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?

Martian Porn. That is why they are keeping it hidden.

One of the nails from the true cross, or a splinter from same. Which is why Mars is barren. It couldn't keep up with the demand on earth.

Well, if they found hard evidence of life it is hard to believe they could keep that from leaking out.

Rewriting the history books...? Maybe evidence that the Egyptians were on Mars. Or the Mayans? John Carter?

I agree. organic molecule, not one that might also occur separate from life (such as methane). Just about any sugar (ribose or deoxyribose, in keeping with your suggestion), fructose; adenosine, chlorophyll, peptides of more than a few amino acids. Could be quite interesting after one of those.

OOOOH! Little green men and women with little green "parts!" I can hardly wait. Hope they have gay Martian porn, too.

Re OP: I think that I have already seen it: it is a light source, three times as efficient as LED's, which should be the cat's pajamas for street lights and industrial applications. Further info is proprietary, so I can't say more about it at this time.

I just hope that it isn't as nasty as sodium vapor lamps.

Re Bubba, above: Not to worry. The light is bright white -- quite unlike the essentially monochromatic light of low pressure sodium lamps, or even the orange color of high pressure sodium lamps.

So Robert, at last. You've seen the light!

Maybe just a big misunderstanding.

Yeah. Right. The fix is in.

They thought they had discovered life on Mars but it turned out it was a Mars Bar wrapper that somehow got dropped into the rover.
