hannah: Surface of Mars, photographed by Mars Express, 25th November 2005.
Image runs from 32°S 201°E about 710 km due south across the Terra Sirenum highlands to 44°S 201°E. The Sirenum Fossae run across the top of the 2nd image. The 5th and 6th images show a central section of the 300 km-wide Newton Crater, including what looks like part of the central peak complex (notice dunes, dark blue, on the left hand side).
Composite of 3 visible light images for colour, and one monochrome image for detail. Colour balance is not naturalistic.

Yup. True fact. But it’s kind of commonly accepted that you just don’t tell someone who landed on the Moon that it’s bullshit, because then they have to punch you in the face. For their honor. It’d be like challenging Buzz Aldrin to a duel. A Moon duel. With Moon rules.
