NASA: No Signs of Life on Mars

Waiting for Ziggy


You know how NASA recently got all of our hopes up when one of its scientists told NPR "This data is gonna be one for the history books" in reference to data coming back from Curiosity's organic matter detector?  Well, it turns out that you probably won't be finding this data in your public school's US history books anytime soon.

So what was all the hype about? NASA says that the rumors and speculation floating around on the net are incorrect, and that the exciting data from Curiosity is actually in regards to the rover's first use of its "full array of analytical instruments to investigate a drift of sandy soil."
