The 'jackpot' under Curiosity's wheels: NASA says rover has found more clues Mars once has microbial life

NASA's Curiosity rover has revealed how the ground under its wheels was once 'perfect' for life.

The rover is climbing a layered Martian mountain, and has found the ingredients for a 'stew of life', researchers said.

New NASA analysis revealed today points to a 'evidence of how ancient lakes and wet underground environments changed, billions of years ago, creating more diverse chemical environments that affected their favorability for microbial life.'

'There is so much variability in the composition at different elevations, we've hit a jackpot,' said John Grotzinger, of Caltech in Pasadena, California.

Hematite, clay minerals and boron are among the ingredients found to be more abundant in layers farther uphill, compared with lower, older layers examined earlier in the mission.

'Variations in these minerals and elements indicate a dynamic system,' Grotzinger said.

Curiosity in crisis: NASA reveals rover's drill has crippled its robotic arm and stranded it on the red planet

Engineers are troubleshooting a snag on NASA's Curiosity that's preventing the rover from moving its robotic arm and driving to another spot on Mars, the space agency said Tuesday.

The problem involves a motor in the rover's drill that is used to bore into rocks.

Curiosity has been taking pictures and tracking the weather, but doing little else for the past two weeks.

'We're keeping busy with using the other instruments on the rover while they do these tests,' said Ashwin Vasavada, project scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which manages the mission.

What is the real purpose behind the ‘fake news’ attack?

Instead of admitting wrongdoing after this embarrassment, the MSM has decided to double down and escalate the accusation that the alternative media is “fake news.” Meaning, the MSM wants people to believe that we are liars and amateurs, that they are the “professionals,” and that the public should ignore everything the alternative media has to say from now on. I have to point out, though, that the narrative of mainstream news versus “fake news” seems a little thin to me. Meaning, I believe there is more going on here than the MSM simply trying to save itself.

So then I got out my other camera, and did this.
