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.
DONT FORGET .. that if they have found life on mars ... they don't deserve the PRIME credit as it was found on mars decades ago during the Viking expedition!

Why not just wait until the discovery is confirmed and then announce it?
