Here's an astonishingly clever Disney animation depicting hypothetical plants and animals on the surface of Mars. (One of my favorites is the organic flying saucer that fries its prey before enveloping the carcass.)

Mars animation

Here's a vision of the future of Mars exploration I can live with. Note the alien ruins (?) near the end.

This sure beats "Godzilla."

The always-amazing Pink Tentacle has the rest of the saga.

Better late than never

This has been making the rounds -- and for good reason.

Desktop publishing gets funky.

A CGI desktop printer achieves rudimentary sentience and undergoes a Cronenbergian metamorphosis:

I acquired the footage below only at great difficulty, as NASA is inexplicably intent on denying its existence (if not outright destruction of the original film stock). Make of it what you will.

Now this is more like it . . .

A Fleet of Atomic-Electric Space Ships Embark For Mars, 1957

The spaceships (conceptualized by Ernst Stuhlinger and Werner von Braun) were 500 feet in diameter and powered by electricity generated by the atomic reactor carried in the tail. This meant they could operate continuously over a period of years. Each carried a small landing craft for descent to the Martian surface, and had quarters for 20 men (in 1957, there was no mention of female astronauts).
