Re: You can vote to put Mars on the cover of - National Geographic

[color=#000000:post_uid14]Voting is going well...

The breakdown is now: Mars cover: 2425, others 449 and 1520

Note that the artwork is by Kees Veenenbos, so it's probably computer-rendered? (He has some great Mars scenery CGI artwork on his site....)[/color:post_uid14]
