WATER!?!?! Who would think there would be more water out there. Not tryign to be rude, but considering how much water we have on earth, I don't see it as shocking.

then they say, wait, it's not that important.
They had their chance and resorted to the same BS secrecy they are known for. Now, I just don't care.
I will speak out about spending a freaking dime on NASA from now on. It is just a huge waste of money when we have more pressing issues on earth. They can pay for their own toys and play time. We need the money for real people and real problems, not nerds on power trips.
screw you NASA, you are lame.

funny that your 600US$ Nikon won't be able to take any pictures at -20 C, or at +100 C..... If you know electronics, you will know the price difference between commercial electronics that function between 0 C and 40 degrees C. From there it is like a 10x jump to industrial stuff that can function between -10C and +55 C, and like a jump of a couple of 1000x to stuff that can work from -55C to 100C, and then an even bigger jump to stuff that can withstand cosmic radiation.

What is it with these attention seeking whores?
I mean, it seems like it is every week now with some "major announcement" which is just sure to rock the world of science.
Come on man!!
Enough with the damn announcements already.
We get it!
Something that is a major discovery to you is not worth the time it takes for me to read it.
Until you are going to announce "THE BIG ONE" then SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!!
And I'm not talking about microbial life either damn it!!!
If that's going to be your next "big announcement" then don't bother.
I feel like humanity has a carrot dangling by a string right in front of our noses and try as we might, we never can seem to quite get it.
F off NASA!!!
