Love is said to be the strongest force in the universe, and it is the only things that binds us together. But, is it really true? As people celebrated Valentine’s Day on Earth, an astronaut shared a spectacular collage of little hearts found on planet Mars claiming that it truly is!

“Happy Valentine’s Day, from hearts on Mars, to you,” Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield wrote on Twitter. With more than 6,300 retweets and 15,000 likes, at the time of writing, his post stole many hearts in the online space, and left them in wonder about the beauty and magic of the universe.

Before you put your thinking caps on, let us clarify that it isn’t a recent picture. The same photo floated on social media four years ago on February 14 after Hadfield posted and captioned it: Mars sends love to us all on Valentine’s Day – hearts abounding from the romantics at @NASAJPL!”

However, he was not the only one to do so. “Happy Valentine’s Day! Here are two ‘hearts’ on but there are actually more across the planet – search for them as a fun Valentine’s Day activity,” a tweet from Ferguson Planetarium read along with two breathtaking snapshots from Mars.

Many others responded with photos of the heart shape spotted on the surface of Pluto.

Meanwhile, others replied with sweet tweets and quirky witticisms. Read some reactions here.
