASP
  5. Dave Brain, MAVEN co-investigator at LASP


So guys. Maybe they found something? With the amount of announcements they are making, I'm going to say.... no... something small this time me thinks!

"We found something we think is kinda there and it's a big deal but we can't get too close to check for sure because science can't science on mars!"

50p says they have found a rock shaped like Kim Kardashiwhatevers bum.

Or, given the team lineup, something to do with the atmosphere....probably richer in something or other than previously though, but still of absolutely no use for anything.

It's going to be about MAVEN:

NASA to Announce New Findings on Fate of Mars' Atmosphere

MAVEN News


Care to elaborate on this?

Probably found more evidence of liquid water. Nothing special tbh.

Water doesn't only exist on earth, it is all over our solar system, albeit in different states of matter.

"we've found that the surface of Mars isn't actually red, stay tuned for updates."

Judging by the participants from the MAVEN project (which studies Mars' atmosphere), and especially the guy for the "Solar Wind Ion Analyzer", this will be something about how Mars lost most of its atmosphere over the past billions of years due to it being stripped off by the solar wind.

(Hint - when you see anouncements like that, you can make a guess about the nature of discovery by which participants are going to, erm, participate
)

It really doesn't take much effort to do a little bit of searching on the net to find out.

MAVEN was in the news the other day.

MAVEN's home site says that NASA is doing an announcement today.

One of MAVEN's missions was to study the atmospheric loss that Mars suffered.

Take a look at the list of those at the announcement:




Michael Meyer, lead scientist for the Mars Exploration Program at NASA Headquarters

Bruce Jakosky, Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) principal investigator at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado, Boulder

Jasper Halekas, MAVEN Solar Wind Ion Analyzer instrument lead at the University of Iowa, Iowa City

Yaxue Dong, MAVEN science team member at LASP Dave Brain, MAVEN co-investigator at LASP


Pretty much a no brainer as to what they are going to be talking about....

So, MAVEN went there to study the upper atmosphere, now a short announcement on New Findings on the Fate of Mars' Atmosphere...seems very soon, the bloody thing's only up there a year at Mars.

Once again, NASA making an announcement of an announcement. They love drama.

Mars used to support life.
Screw NASA ATS should be making announcements!

I've gotta agree with the others, it may have something to do with the atmosphere.

I'm getting tired of the fact that some folk get their hopes up about an announcement of martian life then do a 180 and say 'meh' when it isn't. We are hoping to colonize this planet in the future and every tiny detail is another bullet in a chamber.

We need to know every minute detail before we attempt the send a manned mission, even if that means that a press conference is about the atmosphere having a greater percentage of X or a lesser percentage of Y then previously thought. Every bit of knowledge helps.

I don't think many people are expecting them to announce life soon.
It's fun to speculate.
