A spokesperson for NASA told SPACE.com that the big announcement Tuesday would again involve a discovery by the Opportunity rover and not its twin, Spirit. The agency did not provide detail regarding the science involved, and the spokesperson would not elaborate.
The announcement will be made at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. and carried live on NASA TV.
