Today, at 2 p.m. EST, NASA will announce results from the Mars Curiosity rover at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco. This announcement has been hyped up ever since chief Curiosity scientist John Grotzinger was quoted by NPR as saying the rover’s Sample Analysis at Mars instrument, also known as SAM, had made a discovery for “the history books.”  Mr. Grotzinger may have gotten a bit ahead of himself because NASA quickly back-pedaled, explaining that the findings had been overblown. Regardless of they found life on Mars or not we can all agree that the photos shot by Curiosity have been nothing short of amazing.
