A few days later NASA unveiled the image for all to see. The caption noted a “huge rock formation … which resembles a human head … formed by shadows giving the illusion of eyes, nose and mouth.” The authors reasoned it would be a good way to engage the public and attract attention to Mars.

Yup. It was a common fixture in NASA publications for two decades before the conspiritards noticed it and declared it “The Photo NASA Doesn’t Want You To See!!!”

If Jack said there was a face on Mars, then there was one. He’d know.
