Apparently the Mars Disccovery Rover has discovered something that in the words of one of the project scientists "will rewrite the history books". It will be announced in the next week or two, pending confirmation. Any guesses what it might be?
Here's my guess: some organic molecule in the soil which would be a major step toward abiogenesis. ?Nucleosides?
