War Of The Worlds
by Orson Welles, Mercury Theatre On The Air
The (in)famous radio play that put the whole America "in motion"... It was this radio cast of H. G. Wells's story about an invasion from Mars at the dawn of mass media era in 1938 that created mass hysteria and panic never again repeated in history of USA. Whole broadcast is fraught with inventive and for that time horribly realistic radio special effects done by the legendary Orson Welles and his team.

The Case for the Face
by Stanley V. McDaniel (Editor), Monica Rix Paxson (Editor)

In this book the evidence for alien artifacts on Mars is examined by renown scientists. Although our world is mainly populated with believers or disbelievers, there are also scientists. They are supposed to look at things with scientific approaches, drawing conclusions only on basis of hard evidence and logical thinking. So, what do they say about The Face?
