Bigfoot, creatures, canals, and faces on Mars? What is really going on here?

As we explore worlds far beyond ours, it might seem strange that we find seemingly familiar objects on distant soils. This phenomenon has been going on since astronomers first began their detailed studies of Mars’ surface.

As fascinating as it would be to actually see a sculpture of an iguana on the surface of Mars, it turns out these visions are not just the stuff of weird legend but the result of something that makes us very human.

To explain what’s going on here we turn you to this great video from The Good Stuff, one of our favorite YouTube channels!

I love the final wrap up in this video! It is such a wonderful reminder of how interconnected our collective future is.

As we turn our eyes and our exploration horizons toward space, the science we need to succeed will require deep collaboration. We will need differing perspectives, and shared knowledge.

There is a lot to be optimistic about when it comes to the future. More than ever, we are connected and able to share ideas and inspiration across cultures and distances. And if that doesn’t prove it’s still an amazing world, I’m not sure what does!

Stay beautiful & keep laughing!
