We need to scrap it down to it's core and get to the meat and potatoes we have been deprived of such forbidden knowledge. You cant fool me twice NASA shame on you! We are on a need to know basis, thanks for all the peanuts NASA. A monumental waste of taxpayer money
You are such a tease !

"This data is gonna be one for the history books," Curiosity chief scientist John Grotzinger, of Caltech in Pasadena, told NPR. "It's looking really good."
Well they did kind of had people involved in the program elude to it being BIG
why they can't take pictures without having to airbrush them in this day and age to start

NASA has been known to conceal information from us.

I think even if they found microbial life most people wouldn't really care all too much. They would be interested if it was some weird and wonderful animal or alien but barring that probably wouldn't care less... I am one of those to be honest.
Ahh, but too find life so close to home. That would be amazing...
I am starting to get tired of NASA too. For example? FOR EXAMPLE??? NASA don't have secrets, right? They are perfectly straight.
I am not sure if I should really apply for a place with close-minded scientists who are not open for possibilities and yet serve an organization that is far from transparent and gawd knows what is hidden.
I see you have lots of knowledge but it seems 'Types of classified documents' is not part of it. How would you give examples if something is still hidden to say WHAT is hidden? You can see their evasive answers about lots of things, let's not start the topic of space flight and astronauts here.
Also screw the media and their stunts - 'The announcement on Dec 3rd' - what is that? And what has Curiosity found - methane produced by organic substances? The article told nothing of what is 'for the history books'

Well, here we go. NASA is either covering up something that an overzealous scientist accidentally shared, or is playing legitimate damage control to set the expectations for the public.
Thought 1: There is something earthshaking discovered but NASA wasn't suppose to tell the public. So now they're backtracking after TPTB got hold of them.
Thought 2: There is something interesting, as stated, but only for scientists and a very curious public. The layperson won't care much what is found, so NASA is lowering expectations as a responsible agency.
What does ATS think - is NASA being responsible with its information expectations, or is NASA backtracking on something world changing to be safe?
I tend to agree with thought 2, but who knows anymore.

They will eventually discover life on mars, an extremophile nearly identical to those found on earth.Due to this, It will be theorized that the organic matter was thrown into space from an ancient earth impact, and that the organism survived space, and the entry into the martian atmosphere. Or possibly from contamination.
