Three pictures of a peculiar formation on the Red Planet

On July 31, 1976 the mother ship of the American robot Viking-1 photographed a curious rock formation on the surface of Mars, which soon became known as the "Mars face". Many people believed that this particular "sculpture", about 1.5 km in length, was the product of a Martian civilization, until the European Mars Explorer ‘Mars Express’ took a much sharper picture at a totally different illumination by the Sun. Now all of a sudden the face was no longer recognisable. (Photo ESA/DLR, Berlin, 18 x 28 cm) But still postcards are being sold, like the card that is part of this set of three photos. These were published by editions Galaxy Contact in France with the permission of NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the manager of the Viking project. This set also includes an even wider photo print (17x12 cm) of the area around the Mars face, from the archives of space reporter Piet Smolders.
