I am expecting this announcement to be lack luster.
This is the scenario that I came up with to use as an example. What if they announce data that somehow indicates that human life was present of Mars in the distant past?
They shoot a car sized robot off this dust ball and hit another dust ball that is speeding through space and this robot can take pictures and analyze the composition of the rock with a laser and send it back to us.... buuuut it's not cool because it doesn't look like pandora from Avatar.

what if NASA is going to fudge the data or jump to a conclusion that data only semi-supports?
WASHINGTON — NASA downplayed Wednesday talk of a major discovery by its Martian rover after remarks by the mission chief raised hopes it may have unearthed evidence life once existed on the Red Planet.
A spokesman for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which is managing the project, appeared to pour cold water Wednesday on the hopes of space enthusiasts looking forward to an earth-shattering discovery.
