During our 11 minute plus discussion with Dr. Ralph Milliken, we talked about Curiosity and its drilling, the spat of computer problems it has been experiencing, possibly from cosmic rays, and the finding of possible building blocks of life in the drilling samples. We talked about benign water, carbon and others elements present in the soil and the strong possibility of there having been a habitable environment on Mars.
