NASA’s Mars Perseverance Rover has 5 Gems on board

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – More than halfway to the Red Planet, NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover isn’t just shuttling sophisticated science instruments and tubes to be filled with Earth-bound rock samples. It’s carrying symbols, mottos, and objects that range from practical to playful – everything from meteorite fragments to chips carrying the names of 10.9 million people.

The “extras” are part of a tradition that harks back to the early space age and is now called “festooning” in NASA lingo.

NASA's Perseverance Mars rover is "festooned" with a variety of objects that serve both decorative and functional purposes, from commemorative placards to a slice of Martian meteorite that earlier rode aboard the space station to a sundial. (NASA/JPL-Caltech)
