Apparently something at least a geologist specialized on Mars would be excited about. Wink

My guess it's about a detection of organic molecules they didn't expect to see there.

There's out of control parroting regarding @MarsCuriosity. The "one for the history books" refers to the mission, not any one new discovery.

Well, as per the conference, there is a detection of organics but they are unable to rule out an origin from Earth. So no celebrations yet.
