Yep, so Mars is something like Earth's great (times a few billion) grandfather (or grandmother).
Time Magazine has showcased some pretty amazing images of Mar's landscape. They look eerily familiar . . . Is that a dried-up delta? Dunes?
If Mars is/was capable of producing these natural water features, then it's not completely insane to suggest the possibility of Marian life, is it?
. . . maybe there's oil . . .
Anyway, enjoy these beautiful photographs.
