[SOT/](John Grotzinger NASA's Mars Exploration Program)("What we would be able to do is with our increased ability on MSL is we'd really get a sense for what kind of environment it was specifically that the water present in. Was it there for a long peroid of time, we'll be able to do that a little bit better than in the past. But mostly we get a really good chemical assessement of how, not only the water was present but whether not the environment could preserve organic compounds, which is very important for us as a science community, because when you stop short and ask the question can you ever hope to find evidence of life on Mars, you first have to look for the calling cards, traces if you will, we call them chemo fossils, little bits of chemical evidence that suggest this is the kind of place that you should go back to and look into more detail and our hope is if we find such bits of chemical evidence that there will be quite a rich record. This would be the kind of place you'd want to go back to and do sample return for example. You're going to want to go into progressively higher levels in your analysis and this is the way we do it on Earth, you go out to the field there's lots of different rocks to look at, you never know which one, but you zoom in and bring something back to the lab.
