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

Internet sleuths claim to have “cracked a code” hidden in images from the Mars rover’s landing last week. Colored patterns in the parachute used for landing appears to have been secretly inscribed with the phrase “Dare mighty things,” a motto used by the Perseverance team at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, which serves as mission control for the Perseverance rover mission. Also embedded in the message are the geographic coordinates for JPL:  34°11’58” N 118°10’31” W.
