The space agency is set to reveal 'a major science finding from its ongoing exploration of Mars.'
According to a press release posted to its website, NASA has managed to solve a long running mystery about Mars and will reveal its findings at a press conference on Monday at 11:30 a.m EST.

The event will take place at the James Webb Auditorium at NASA's Headquarters in Washington and will broadcast live on both NASA TV and on the agency's website.

It will be attended by planetary science director Jim Green, Mars exploration head Michael Meyer and three university officials from Georgia Tech and the University of Arizona in Tuscon.

It isn't clear at the moment specifically what the scientists have found on Mars however it is possible that more details will emerge nearer to the time of the announcement.

Either way though this is going to be one worth keeping an eye on.

Update: NASA discovers liquid water flowing on Mars

Don't even joke about it, someone will think you are serious. Heck, there are some who already think that stuff is serious!

#paranormalcy: the funny fact is back in 1969 we had the technology to travel to the moon' but we did not have the technology to fake a landing on the moon!

This announcement will have all the gravitas of a pinch of cow manure and will be forgotten in a week.

Wow - soooo much cynicism in this thread in regards to what NASA has finally scientifically solved - (whatever that may be) Quite frankly - whether these findings are possibly mundane or not (to the laymen anyway) - it still benefits the overall exploration and new discoveries that are taking place on planets and the far outer reaches of space in general. Thanks to NASA - I like to think how darn lucky we are to be gaining this or any other knowledge in general - concerning the planets and the interesting scientific findings that are being discovered. Be grateful

A few sites have speculated they have found flowing water. It's stemming from the panel of scientists that have been selected to speak at this conference. Either way, exciting stuff!

Wow - soooo much cynicism in this thread in regards to what NASA has finally scientifically solved - (whatever that may be) I couldn't agree more. There seems to be a belief with some that science should be some sort of spectator sport, delivering excitement. That's not what it is nor is that what it can be. This view, dismissing scientific progress because it is not exciting enough shows a profound lack of understanding of what science is and how it works. Science builds a body of knowledge bit by bit, discovery by discovery in a jigsaw like way. Just because a major discovery may not excite ... [More]

Beautifully expressed Waspie.

This "major" announcement by NASA will simply be a confirmation of informed speculation, namely that water exists on Mars. What a surprise! Anything of great importance would be announced by glory-seeking politicians, e.g. Bill Clinton's discussion about possible microbial life on Mars, this in the mid '90's. As I said earlier, this will be forgotten in a week.

As I said earlier, this will be forgotten in a week. Your short attention span is your own business. Some of us are quite capable of understanding the significance of such breakthroughs and learning from them, which is fortunate as it is why we don't all still live in caves and hunt with sharpened sticks.

The annoucement has been made. It is flowing water on the Martian surface. Here is a new topic on the discovery.
