Update:

NASA's Curiosity rover delivers its first soil sample to its chemistry and mineralogy instrument.

Whodunnit?!!

Did you folks see the "self portrait" of the rover?

First thought that comes to mind... who clicked them

I read later that the way the different snaps were stitched together the robotic arm with the camera got itself hidden!

Any guesses what this Major find (if true) might be?
Reports are rtickling out about a possible "big find" by the Mars rover.

Suspected unicellular organism, similar to what is found in remote uninhabited deserts of the earth! (pure speculation!). There was actually a talk in our office (from the guys working in the ISS dept.) that it was a chemical composition similarity and some evolved microorganism. But it could well be a contamination from earth! (possibility is 1 in one million) - that is the level of cleanliness maintained in the clean room used for component manufacturing and integration. But then lets wait and watch till we get a official confirmation.

This year seems to have thrown up lots and lots of surprises, starting from "faster than light" particles being found, then Rover landing and now this! Most important is that we still have about a month to go before this fascinating year will come to an end! Who knows even the world may end as predicted

Wow ! That would be amazing!

But how on earth (er... how on Mars!) would anyone finally be able to decide if this was indeed contamination or a tiny Martian?

Going to break the ice! But don't believe my words untill you hear it from the Horse's mouth itself!

NASA has found traces of Methane from the sample that was collected! Methane was the source of origin for life on earth! With constantly changing Martian atmosphere and heavy storms, they are wondering how did methane survived/formed in the first place!

Source: Wait untill NASA talks! I may be wrong too.
