Response to Autumn (Reply #1)

3. We spend billions of dollars on Mars exploration.

But sometimes the US Mars program loses sight of how important naturalistic imagery is. The probes are overwhelmingly just designed to take images of scientific relevance rather than inspiring "celestial portraiture."

So, mostly black and white images of sand dunes and craters, pretty much. But NASA archives are wide open, so feel free to comb them:
