 PLANETARY SCIENCE: AGAINST STANDING MARTIAN WATER
On the basis of these observations, the MER science team[1,2] has interpreted the bedrock as siliciclastic sediments deposited in a shallow body of briny water, with subsequent evaporation leaving behind sulphate minerals.
They inferred that the rocks are composed of roughly 50 wt% siliciclastic material derived from basaltic rocks, 40 wt% evaporite sulphates, and 10 wt% haematite[2].

Daubert's general framework for analyzing expert testimony, which requires the trial judge to ensure that expert opinion is reliable and relevant, applies to all expert testimony, and not simply to "scientific" testimony.
The court of appeals is nevertheless mistaken in ruling that there is a categorical distinction, for purposes of applying those factors, between expert testimony based on "application of scientific principles" and expert testimony based on "skill- or experience-based observation." Pet.
The term "science" is commonly understood to describe "a process for proposing and refining theoretical explanations about the world that are subject to further testing and refinement." Ibid., quoting Brief for American Association for the Advancement of Science et al.
