NASA’s Perseverance has a little ‘family portrait’ Easter egg

In 1972, astronaut Charles Duke left a family portrait on the moon. Now, almost 50 years later, another NASA employee keeps its own family close.

The Perseverance rover made its monumental landing on Mars on Feb. 18 and it has already sent thousands of raw images back to Earth. Hidden in photos of the rover itself is a “bumper sticker” with icons of NASA’s previous Mars rover missions, Space pointed out. 

The rovers are lined up in chronological order: Sojourner, 1997; Spirit and Opportunity, 2004; Curiosity, 2012; Perseverance, 2021; and the Ingenuity helicopter, which rode along with Perseverance. NASA tweeted out a video detailing the “family portrait” plaque: 

Dr. Moogega Cooper, planetary protection engineer for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, also shared a photo of the plaque before it was affixed to Perseverance: 

In the short time that it’s been on Mars, Perseverance has not only provided a 360-view of the red planet, but it’s also recorded first-ever audio. Soon, Perseverance will start looking for ancient life. Already making its family proud!

  5. I oversee a vape store web directory and we have had a posting from a vape store in the United States that additionally markets CBD items. A Calendar month later, PayPal has contacted use to say that our account has been limited and have requested us to remove PayPal as a payment method from our vape store directory site. We do not offer CBD products such as CBD oil. We simply provide marketing and advertising professional services to CBD companies. I have had a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Top Health and wellness Store and if you take a good peek, you will see that they offer a surprisingly considerable variety of CBD items, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement solution. It seems that PayPal is applying twos sets of rules to different companies. As a result of this stipulation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related website. This has restrained my payment choices and now, I am greatly dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have sought advice from a solicitor from a Magic Circle law office in The city of london and they explained that what PayPal is undertaking is entirely against the law and inequitable as it ought to be applying a systematic benchmark to all companies. I am yet to consult with yet another lawyer from a US law practice in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be very appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
