NASA keeping quiet on Curiosity’s big find

NASA’s Curiosity Rover has made a “historic” find on Mars, but NASA is not prepared to share the information with the public just yet.

“This data is going to be one for the history books, it’s looking really good,” said Grotzinger, lead scientist for the Curiosity mission at NASA.

The data came from Curiosity’s on-board chemistry lab, known as SAM (Sample Analysis at Mars), which is used to analyse the soil and detect organic molecules on the Red Planet.

NASA wants to inspect the findings further before revealing what was actually found.
