    Dr. Grotzinger chose the word "historic" for a very specific reason. This discovery is big enough that the day it is announced will be forever remembered as the day that . . . .

    Aren't you glad that the clueless won't get a chance to run the country again, just yet? Yeah. Me too.

      There's a reason they're not going to announce for another few weeks. That he called it "historic" is what bugs me most about his remarks, actually.

      I don't mean to come off as a hardened skeptic; i really hope it's something big.

        At the moment, Dr. G looks like a World Class academic pro who knows how to get the biggest possible bang out of a big scientific discovery. Hurrah, I say. We need more government scientists like that.
        We don't know that there's a big scientific discovery, unless they've discovered hype on Mars.
        •  Yeah, that's it. (1+ / 0-)

          Government scientists worried that the recent election may have depleted Earth's supply of hype to unsustainably low levels have discovered the solar system's largest known deposit of hype on Mars. Describing the vast deposit as "astonishingly superficial, and easy to mine, even for hype", Dr. O.I. Balloon in an exclusive interview with Geraldo Rivera told the reporter he did not yet have further details of the discovery but expected to i the coming months.
