When the first person set his/her foot on Mars, his/her face will be marked on Mars.

The subject, a human face set into the landscape, was formed naturally by micro crystal on the microscope glass slide.  The photomicrograph was taken using a transmitted light microscopy (4X objective Lens) and digital camera.

Wikipedia: Since the 20th century, there have been several proposed human missions to Mars both by government agencies and private companies (NASA, SpaceX, … ). But no person has set foot on the planet, and there have been no return missions.

On July 25th, 1976, NASA’s Viking 1 orbiter taken and sent back a photo of the Mars surface, a human face set into the vast landscape, called “Face On Mars”. Just by coincidence, 43 years later I saw the same scenes under my microscope: human faces set into the micro landscape.
