    A small part of the Cydonia region that resembles a face seen in a photo taken by the Viking 1 Orbiter and released by NASA/JPL on 25 July 1976.

    For almost half a century, people have been dreaming of reaching Mars, sending probes there in order to catch images of the Red Planet. Countless books have been written and films made about it, but even when we watch actual footage from Mars, it remains a mystery that haunts our imagination.

    Some objects on the Martian surface are bizarre, while others look like cyclopic constructions or giant sculptures made by modern artists. Human faces, giant spoons, strange canals, and unnaturally round craters - you can find everything there, but no traces of humankind yet. But maybe one day we will be able to fix that and will see all these things with our own eyes!
