NASA to announce important new discovery about Mars today

This is unrelated to Stardust but I think that it will interest some people. NASA has said via their Twitter that they will be announcing an important new discovery about Mars at 2pm today on NASA TV.

I will be watching and you can also watch the announcement at http://www.nasa.gov/ntv

Very interesting flows there! Only one thing doesn't suit (so far), CRISM does not see anything. That flows are much smaller than the CRISM pixel scale (18m) of about 5m, but some HiRISE pictures show much larger areas covered by this dark flows. So CRISM should see something, shouldn't it.
