NASA Curiosity rover finds Life on MarsAE Mind Science Site: http://www.aemnd.com/scienceSubscribe: http://www.youtube.com/aemindscienceWhat's good everyone.. This is Luis Angel With AE Mind Science. For today's video, I wanted to talk real quick about a huge announcement that NASA plans to have very shortly. As you know, they sent out a Rover called Curiosity out to Mars and this little robot has been getting busy. It tested some Martian Soil and it has found something. As of yet, NASA Hasn't said what they found but they should announce it once they carefully look at all the data.Comment down below to let me know what you think about the Curiosity possible mars findings. Do you think there is Life on Mars?..-Luis AngelSubscribe: http://www.youtube.com/aemindscienceAdd to Circles: http://www.aemind.com/gplusLike: http://www.facebook.com/aemind1Follow: http://www.twitter.com/aemindSite: http://www.aemind.comHere is the Article from Space.com (goo.gl/A6Pn5):NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has apparently made a discovery "for the history books," but we'll have to wait a few weeks to find out what the new Red Planet find may be, media reports suggest.The discovery was made by Curiosity's Sample Analysis at Mars instrument, NPR reported today (Nov. 20). SAM is the rover's onboard chemistry lab, and it's capable of identifying organic compounds the carbon-containing building blocks of life as we know it.SAM apparently spotted something interesting in a soil sample Curiosity's huge robotic arm delivered to the instrument recently."This data is gonna be one for the history books," Curiosity chief scientist John Grotzinger, of Caltech in Pasadena, told NPR. "It's looking really good."Grotzinger said the rover team won't be ready to announce just what SAM found for several weeks yet, NPR reported. The scientists want to check and double-check the results, to make sure they're for real.The $2.5 billion Curiosity rover landed inside Mars' huge Gale Crater on Aug. 5, kicking off a two-year mission to determine if Mars has ever been capable of supporting microbial life.The car-size robot carries 10 different instruments to aid in its quest, but SAM is the rover's heart, taking up more than half of its science payload by weight.In addition to analyzing soil samples, SAM also takes the measure of Red Planet air. Many scientists are keen to see if Curiosity detects any methane, which is produced by many lifeforms here on Earth. A SAM analysis of Curiosity's first few sniffs found no definitive trace of the gas in the Martian atmosphere, but the rover will keep looking.Curiosity began driving again Friday (Nov. 16) after spending six weeks testing its soil-scooping gear at a site called "Rocknest." The rover will soon try out its rock-boring drill for the first time on the Red Planet, scientists have said.=================================AE Mind Science Scientist and Notable Individuals Inspiration: Albert Einstein, Neil Degrasse Tyson, Michio Kaku, Niels Bohr, Isaac Newton, Richard Dawkins, Fred Alan Wolf, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Alexander Graham Bell, Benjamin Franklin, Edwin Hubble, Ernst Mach, Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler, Stephen Hawking, Werner Heisenberg, Max Born, Max Planck, Enrico FermiScience Books: Physics of the Future, The Grand Design, The Space ChroniclesTypes of Science which inspires AE Mind Science: Physics, Quantum Physics, AstroPhysics, PhysOther AE Mind Science Inspiration: Universe, Science, Exploration, Human Advancement, Dark energy, Einstein's Cosmological Constant, Einstein-Rosen Bridge, Grand unification theory, Loop quantum gravity, M-theory, String theory, Supersymmetry, Theory of everything, Unparticle physics, Particle physics, Standard Model, Electromagnetism, Field theory, General Relativity, Nasa, Space, Rover, Rovers, Curiosity, Mission, lander, shuttle,
