PHOTOS: Stunning aerial footage of Southwestern United States looks like a Martian landscape

This incredible aerial footage of Southwestern United States makes the country's terrain look like the planet Mars. In early April, Andrew Studer, 23, from Portland, Ore., flew his drone over barren land in Arizona and Utah as model Kyle Hague walked through it wearing a spacesuit. The complete absence of vegetation, the dunes and the dim ocher color of the landscape made this stretch of American country strikingly resemble that of the Red Planet. Studer said: “This project was inspired by my admiration for the incredibly dynamic and unique landscapes in the American Southwest."
