Let me guess, they are going to announce that they've found the first solid evidence that intermediate amounts of liquid water once flowed on Mars. rolleyes.gif

Whose turn *is* it to breathlessly announce the 'discovery of water' on Mars? I've lost track of the score....

Whatever it is, prepare for public underwhelment...but no doubt we will find it most interesting! wink.gif

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Someone I'm working with at JPL was invited (but cannot) to be part of the chat during the conference. She works with gullies, so that's what she suspects is the topic of the announcement.
