  •  I think there is huge news here. I'm amazed at how (0+ / 0-)

    low key the scientists are staying. But, I doubt they'd say there was "earthshaking" news if anything less than a biomarker was detected. Of course its all conjecture right now, but they were using an instrument designed not just to detect simple organic compounds, but very specific types of biomarkers than are unlikely to be generated through abiotic processes. If it turns out they have found something like this, the ramifications would be huge in many different ways. I don't think people are overstating the significance of this. It's the other way around.  

    Just doing my part to piss off right wing nuts, one smart ass comment at a time.
