The most recent results from the SAM are to be discussed at the upcoming AGU meeting. That's all it ever was.
Curiosity finds carbon – but is it from Mars?
A tantalizing whiff of carbon-based compounds has been picked up by NASA's Curiosity Mars rover. But it's still not clear whether the eagerly awaited results show the true chemical nature of Mars or are the products of Earthly contaminants.

Interesting that Curiosity has developed a fault at such a crucial stage in it's mission. I think something was discovered when they dug into the Martian soil recently and so in order to cover it up they have come up with Curiosity is broke story.

I'm not terribly knowledged in space exploration -- but sometimes the excitement/speculation of NASA "hiding a huge discovery" on Mars is hard for me to believe. The pictures and things I have learned of Mars, is that it is barron and boring. Then again, I don't really know what "major discovery" is to a smart space person.
I get the impression from some folk here that NASA may be hiding major life and/or alien technology they have discovered on Mars.
To the smart space/planet people, where is the line drawn?edit on 3-3-2013 by capone1 because: (no reason given)
