Add a few plants or maybe a dog fence and Mars would look a lot like Australia.

But in Australia there is always the hope of Olivia Newton-John walking by.

No Fosters on Mars...bad
No Vegemite on Mars...good

What's that Ute doing there on that ridge line in the backgound!

No doubt the citizens of the red planet write into the Martian Morning Herald to declare how ashamed they are to be martian in light of the way refugees from earth are treated.

Hang up a tennis net and you've got Roland Garros.

Have you ever driven Interstate 40 through New Mexico? When I saw the pics of Mars, it was deja vu!

Why add plants and a dog fence? Just a few more rocks and that pic's a dead solid ringer for the Red Planet.

No remote sign in America would be without bullet holes. What's up with you Australians?

Call that Mars? There are stretches near Texas' Big Bend that make this look like a Maxfield Parrish painting.

Looks like some parts of the Galapagos, but flatter and a different color.

That rocks in sand thing is a pretty popular fashion.

Yeah, but unlike Australia, there is still hope of finding water on Mars.

Looks like Australia and doesn't have Bob Brown. I'd move there!
