A discovery said to be "one for the history books" has been made by SAM, a suite of science instruments aboard NASA's Curiosity. Just you wait, NASA says.

Not everyone wants to. Curiosity's Facebook page had one early-morning comment from a fan: "WHAT IS IT?!?!" Mars watchers were expressing the same sentiments on Twitter.

Here, workers inside a clean room at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Canada-Flintridge prepare to install SAM into the rover.

    I'm a science geek and would love to know, even though a NASA rep announced it had nothing to do with extraterrestrial life. Speculation is now more rampant than ever. Personal hope (though more of a fancy), maybe its something useful enough like gas to be worth putting humans on Mars and science will get a huge boost because of that.

    Somehow I'm not curious about it.. Don't tell me, a 3D camera is in it or a bunch of bacterias they're trying to test if it can live in other planets...

    Not at all curious, though a thought just crossed my mind that this golden box may be programmed with rap music. If so the Martians may come here and wipe out the entire planet!

    good laugh from finding the presidents birth certificate but sadly if it's signs of life there will be those crazies saying its a plot and Obama's behind it.

    Probably some organic amino acids. It doesn't really mean much, they are found in nature almost everywhere.
  • JakeisHere yaaarrr... 2012/11/26 05:17:53

    Lol, you realize to have "nature" you are implying there is "life" cant have one without the other.
  • yaaarrr... JakeisHere 2012/11/26 05:38:37
    yaaarrrggghhh
    No. Rocks are found in nature. And you have left handed amino acids and right handed amino acids.
    All life is composed of 100% left-hand amino acids. The right handed acids interfere with left handed acids. So if you come across an abundance of left handed acids with very few right handed acids close by, you have the building blocks of proteins.

    But then comes the tricky part. The instructions for assembling the thousands of proteins in a single bacteria is contained in RNA, so RNA would have had to come first, complete with the blueprint to assemble the organism that it was going to inhabit.

    Nature: The phenomena of the physical world collectively, including plants, animals, the landscape, and other features and products of the earth, as opposed to humans or human creations. It implies biology.

    The "landscape" implies biology? The physical world collectively. That means pretty much everything.

    YES! Hope it's substantial clips of video verifying undeniable evidence of extra-terrestrials. But it will probably be proof of microscopic ice crystals formed from water vapor...or something like that.

    I'm hoping it's a bone off of anything that would blow creationism right out of the water. Like actually having a UFO land and another species handing us a new blend of alien coffee. Then Starbucks could sell it and not change their name!

    cause i know what it is. its a modified bloombergbox called and air conditioniar creeating water for a hydro electron engine. it breaks hydrogen down and o2 to feed a hydroengine, then the water waist getts devided back down to fuel the hydroengine. its like the same process of the sun, i called simbiotic energy.

    ps to be continue.......
