Faces Found on Mars (reprise)
Opportunity's pancams prove once and for all that those Martians love to make earthglyphs. Experts speculate that during an unknown martian epoch, inhabitants used this site as a shrine to many icons of the 70s. Many of the glyphs have eroded through the millenia but the remaining evidence is striking. (I know... that was only 20-30 years ago, but who knows with the ol' space/time continuum/paralax/worm hole conjectures.)
