I saw the Sierra Nevada Mts for the first time, and in the wrinkles and folds of these barren hills you can see faces and anything else you wish much like cloud watching. So, in light of this PLUS the fact it is impossible to judge the real 3D of an object from a 2D photo…was NASA and/or space enthusists simply stupid to assume the “face on Mars” was some kind of unnatural, alien formation? I recall this being kicked around quite a bit in the late 1970s as if it were proof of intellegent life, but what intellegent life on earth jumped to that conclusion???
What’s the SD on how this formation could cause such a stir?
