    News From Mars: Curiosity Has Discovered Something: NASA Won't Say What

    Link: Big News From Mars? Rover Scientists Mum For Now : NPR

    ...They have some exciting new results from one of the rover's instruments. On the one hand, they'd like to tell everybody what they found, but on the other, they have to wait because they want to make sure their results are not just some fluke or error in their instrument...
    What are your thoughts on what the discovery could be?

    My suggestion: Larger than expected reserves of water [boring I know]
