You do know that AIDS is a disease and not a bacteria don't you? You do also know that it is a viral disease and not a bacteriological one?

I do know that, but I choose to ignore that fact in the hopes for contracting full blown Mars AIDS.
I almost edited that post to explain that I do, in fact, know that AIDS is the result of a viral infection, but I hoped that the explanation would not be needed as the post was clearly after a jesting fashion. I suppose now I will be inundated with responses of "AIDS is a virus".....

No offence, Waspie, of course. You all get one.....Posted Image

I don't see why they have to tease us.  At least say what you think you've got.
Scientists that publish before they are certain often have their reputation damaged or destroyed. They aren't teasing, they are just doing their jobs properly.

If the new finding should turn out to be organic compounds, this will create an interesting situation. The two Viking probes to Mars, in 1976 seemed to detect life. This was doubted, when organic compounds could not be found in the samples. Such compounds should have been found if life was present.  If organic compounds do exist on Mars,  Viking may have found life on Mars after all. It has been suspected that organic substances did exist at the sites, but were destroyed when the samples were heated. Curiosity has a method of checking for organic compounds at lower temperatures.

Fascinating! I wonder what it will be? Running water? A new cave system? Dare we hope that life or the remnants of life might have been discovered?

The wait is going to be painful.......

well they mentioned 'air and methane' a few times...

edit, having said that maybe I mis read as they also refered to a past 'find' in the same sentence as air and methane, and this time they were analysing soil... hmm we shall see

If they did find aliens, they'd never tell the public about it.  Are you kidding me?

A couple of weeks? Great. Just enough fodder time for the 12.21.12 wackos.

I'm voting something carbon based. Maybe something simple like graphite. Maybe Methane, or a simple ether, or ester?

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

But perhaps the most popular Curiosity meme have been the tweets from someone calling themselves "@SarcasticRover."

You know it'll be about the discovery of some chemical element that they didn't think was there hitherto, of course, which will no doubt be of great interest to the Scientific community but will hardly be enough for those of us who want them to release information about the alien cities ....
