It was the startling photograph that spawned a thousand conspiracy theories.

A photograph taken by the American Viking 1 Orbiter in July 1976 appeared to show a hill in the shape of a human face on the dusty surface of Mars.

But a new photograph released today, which was taken with Nasa’s high-definition HiRISE camera, finally shows the Face on Mars for what it really is: just a large, rocky hill in the middle of the Martian desert.

This is the closest ever image of the famous outcrop which should, once and for all, scotch the conspiracy theorists who believe that the 'face' is conclusive evidence of intelligent life on Mars.

Within days of its discovery in 1976, space enthusiasts were speculating that the structure was man-made and had been built by Martians in the distant past.

I'm glad NASA took care of that myth, although I'm sure there will be consipracy theories that live on.

In the beginning there were only probabilities. The universe could only come into existence if someone observed it. It does not matter that the observers turned up several billion years later. The universe exists because we are aware of it.

oh, don't puncture our illusions. Anyway, what about the pyramids, eh? What about the pyramids?

It's hard to understand why anyone would build a "face" on a planet anyway...thanks for posting still waters, now hopefully some of the conspiracy theorists will give up.

I think the most fun I have had in months on the internet was playing with the Mars GPS map. I did not even remember to check for that face until much later. I did not really even bother much even looking. I was to into the planet itself. There is a massive gouge like something ripped into it. I did find a few happy faces inside craters. One I even did a print screen on* above pic, If you go check out the map try the shaded relief, it makes all sorts of things look like they are there, but as soon as you change the view, what you saw is gone. :D

You can see the Mars vegetables clearly in these new shots.

Im afraid you guys are too cynical and comical to keep any true believers here for long. You never encourage them , I might try on occassions to play both sides but I see your reactions. You act like circling vultures ready to plunge on your prey. You need to feed it appears.

I think I distinctly remember Tim Robbins and Don Cheadle proving that the limestone-esque face is just covered with a thick layer of dirt

Richard Hoagland has made a career and a lot of money on seeing a "face" where there is only a "pile of rocks" on Mars. Damn straight that those who base their thinking on rationality are going to attack junk like this.

...and you just gotta love the first comment on the linked page. Paraphrasing..."How do we know that this is real evidence"?
