Face on Mars disappears in hi-res photo

The infamous "Face on Mars" that prompted a generation of conspiracy theories about cover-ups of Martian civilizations, is not present in a closer, higher-resolution image of the site taken by UA's HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

  1. I don’t know about anyone else but I know I can see the face
    Maybe it’s a fake for more funding for NASA or Goggles trying to get more people to sign up who knows. Anyway check out my Face of Mars and make a comment all comments welcome.
