A new high resolution image of the infamous Face on Mars has revealed it as nothing more than a rocky hill.
The original Face on Mars was photographed in 1976 by the Viking spacecraft and generated years of conspiracy theories, later however newer photographs of the site revealed the face as little more than a trick of the light.
"It was the startling photograph that spawned a thousand conspiracy theories."
