With the Perseverance Rover succesfully landing on Mars and setting off in search of life signs, I thought we might have our own bit of Mars based fun. So to that end, I've created my version of a Mars like surface. Can you now show us what life we might find there?

It looks like we have a bit of global warming going on there Jacob 🙂
Indeed, Dave; but has that ever stopped the go(ld) getters, (be they fools or no fools)?
Thanks, Dave! There are little green men!!
Ah so it is true about the little green men 🙂
Thanks for that Rafael. That's a week of nightmares to look forward to. At least F.Quill's little green men are playfully amusing each other doing shadow puppets — although that is a terrible depiction of a rabbit top left — and not terrorising us poor humans.
We defeated the HG Wells Tripod monstors with the comon cold, so if those giant spiders feel like invading Earth, COVID will make short work of them. Thanks China. You might just have saved humanity after all.
Hi Trevor! All weekend,... wondering what is the "terrible depiction of a rabbit"...? That was a "peace sign"... from another era. The front green man is "hands up - don't shoot", centre-right is "jazz hands", far-right is "ET - Call Home", far-left is "A-ok" and the first, left of centre is supposed to be the peace sign, but now that I see it, again - it is a terrible rabbit! Maybe I will get it right next time the martian comes for a photo-shoot! BTW - Don't use a green screen with them! ha-ha!
Nice one Rafael.
Trevor, we all know from watching old episodes of Star Trek, that all aliens speak English so we'll have no trouble talking to Rafael's creatures. 🙂

Images sent back from the Perseverance Rover prove once and for all that there is Life on Mars.
Your image is gorgeous, Dave!

In other words, much like some of the humans who live on the Planet Earth, Graham? 😮
"QAnon adherents apparently believe that Joe Biden is actually a malfunctioning robot wearing human-like skin. The strange beliefs were revealed during an interview on CNN."
yes the irony that satellites are what gives flat earth mobs access to internet so they can read about their BS ideas is lost on them
We got there just in time for breakfast Jane 🙂
Thanks for you comment on the starter image Jane. It was made using a combination of World Creator, Blender and Adobe Substance.

Graham, that reminds me of WALL.E 🙂 Nice job with the refraction.
Graham, is that the orchid that is too hard to grow Down Under?
Thank-you for doing this! It is a fun break that I look forward to, now. I love seeing what everyone can do. Some crazy skills and cute techniques from the participants.
Haha - I love it 🙂

Real estate is selling fast on Mars. 😀
There are always bonus points for combining two SFTW images K - Nice job 🙂
