#NASA – “On a more cosmic note, Tilted Axes goes to Mars in 2020. Tilted Axes: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars has joined the roster of names that will be inscribed onto a silicon chip as part of the 2020 Mars rover mission. Engineers with the Microdevices Laboratory at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California will stencil all the names onto the chip with an electron beam. “This is part of a public engagement campaign to highlight missions involved with NASA’s journey from the Moon to Mars,” NASA officials wrote in a statement.

The 2020 Mars rover is scheduled to launch to the Red Planet on July 2020 and land inside the 28-mile-wide (45 kilometers) Jezero Crater. The 2,300-lb. (1,040 kilograms) rover, with its nuclear power source, will search for signs of past microbial life, study the climate and geology of Mars, and collect samples that may be returned to Earth on a future mission”. #TiltedAxes #GoesToMars
