Apparently NASA found something big on Mars. Results will be released sometime between Dec. 3 - Dec. 7... they're taking so long because they have to double/triple check the results.

I'm guessing organic material/micro-organisms.

Much of the internet is buzzing over upcoming “big news” from NASA’s Curiosity rover, but the space agency’s scientists are keeping quiet about the details.

The report comes by way of the rover’s principal investigator, geologist John Grotzinger of Caltech, who said that Curiosity has uncovered exciting new results from a sample of Martian soil recently scooped up and placed in the Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instrument.

“This data is gonna be one for the history books. It’s looking really good,”
