Every Android Easter egg and how to find it

There are a ton of little nods in the Android OS to consumers and the developer community. One of the longest-running gags is the venerable Android Easter egg. What is an Android Easter egg?

The hole was discovered by chance in 2011 on images of the dusty slopes of Mars' Pavonis Mons volcano taken by the HiRISE instrument aboard the robotic Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter currently circling Mars. The hole, shown in representative color, appears to be an opening to an underground cavern, partly illuminated on the image right. Analysis of this and follow-up images revealed the opening to be about 35 meters across, while the interior shadow angle indicates that the underlying cavern is roughly 20 meters deep.

Holes such as this are of particular interest because their interior caves are relatively protected from the harsh surface of Mars , making them relatively good candidates to contain Martian life . These pits are therefore prime targets for possible future spacecraft, robots , and even human
