When surveying the amazing pictures sent from Europe’s Mars Orbiter back to Earth you would expect to enjoy images of mist-capped volcanoes and deep craters.
What you couldn’t predict is seeing Mohandas ‘Mahatma’ Gandhi’s profile etched into the rock.
But an Italian space enthusiast called Matteo Lanneo has found exactly that.
He was scanning through the latest images sent by Europe’s Mars Express probe when he came across this uncanny resemblance to the father of the Indian nation.
The head appears to have a moustache and shaven head and prominent eyebrows, just like the political leader.
It’s not the first time that a face has been spotted on Mars.
