Wikipedia on Truth:
"Truth is most often used to mean in accord with fact or reality, or fidelity to an original or to a standard or ideal. The opposite of truth is falsehood, which, correspondingly, can also take on a logical, factual, or ethical meaning. Various theories and views of truth continue to be debated among scholars and philosophers".
Although, the discovery of perchlorate on Mars' surface was a huge disappointment, such an endeavor held no guarantees. The Mars explorer was launched to find what WAS on the surface rather than what we hoped to find there. Research does not guarantee the findings will match our pre-conceived notions. It should not be curbed or undertaken only to meet a desired outcome.
Naturally, we prefer findings that match our best hopes and dreams. We are predisposed to explain away the existence of perchlorate for example, as an analytical error. If we had discovered what we had anticipated, it would not be put to such a rigorous analysis. But, despite our best efforts to say it isn't so, perchlorate presence is undeniable. Whether it is the heliocentric theory, a round-Earth theory or Egyptian influence in the Tarot, for example, there is a natural tendency to reject what is not immediately obvious. As researchers and scholars, it is incumbent upon us to reach beyond the mere obvious while remaining undaunted by the political implications of these findings.
Galileo's heliocentric theory was controversial. Few were willing to accept it and fewer still were willing to consider it seriously. And yet for those who did, few could be swayed otherwise by the arguments founded on dogmatic belief. Can we learn lessons from the past?
