What has NASA’s Curiosity rover uncovered on Mars?

What we do know is that it's bound to be some super-exciting science, with a number of big NASA researchers taking part in the discussion - including people who directly work with the samples Curiosity has been diligently gathering on Mars. NASA has scheduled a live discussion for 2 p.m. ET focusing on "new science results" from the rover, although the nature of what has been found remains to be seen as no details will be made public before then.

Speculation is now rife as to what NASA could have found on Mars, with many amateur astronomers hopeful that evidence of extraterrestrial life has finally been uncovered. On Monday, NASA announced the procedure went as planned and the machine is now ready to continue its task.

For the unknown, NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has been exploring the Red Planet since it landed in August 2012 and the rover had just begun drilling into the planet's surface for the first time in the last 18 months.

The public is encouraged to send questions on social media by using #askNASA and can tune in to watch the press conference on all the major social media platforms, including Facebook Live, Twitch TV, Ustream, YouTube, and Twitter/Periscope.

However, the rover had to pass one more hurdle and move the rock powder from its drill into its internal lab. Meanwhile, the delivery of sample into the rover's chemistry lab is also slated to occur in a few days.

Late last month, the rover used it's newly function drill to collect rock samples for the first time in almost two years. FED lets Curiosity drill using the force of its robotic arm to push its drill forward and pull it back as it spins.

Woman's late stage cancer defeated with new treatment
Perkins hopes she's cured - a word she is nearly afraid to utter - but knows that the cancer "could come back tomorrow". As part of her cancer treatment, Judy has had a total mastectomy as all as having all her lymph nodes removed.

"This was no small feat. The gambit paid off, and we finally have an integral sample we've not gotten", Vasavada mentioned. "From what we know now, the answer is yes", Michael Meyer, lead scientist for NASA's Mars Exploration Program at NASA headquarters, said of Curiosity's discoveries in 2013. It's quite remarkable to have a moment like this, five years into the mission.

So far, results have been promising and mission control has even ordered Curiosity to return to old sites that it visited while the drill was unserviceable. "It means we can resume studying Mount Sharp, which Curiosity is climbing, with our full range of scientific tools".
