Like a celebrity under constant photographic scrutiny, Mars continues to show fresh and surprising faces. And as with an enigmatic Hollywood star, more than 10,000 new images of the red planet reveal more puzzles than answers.

"Mars just keeps astounding us with its complexity," said Ken Edgett, staff scientist for Malin Space Science Systems, which built and operates the Mars Orbiter Camera aboard NASA's Mars Global Surveyor.

Sasquatch Footprints Discovered On Mars!

The image at the link below clearly shows a footprint in the Martian Landscape which, due to its size, can confidently be assumed not to be human. The footprint, three toes of which are unmistakable, is to the right of center in the photo. More to the right is a less distinct print headed in the same direction.

I don't see it. Let me get those "desperately want to believe" glasses on.

The cow jumped over the moon...guess the Sasquatch (a.k.a. "Sassy") was not to be outdone and aimed for Mars given its current close proximity. Just missed...a bit more to the right and he (she?) would have made it past the edge of Mars. :wink:

Kryptonite Found In Abundance On Mars

Photo at the link below clearly shows masses of green Kryptonite just lying around on the planet's surface. This ends, for many, the years of speculation about the true fate of the planet Krypton.
