What will NASA announce on Thursday ? Image Credit: NASA
It appears as though the space agency's Curiosity rover has discovered something interesting on Mars.
The announcement, which reportedly concerns "new science results from NASA's Mars Curiosity rover", will be made during a "live discussion" at 2 pm EDT on Thursday, June 7.

Hosted by Michelle Thaller of NASA's Planetary Science Division, the event will be attended by a number of scientists who will talk about the new discovery, whatever it turns out to be.

According to NASA, the findings are "embargoed by the journal Science until then."

Update: Details of the announcement can be viewed - here.

I know these is will be ridiculous questions but seeing how it is you Qx I'll go right ahead and ask.  How long do you think Opportunity should run before its sudden death is beyond suspicion?   Second question, do you think NASA is faking a giant dust storm on Mars in order to cover up the fact that Opportunity made a momentous discovery?

They are indeed ridiculous questions But let me play your probing game one more time; take a deep breath, extricate yourself from all the stress *snip* and try to make a difference between conspiracionist and ppl like me questioning decisions taken by operations at NASA.  Look at this photo and ask yourself; really wasn't worth investigating more? Or take some close up photos?

This shorthand for "I know the truth and you don't" doesn't fool anyone. Apart from you apparently.

No, it isn't worth investigating. And this keys into two issues the "ancient aliens" bunch simply don't understand; firstly, organisms don't exist in pure isolation. This was the same mistake by those on this board who thought dark smudges in Martian aerial photography were trees. Trees cannot exist without a ecosystem. You wouldn't get one bunch of trees on an otherwise dead, radioactive planet. Same goes for this photo. In the UK, you can walk along the beach and find ammonite fossils sticking out of the ground. I have a cupboard full of them at home. An ammonite on Mars would presumably hav... [More]

I notice you failed to answer either question and the above was looked at and dismissed as naturally occurring as it should've been but what, exactly, do you suggest they do to further explore that, drill it?   There was no decision with Opportunity, it is inside a massive dust storm that has cut off the solar panels and therefore its power.  Now answer the questions.

Merc, unusual as it is for me to defend qx, but he didn't make these claims, it was geraldnewfie in the Huge Dust Storm Hits Opportunity Mars Rover thread, here.

You are correct, Thanks and sorry qx, I got my threads mixed up.
