The wonderful new view of the Antennae Galaxies in Collision was discovered recently by the Hubble telescope.
The photo was represented on the web by top websites as National Geographic and Astronomy Picture of the Day.
None of them had mentioned its similarity to the human face, which is so striking.
This is although the attribution of human characteristics to animals and inanimate is very typical to the human race and may grow with the progress of artificial intelligence.
Almost any Astronomical discovery receives an anthropomorphic nickname, but very few have similarity to Anatomy and 'Mars Face' reflects the interest in this issue.
