Not so Fast

Is this what they told the President? Martian soil may contain detrimental substance

NASA's Phoenix spacecraft has detected the presence of a chemically reactive salt in the Martian soil, a finding that if confirmed could make it less friendly to potential life than once believed.

I thought they were ready to announce they found the "potential for life" on Mars? They even briefed the President "about the discovery of something more 'provocative' than the discovery of water existing on the Martian surface."

I think they need to take a deep breath, calm down, and get their data sorted before they go off on a limb about something before they know for sure.
