    Default NASA 'major' announcement on Mars discovery (7 June, 2018)

    I wonder what it will be? They are supposed to tell today...
    any guesses?

    Probably a microbe or sheets of ice or something like that I'd imagine

    My guess is this is part of 'weaponized' disclosure that began with recent New York Times articles. Tom de Long has been chosen to be the 'everyman' who walks the average American through the process, with the backing of high credibility witnesses and insiders.

    Probably water, methane or microbe as has been previously stated on this thread. But it will ramp up pretty quickly from here. Expect a tsunami of new evidence in the next year. The Pentagon requires infinite funding.

    I don't watch the World Cup, but I'd totally watch that one.

    Imagine a Reptilian in a jersey kicking around a soccer ball.

    I'd pay to see that.

    The NASA Rover found Organic molecules 'fundamental to our search for life'.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.6075e287a095

    "In puffs of gas from rocks more than 3 billion years old dug up by one of NASA's robotic explorers on Mars, scientists have identified several complex organic molecules — possible building blocks for ancient life.

    It's not aliens. (It's never aliens.)

    But it is “consistent with the past presence of biology,” said Ken Williford, an astrobiologist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “And it makes us more confident that if biomarkers” — or direct evidence of biologic activity — “are there, we might find them.”

    In two studies published today in the journal Science, this new finding from NASA's Curiosity rover is paired with another discovery: The planet's methane — another organic molecule usually (but not always) produced by living beings — varies with the seasons. In the past, scientists have seen plumes and patches of this intriguing substance, but this is the first time they've been able to discern a pattern in its presence. The result could pave the way for future missions to pin down the methane's source.

    The closer we look, the more we see that Mars is a complex, dynamic planet that — particularly early in its history — was more conducive to life than we might have previously imagined,” said Williford, who was not involved in either study.

    A reminder: Organic molecules aren't necessarily produced by organisms; they're just chemical compounds that contain carbon. But they're of interest to astrobiologists because they are the essential ingredients in all the chemistry that drives life on Earth."

    in other words, paraphrasing "All we need is a larger budget for the next 5 years (or so), and we may be able to get some more answers to this 'dynamic' planet" (deposit 100 billion into our account)

    NASA’s Curiosity rover has uncovered signatures of an environment on the red

    by the Mars rover over the last few years, scientists have identified an abundant
    source of organic matter in the ancient soil, and traced some of the planet’s
    atmospheric methane to its roots. The findings could help to guide the search for
    ancient microbial life and improve our understanding of seasonal processes on Mars.

    One of the amusing conspiracy theories is that the rover is on a remote island in Canada Arctic. Sooooooooo finding a microbe is likely

    As a form of tiniest disclosure I welcome it....for what it may do to help a few more wake up....

    Insiders have been saying for a while now that there will be a slow, drip, drip disclosure for the general public. I assume first they will reveal that there is life on mars, with this announcement, they're halfway there. Then they will probably reveal elements of the secret space programme. Like the black flying triangles, which everyone has seen by now, it is embarrassing that they're still trying to pretend they don't exist and they're not USAF craft. After that it will probably be life on other planets, such as the moons of Saturn. I wonder if they'll ever get to intelligent life that's more advanced than ours. An embarrassingly large number of people have been having channelling and telepathic contacts with various ET groups, at some point this flood of information will have to hit the general public and mainstream consciousness. Is there anyone actually left on this planet that doesn't think there's something going on with ETs and UFOs?

    The discovery of organic molecules on Mars hasn't really hit home in the mainstream media. Those molecules came from a lifeform, case closed about other life in the universe...

    Yep, folks need to realize just what 'organic material' infers. It came from material that was once living. Ever wonder what soil is? Broken down organic material from once living material obviously mixed with inorganic material (rocks, stones). Layer upon layer.

    Soil is organic! So is oil.

    They already told us there’s flowing water on mars, methane production, and organic molecules. This is replication of their 2014 results. Besides, they have that microbial fossil meteorite that came from mars that they found in Antarctica.

    why the memory hole game?

    If repeating previous research is “major” I wonder what words they’re saving to use when they actually find some insects.
