Looking with my particularly jaundiced eye, all I see are a lot of rocks, maybe some sedimentary. With clearly defined channels all over the place on Mars, it's obvious to any schoolkid with a brain that there used to be some kind of flowing liquid on the surface, if only for a little while (a few million years). So that wouldn't be much of an announcement. Whoop-de-frickin-doo. On the other hand, I see a lot of markings on the rocks in those Oppotunity rover photos that look like plant and leaf impressions - criss-crossed little marks that look like Japanese bamboo paintings. They even found them in that hole they scraped away. They're pretty eroded after a billion or so years, but what do you expect? And as for those little blue balls... They're interesting and seem to be everywhere. They don't look like tektites to me. They're a puzzler. So I don't know. What could JPL announce that's so thrilling? All I know is what they consider important and what I consider important can be two very different things. Hey, maybe they have found a fossil of some kind. That would be cool. Do they release all of the photos they take to the net? http://qt.exploratorium.edu/mars/jpl-images/web/ or do they squirrel away some of the better ones for themselves?
