Remind yourself to Dare Mighty Things every day with this lightweight acrylic pendant necklace depicting the Mars Perseverance Rover's landing parachute and its secret binary encoded message.
We have Landed!
On February 18, 2021, NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) used the world's coolest supersonic parachute to land the Perseverance rover on the surface of Mars.
As if that wasn't achievement enough, those wonderful tricksters at JPL put an encoded secret message in the pattern of the parachute.
The parachute had a red and white pattern - which was a message in binary code that read: Dare Mighty Things on the inner rings. (Which is JPL's motto). And the outer ring says JPL: 34°11’58” N 118°10’31” W. Which is the geolocation coordinates for the JPL Lab.
Great gift for lovers of space exploration, science fiction, mars, NASA, JPL, astronomy, science, computer science, and engineering.
Fun as a teacher's gift.
Makes a great stocking stuffer.
Discs are approximately 1" around, clear acrylic with either white or red acrylic paint filling in the binary message code.
Necklace includes 18" sterling silver chain
*Any definition of Mighty applies here. We understand that sometimes just getting the potato chip bag open is a mighty feat worthy of awards and accolades. We totally have days like that too.
