NASA hosts a news briefing at 1 p.m. EST, Wednesday, Dec. 6, to present new science results from the Mars Global Surveyor. The briefing will take place in the NASA Headquarters auditorium located at 300 E Street, S.W. in Washington and carried live on NASA Television and www.nasa.gov

They probably have a new high-res image of the face.
And it's... it's... it's...
They said "significant" find, not stomach-turning find.
"Significant" means water. Proof of life would be something more than "significant". Proof of intelligent life would be "earth shattering".
Silly DJF. You know it's gotta be either Art Bell or George Noury. ;P
Aviation Week Exclusive: Water Spotted on Surface of Mars"
Monday, December 4, 2006
Editor's note: According to an item first posted by Aviation Week and Space Technology magazine: "NASA is ready to announce major new findings about the presence of water currently emerging onto the surface of Mars.
If confirmed, this would increase the possibility that microbial life could have existed recently or possibly exists now on the Martian surface. The potential seepage of ground water onto or near the surface has been a key area of investigation by the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft (AW&ST Nov. 27, pp. 53-55).
The MGS spacecraft remains out of contact and is feared lost, as the new Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter also begins the search for evidence of Martian water."
NASA Mars announcement. Waiting for details.
The problem with Hoagland is he's a flat out kook bar. He finds "evidence" because he's looking so dam hard for it.
The trouble is, he knows more than enough science to actually be right sometimes. Just not yet.
Bush's fault. They're just doing Halliburton's bidding.
They spotted a candy wrapper.
Perhaps it's water, perhaps they've found the missing polar lander.
I'd say this upstages the Iraq Study Group.
Art Bell had a real JPL scientist on recently. Bell opened the door to let the JPL scientist argue against some of Hoagland's theories.
It was surprising to hear him just say something to the effect of "I don't see it, but I would not want to deny that someone else might have," or words to that effect.
It made the JPL scientist sound that much more credible (and generous) that he would not discount another's opinion, even when indirectly invited to do so.
A broken clock is right twice a day.
They have found an entire civilization of beings that look like this
Well, Hoaglands made a big deal about the "robot head" on the moon. I don't see it either. I emailed George when Hoagland was on and basically said "If we took 100 sewing machines and dropped them on Mars 100,000 years ago, we would find them in various shapes. Some totally eroded and unrecognizable. Some almost pristine. Most would be broken and corroded, but the various parts would be laying around."
You wouldn't find a needle here. Then a wheel a quarter mile away. Then a spool of thread at the other side of the crater sort of thing.
OTOH, I do agree that it's at least POSSIBLE that NASA amd the military are covering things up. There was some fellow in England who got convicted of hacking into JPL's computers.
He basically said he found lots of evidence of SOME PEOPLE at JPL who's sole purpose in life was to tamper and airbrush photos, and that if we knew the truth, we'd be astounded.
