I'd love to have that first one as my desktop background. Any chance there's a high-resolution version available? No? Sigh.

From the photo, I had a sudden fantasy of being a slightly deranged billionaire who funded a Martian lander project whose only purpose was to carve and polish the red rocks into enormous half spheres, and then stand them on end, thus creating the first works of sculpture on another world.

This is a beautiful piece.

Pointless flash interface. Ooh! Look at me! Hover your mouse over the pictures to make them look a tiny bit larger and brighter!

It's the first law of art websites:
The better the art the shitter the user interface.

The via Wired link may be the best way to look at some of these, actually.

One day these will be made in situ with a camera. Ponder on that.

I'ms guessing those full-body suits the Martians are wearing are inspired by the thermskins the future-Earthers wear in Dan Simmons Ilium.
