more organics detected

NASA confirmed the discovery of organics on Mars based on materials drilled by the Curiosity rover. This in addition to the methane detections from before. I read the article on the Discovery web site. Explaining both the organics and the methane will require far more analysis and likely not be answered with the current instruments. All that said, microscopic life would have a tough go, today, on the red planet. Still, it is encouraging to see markers, hints, tells of the possible building blocks of life.
