Perseverance's Parachute Code
Perseverance's Parachute Code The illustration on the right shows a diagram overlaid on the parachute deployed during the descent of the Mars Perseverance rover (shown on the left). Systems engineer Ian Clark used a binary code to spell out 'Dare Mighty Things' in the orange and white strips of the parachute. He also included the GPS coordinates for the mission's headquarters at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. NASA/JPL-Caltech/The Associated Press
