Mars as you’ve never seen it before (24 photos)

Dutchman Kees Veenenbos has been featured in National Geographic for his digital rendering techniques of a beautiful and eery landscape of Mars. The images were rendered in a landscape program called Terragen.

    #9 #15 look cool as fuck

  • DemonDan

    #18 reminds me of Uranus.

    • myragehush

      I see what you did there.

    • TitoRigatoni

      Oh, everything reminds you of my anus. It was one night, it was a long time ago, and I was drunk. Get over it already!

    • fuzzybeard2016

      I'm chasing the Klingons!

  • myragehush

    Still looking for Dr. Manhattan's hideout.

    • Atom Manhattan

      I also was looking to see if there was a smiley face on the surface…

  • snoobs89

    Sooooo Mars as never seen before? but yet its not actually Mars?

  • Paula_

    Too bad Mars is no longer considered a planet since a few years.

    – the one you love to hate

    • snoobs89

      paula, you never cease to amaze me.

    • Hamayun N Hayat

      I think you're confusing it with Pluto. Mars is still the 4th Planet from the Sun. You suck at astronomy Paula.

      • snoobs89

        and so paula claims yet another victim..

        • Paula_

          – the good thing about idiots: there's so many of them!

          • Johnny Sixarms

            I hope you die in fire

      • Krystal Wulf

        Didn't think anyone was actually going to fall for that one.

        • Paula_

          Good thing there's so much bait around here 🙂

          – the one you love to hate

    • FLIPPS

      C'mon Paula…. don't you know how to use Google??

    • Necause

      That was Venus idiot!

    • analintruder

      Paula, i wanna go to Uranus

    • Nash

      Actually it's pluto that got demoted.

      'the one you love to hate' part was pretty accurate though…

      • Paula_

        Aaaaand another one takes the bait ❤

        – the one you love to hate

        • snoobs89

          i think "another one bites the dust" should be your theme tune Paula.

          – i love you because you hate

  • Umpty Scrunch

    Not impressed if they are just "digital renderings"

    • Hamayun N Hayat

      They're in fact digital renderings, but based on actual data collected under the NASA's Voyager Program & Hubble Telescope.


    These would be alot better if they were HD

  • HollarPeenYo

    Now, if you could find a way to put hot chicks on Mars than this posting would be MUTCH better!

        • Wade Wilson

          • HollarPeenYo

            LMAO… ya that showed me! You're the worst kind of nerd… that's a nerd who is also a douche. Go ahead say whatever you want in cyber space. We know you get no respect in real life…

            In real life people like me treat you like the douche you really are…
