Extravagant visiting an alien earth? Perfectly, Mars, 1 of our closest celestial neighbours, is approximately a staggering 225 million kilometres absent from Earth – a journey that would take you around 1,000 a long time to wander.
But really don’t go reaching for your room boots just but: there is loads on planet Earth that seems definitely Martian. At least, that is what we can explain to from the winner of this year’s Royal Modern society Publishing Pictures Competition. Even though it seems to be like a photo of further-terrestrial plants, it actually reveals a cluster of smile moulds rising in a leafy garden in the United Kingdom (see impression beneath).
But it’s not the only staggering photo in this collection, which paperwork unusual scientific phenomena. Scroll down under to see a real-existence crystal forest, a temporal crack, and a jellyfish elevator.
