NASA hid a secret message on the parachute that landed its Perseverance rover down on the floor of Mars final week.

Web sleuths declare to have “cracked a code” hidden in photos from the Mars rover’s landing last week. Coloured patterns within the parachute used for touchdown seems to have been secretly inscribed with the phrase “Dare mighty issues,” a motto utilized by the Perseverance at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, which serves as mission management for the Perseverance rover mission. Additionally embedded within the message are the geographic coordinates for JPL:  34°11’58” N 118°10’31” W.
