Looking at the panelists, it'll probably be a yawn worthy briefing about some "awesome" rock. I'm not expecting anything major... ESPECIALLY not anything about aliens or ancient martian ruins. At most, maybe they found fossilized bacteria.

Curious why you think that would be a good thing.

What possible benefits to you think would come from an announcement like that?



Kro32, if that was the announcement it would be one of the most incredible finds in the history of mankind for so many reasons, I'm sure you can think of a few yourself. It's probably going to be something less exciting than that though..............................but dare I hope? Nope I don't, I've been let down in the past with these announcements.

I hope it is substantial or everone is going to stop taking these "findings announcements" seriously.

What can the MRO detect that would justify a press conference anyhow?

Olivine, Phyllosilicates, chalk, a KFC?

Don't be silly, maccas always beats KFC to a new site..

But you're right, many of these findings only interest some scientists in certain fields..

But we can hope for something special..

I think they have found a hole to put the national debt in....

Or of course a place where maybe some bacteria can live. But they didnt found the bacteria yet. of course not

Look at the numbers of viewers climbing!

The addition of a biogeochemist is interesting to me, I think this may be about life, perhaps not present life but evidence of past life.

looks like they observed water flowing on the surface of mars.

Why do the folks in the panel look so completely miserable?

It's like they couldn't care less about this announcement.

Most likely because they can't say what they really found.


Flowing water, hmmm, so there are rivers on Mars.

Michael Myers:

"follow the water"

"if theres water, ther's life"

"minerals that form in water"

"ancient riverbanks"....


"we've followed the water and have found...... evidence of flowing water"


HiRISE monitoring and has found in the suthern mid latitude, "flows"

7 confirmed sites of flowing water

I'm not watching live but I was wondering if they are going to talk about the massive crater that the MRO was going to be pulling up the edge of soon. Keep us people in offices at work posted on the latest! Thanks!

Why is it that the speakers all have a freaking speech disability? They may be smart, but they sure sound like a bunch of morons.
