Mars just became a whole lot more interesting!

I wonder how they will explain it once they have had time to analyse it?

nasaupdatecenter.us...

The type of plastic sampled as we know so far can only be formed using petrochemicals, meaning not only that there could possibly be a source of oil on the Red Planet, but that somehow it got turned into plastic. Even more interesting is that oil or petrochemicals used to create this type of plastic are only known to come from ancient fossilized organic materials, such as zooplankton and algae, which geochemical processes convert into oil pointing to the earthshaking evidence that there was once life on mars.

I wonder how high their gas prices got before their planet became extinct.

I'm taking it as a welcome, at least to follow this lead and explore the different hypothesis that come with it.
I would love to be alive for this official discovery.

Hold the phone people

A small piece of NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has apparently fallen off into the Red Planet dirt, scientists announced today (Oct. 9).

So, it seems we are littering on Mars.

I'm not convinced that this is a hoax. The OP link looks pretty legit to me.

But these do look like cheap Bali baubles!

I don't understand. Did this Xaviar guy hijack JPL/NASA'a front page just to change the press release, to hoax us? How come all the links work? What's his angle?

Yes.

Because he copied them.

What's his angle?
He's a prankster.

What a huge waste of time just to troll people....To some degree I understand trolling. It can be amusing especially when you see the effects the trolling has, but what is the point of a hoax like this? It's a successful troll, I'm honestly a little irritated to find out this news is false, but that guy will probably never know he trolled me. So what is the point of this bull#? I just don't get it.

Yeah, the fact that it was talking about Curiousity at Endevour Crater was a dead-givaway.

Curiousity is at Gale Crater. Its predecessor, Opportunity is at Endevour.

I suppose that makes sense. Touche.

NASA has quelled rumors that a “major discovery” from the latest robotic probe on the Red planet was some form of indication of life. If there’s anything out there, we haven’t seen it yet, the agency said.

“At this point in the mission, the instruments on the rover have not detected any definitive evidence of Martian organics,” the space agency said in a press release issued by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a California division responsible for the Curiosity probe.

The latest news from google on Mars, 5 hours ago...

the top story on space.com is:

No Earth-Shattering Mars Discovery by Curiosity Rover Yet: NASA
www.space.com...

but, I did do a search for mars+plastic on nasa.gov and came up with the following:




Investigation of a small, bright object thought to have come from the rover may resume between the first and second scoop. Over the past two sols, with rover arm activities on hold, the team has assessed the object as likely to be some type of plastic wrapper material, such as a tube used around a wire, possibly having fallen onto the rover from the Mars Science Laboratory spacecraft's descent stage during the landing in August.


www.nasa.gov...

the links look credible, but this is where i find a problem:

http:// nasaupdatecenter. us/press.html

You see how it's ".us" and not ".gov"

elaborate hoax?

Can it be made by nature? I wonder if it's something we actually lost there from the rocket or something like that?
At any rate they'll probably say it was from our junk or space junk from a sattelite, etc.

If it is plastic, it is most likely site contamination that fell off the rover, but more likely is it's a hoax. Now where did I put my candy bar?
