The Perseverance rover successfully landed on Mars last week – but not before delivering a secret message from NASA.
The agency says it hid a message in the red-and-white pattern of the rover’s parachute.

Of course, it didn’t take long for the internet to solve the puzzle – the message was spelled out in binary computer code, reading, “Jared Leto did it.” Just kidding. It really said, “Dare Mighty Things” – a slogan that decorates the walls of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Will NASA ever send rovers to the rest of the solar system?
