I think this one is going to be pretty exciting although I do like the news about the CO too, we're supposed to find out in the first week of Dec.........

 "The Curiosity team is still studying SAM's data to be sure of the results, Grotzinger added. Researchers plan to announce the discovery at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union, which runs from Dec. 3 to Dec. 7 in San Francisco."

Interestingly - um, well- here we go again...

Curiosity rover scientists seem set to annouce - after they do some fact checking, anyway - that the Curiosity rover did a sample analysis of the soil and found organic - that is, carbon-containing - compounds.

why are we drilling for oil 1 mile beneath the floor of a mile of ocean?

lots of dino's died there?

what that begs to ask is, is carbon based life frail or cheap.

sounds cheap to me. and oil has nothing to do with what we are talking about! lol. just that it is carbon based.

too funny they talk about titan, europa, etc that could have life when they are not nearly hospitable as mars.

Ahhh enlightenment.

It just goes to show that us humans can get so arrogant when it comes to things that we know nothing about...

Sorry guys.  The topic title may have confused. I do agree that there can be other forms of life based on materials other than carbon.  But we don't need to go there.  The article actually offers proof that there is plenty of carbon on Mars.  It has long been reported by official sources that there is no carbon on Mars - they were wrong yet again.  That was the point of the post.  Official sources were wrong again - throwing their ludicrous theories about as textbook fact.

For once I would agree with qmantoo...


Who says carbon based is the only kind......??

Like the seemingly abundant amount of lifeforms that look like they're thriving in the vacuum of space around our (and other) planets.  I wouldn't think that a carbon based lifeform could survive in such conditions, but who knows.  

As for Mars, much of the plant growth there at least looks carbon based.  While some of the evidence there looks very strange from our perspective much of it looks entirely too familiar.

But how can people ever believe that carbon life forms are the only kind out there? Just because it fits our world does not mean it has to be the way all the other worlds are made up.

This tired old refrain will finally die a quiet death, along with the old scientist's tale that Mars never had liquid oceans.

Yes - Mars has carbon now - and once had lots more carbon.

One by one, their false theories fall.
