TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: kid_icarus: So they're cautiously optimistic that they might have found some things that could indicate something maybe. Got it.

They've already got enough morons yelling "NASA is a bunch of morons, defund them!", no reason to give them more ammo by overselling.


Or the alternative, the morons who will be yelling: "THERE'S LIFE ON MARS!! THEY FOUND IT!!!!" In Pearl-Harbor font in all tomorrow's papers before any confirming data is discovered.

NASA: We've got big news!
Public: Please say aliens. Please say aliens.
NASA: The shovel on our rover works and the sand dune on Mars is made of sand just like on Earth. Woohoo.
Public: Screw you.

This can't be the big discovering yet...it's not even news-worthy, let alone "something for the history books."

I'd wager this is just the "we've made sure our equipment works" announcement before the "look what our equipment found out" announcement later this week.

/hope, anyway...

Jgok: HammerHeadSnark: So, news is not "earthshaking" like NASA promised? 

Dang, and I was filled to the brim with alien-finding hope.

Ahem...

FTA: "Sand was vibrated inside the chambers to remove residue from Earth."

Sounds like they shook some Earth to me...


Dang, I missed that. Science wins again!

My problem, I guess was in believing that "earthshaking" was another word for "astounding." Silly me.

I'm old enough to have seen it when it was actually released the first time in Evanston, Il. There use to be Saturday Matinees every Saturday where they always played old Hercules movies dubbed in English and really bad horror movies. This was one of them and we couldn't wait to go see it. Sadly it wasn't what we were expecting.
Anyway, maybe they'll find "Dropo" on mars.

Yay! The equipment worked! And we only had to wait two weeks to tell you that.

If they want to make sure that they didn't have contaminated items, shouldn't they have done a null-test where they would go through the testing motion, but with no samples. The result should be nothing there. If they found something that might exist, then they know it was earth-based objects that were carried on board.

They do many types of background checks and corrections. This mission wasn't cheap, and the people involved understand undergraduate level analytical chemistry, plus some additional stuff.

I actually have the movie. One of the things I started doing some time back was trying to find as many of those old Saturday Matinee movies from those days and acquire them. I have manage to find quite a few of them. My recent find was "The Flesh Eaters" and now I'm on search for "The Killer Shrews"

Welcome to science... they get excited but tend to be very careful about overstating what they have. Compare this to Mary shaped brown spots on toast proving the existence of a deity.

Actually, most of this solar system is populated. Earth is under quarantine for being a bunch of idiots. All those diplomatic missions to the moon ended in Russia and the US being told to fark off already.

They just never mentioned it, but did mention that they need to make sure that the sample they collect isn't from the explorer itself, which sort of suggest that they didn't check everything. But, I guess the parts that were blasted away during the touchdown will be contaminating the martian surface. Maybe in 50 years, it would be ground into tiny pieces.

And yet they still make truly staggering stumbles like opening a sealed, sterilized box, moving a drill bit, and then resealing the box without sterilizing it:

http://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2012/0910/Scientists-fear-Curiosity -r over-drill-bits-could-contaminate-Mars

They pretty-much know the drill's contaminated, and if they happen to find water or ice now, they won't be allowed near it.

On Dec. 12, 2012 NASA will release a series of up close detailed pictures of what is obviously self evident as a living organism upon the surface of Mars. Mankinds focus and destiny is irrevocably changed. This will be the plung into 'Novelty' as predicted by Terrence McKenna . 
 
2012-12-03 06:09:42 PM  
No, they didn't discover anything orgasmic or organic. They said they discovered an environment in dire need of an Oreck. Once we vacuum up all that dust and stuff, we'll see what the real surface of the planet is made of. I'm hoping it's nothing of value. No need to go travel a few million miles to fark up another planet.
 
2012-12-03 06:11:24 PM  
As diverse as the universe is, it's only a matter of time before we discover life on another planet.

The question remains about the discovery of intelligent life. And for that I fear that Stephen Hawking may be right - it's better to avoid contact with it.

As long as we listen to HAL and don't try to land on Europa, we should be okay.
