    Sounds like they may have found primitive life ;) How cool if it's true!

    Big News From Mars? Rover Scientists Mum For Now : NPR

    They have some exciting new results from one of the rover's instruments. On the one hand, they'd like to tell everybody what they found, but on the other, they have to wait because they want to make sure their results are not just some fluke or error in their instrument.

    It's a bind scientists frequently find themselves in, because by their nature, scientists like to share their results. At the same time, they're cautious because no one likes to make a big announcement and then have to say "never mind."

    ...

    Grotzinger says they recently put a soil sample in SAM, and the analysis shows something earthshaking. "This data is gonna be one for the history books. It's looking really good," he says.

    Grotzinger can see the pained look on my face as I wait, hoping he'll tell me what the heck he's found, but he's not providing any more information.

    saw this the other day ... they are holding off because they found methane the first time and not the second time? They want to confirm the test was not done with trapped earth air.

    Does a primitive republican look like a sperm?
