+ - Mars Curiosity Found Nothing After All?-> 1

iONiUM writes "In Slashdot's / NASA's original post, it was implied that Curiosity had found something interesting: "Grotzinger says they recently put a soil sample in SAM, and the analysis shows something remarkable. "This data is gonna be one for the history books. It's looking really good," he says.". However, during NASA's live AGU12 conference, NASA has now said "the instruments on the rover have not detected any definitive evidence of Martian organics", and "Rumors and speculation that there are major new findings from the mission at this early stage are incorrect.". Is this another NASA flop?"

Mars Curiosity Found Nothing After All?

Comments Filter:
  • I get the impression that NASA is so hung up on finding life on Mars that instead of letting the data speak for itself, all they investigate is organics or things that look like they could have been microbes a billion years ago.

A conference is a gathering of important people who singly can do nothing but together can decide that nothing can be done. -- Fred Allen
