Life on Mars

The Daily Telegraph has posted a story about the Galle Crater on Mars looking like a happy face – decades after NASA’s Viking Orbiter I took pictures of it in the late 1970s and 22 years after Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons made reference to it in Watchmen.

The Watchmen is great. It was Ozymandias all along, by the way

It’s been a busy time for the Red Planet lately, after the Mars explorer Spirit beamed back images of what appeared to be an alien lounging about on a rock. There’s been no sign of a giant blue man up there yet, although you will see it happen this summer.

You can click here for some high-res images of the crater.

What are you smiling at, eh?
