News, Martian Style

One of the most famous (infamous?) photos of Mars is the rock formation that looks like a face in the Cydonia region. The Mars Express probe has imaged the area in high resolution stereo, resulting in some very nice photos.

Meanwhile Opportunity, the American rover probe that just keeps going has reached the lip of Victoria Crater. The rover was expected to have only a month or two of active life, but it has now been in operation over one thousand days.
