When Grandma was green

Posted on the January 28th, 2010

I don’t know about you, but the Martians are a favorite point of reference when I’m completely dumbfounded by something. Say, I’ve just read about one of the latest, particularly appalling, acts by humanity as a whole, I take refuge in the indignant “What would the Martians say about that?” or a more mournful, “I really want to go live on Mars!”

Then around 2000 came some new scientific evidence that led to some theorizing and writing that, in fact, we earthlings may just have Martian ancestry. Interessante!

This month HiRise (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) from the University of Arizona, posted some recent, strangely colorful photos of the old home place (one above).

Have to say, though, the little guys themselves seem to be keeping a pretty low profile.
