Snapper Carr: So...is this the "earth shaking" announcement they teased a few weeks back? "Good news everyone, the soil sample analyzer we designed to analyze soil samples successfully analyzed a soil sample today".

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

Some people might say, "but they're scientists, why would they cover up discovery that harms religion?" Because they're controlled by the government, and more importantly, the department of defense. They know they can't keep it a secret forever, but they can delay the general discovery until they have a strategic advantage. Be that a space race, biological warfare advantage, or just a general economic one. Could be as simple as avoiding civil unrest or keeping the status quo.

You can call me whatever funny sounding "ther" nonsense, but I'll be on the right side of history in the end. When all the puzzle pieces fit, you can see the overall picture, even if one or two pieces is missing.

I promise you there is life on Mars. There is absolutely no doubt. They DID detect organic compounds, they just aren't sure they originated on Mars. That should be your first indicator some shadiness is going on. There's almost no chance it came from "contaminated" drill.

Ask yourself, why didn't they land Curiosity near one of the half dozen sites known to have high concentrations of methane? Their instrument can only measure gases up to 5ppb yet the range of methane is from 1-50ppb based on seasons and it's not evenly distributed across the planet. So it's no surprise at all they couldn't detect methane from their current crater location. It's like me trying to find water in the desert.

And now they find organics, in what is basically the desert, and the official message becomes, "no definitive organic compounds?" Right after one analyst said they have earth shaking news? It's bullshiat, pure and simple. Life on Mars is being actively covered up. What I want to know is why? What harm does knowing life is plentiful in the universe do? Oh yeah, invalidates nearly every major religion.

While it looks like this one might be a bust the discovery of organic compounds on Mars would definitely be something worthy of the history books. It's important to note that not all history books are written at the third grade 'earth science' level.

"We used almost every part of our science payload examining this drift," said Curiosity Project Scientist John Grotzinger of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. "The synergies of the instruments and richness of the data sets give us great promise for using them at the mission's main science destination on Mount Sharp."

And there you have it, folks. The Curiosity project is manned with a bunch of whargarrbl retards.

Bunkyb123: 2 weeks ago, Nasa official to journalist privately:
"We have found something amazing in the sample, believe me, it's going to be one for the history books"

Today Nasa official officially:
"We are analyzing a soil sample with blah blah boring boring boring whatever dirt is dirt"

Doubt I'll be reading about that in my history class. Something just doesn't add up here.


False positive. They double-checked their findings, realized someone made a stupid mistake, and then had nothing to really squawk about.

That's my guess, anyway.

At least they didn't make a big announcement over bad data and then have their failure be front page news.

dericwater: 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.


And you think they didn't because .... ?

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.

Bonus: it's public domain! Anyone who hasn't yet had their lives changed by a viewing of this masterpiece of cinematic art can (legally!) download it from archive.org.

Burn the ISO to a blank DVD and it will make a great Christmas gift (for someone you don't particularly like)!

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.

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.
