In 1947, American Sculpture Isamu Noguchi designed but never executed a face formed by huge mounds of sand. It was meant to be a  Sculpture to be Seen from Mars, visible only from outer space; the nose was to be projected one mile high.

Had it been realized, it’s what the Antares Rocket, scheduled to launch this evening at 6:19 ET IF all goes well and the skies are clear, would see on the way to the International Space Station. The rocket itself will be viewable from South Carolina to Massachusetts.
