    NASA says Mars discovery isn't 'earthshaking' after all


    After telling the world that the Mars Curiosity rover made a discovery "for the history books," NASA is now downplaying the importance of what was found.

    NASA spokesperson Guy Webster elaborated some on the discovery, hoping to realign people's expectations.

    "It won't be earthshaking but it will be interesting," Webster told Time. "As for history books, the whole mission is for the history books."

    Those RTGs really have very long life, the one in Voyager 2 is still functioning.
