Seriously, what's the obsession with Mars??

Cash strapped Greece & Italy have put millions towards a £175 million Europe space mission, to send a spacecraft to Mars by 2015....I mean, wtf, why not spend it on there own Fucking countries...

There must be something to all this Mars shit....

SAM detected it do base your assumptions on what SAM does....

PASADENA, Calif. -- A pinch of fine sand and dust became the first solid Martian sample deposited into the biggest instrument on NASA's Mars rover Curiosity: the Sample Analysis at Mars, or SAM.

Located inside the rover, SAM examines the chemistry of samples it ingests, checking particularly for chemistry relevant to whether an environment can support life. Curiosity's robotic arm delivered SAM's first taste of Martian soil to an inlet port on the rover deck on Nov. 9. During the following two days, SAM used mass spectrometry, gas chromatography and laser spectrometry to analyze the sample.

The sample came from the patch of windblown material called "Rocknest," which had provided a sample previously for mineralogical analysis by Curiosity's Chemistry and Mineralogy (CheMin) instrument. CheMin also received a new sample from the same Rocknest scoop that fed SAM. SAM has previously analyzed samples of the Martian atmosphere.

"We received good data from this first solid sample," said SAM Principal Investigator Paul Mahaffy of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. "We have a lot of data analysis to do, and we are planning to get additional samples of Rocknest material to add confidence about what we learn."

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, manages the Mars Science Laboratory Project for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington. JPL designed and built the rover.

Re: Big News From Mars? Rover Scientists Mum For Now
heres what it will be. it will be something like this.

Super hyped up press conference - a team of about 5 nasa scientists, and they announce that a billion years ago, according to our data, mars had a climate that was potentially habitable for life, along with oceans/sea. Our data shows that there was a high chance that what we have detected is the tell tale signs of life during that era.
blah blah blah.
Isnt that just amazing WOW, re-write the history books, give us more funding, send men to mars, yada yada yada.
Life is a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves.

Most likely firm evidence of some sort of microbial life. A repeat of the inconclusive Viking Lander chemistry experiment from the sound of it.

Not that we shouldn't have expected to find dormant or even active microbes on Mars to begin with. The universe is teaming with life of all kinds. To believe that Earth is the only planet in this indescribably enormous universe to have life on it, intelligent or otherwise, is delusional.

that rover must be magic..it avoids the dust storms that would sandblast it away...and every time it takes a self portrait ,it doesn't have any sand on top of it...those lens must be made of clear diamond because the dust storms dont cause any abrasion on the lens...yup a magic super rover...
How unfortunate for some rulers when men,women,and children continue to think... Keep repeating the lies loud enough and long enough and just maybe the people will start to believe the lies again and good luck with that...finding your energy open until mars becomes raging aries...

Howabout if instead of "searching for life" they are simply searching for diamonds? I'm not sure if I googled and calculated it right, but the price of 1 kilogram of top-quality diamonds, when cutted, would be worth 150 million?? Bring back 100 kg per trip... or howabout if they are searching for plutonium? 6 kg goes for about thirty-one million dollars, says this

I've ditched work before waiting on huge news from nasa.

I'm a Geek too. But those geeks are on another level.

What is exciting to them is like "Really? Are you fucking serious?" to me.



Maybe they found soil that is capable of harboring life or something. Or they found a diamond or some shit letting them know there is carbon on the planet.

Whatever it is it will be ghey as hell.
