The scientific community is agog with anticipation waiting for NASA’s announcement of a major discovery at 11.30 a.m EDT Monday Sept. 28, 2015 (11.30 p.m. KL Monday / 1.30 a.m Sydney Tuesday).
Some people are guessing that NASA will announce the discovery of water whilst others are hoping that it will be an announcement on the discovery of life.
I am going to follow the smart money because of NASA’s announcement that a mystery has been solved.
I think NASA will announce that it has conclusive proof that water exists in liquid form on Mars.
This announcement will solved the mystery of the annual lightening and darkening of patches of Mars during the Martian summer and Martian winter.
What’s your guess?
Please don’t say that NASA has found ET or little green men 🙂
