Even though we have had to curtail our performance plans this summer due to the pandemic, Tilted Axes: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars is still very excited to be a part of the upcoming launch of the Mars rover Perseverance.
Along with many other supporters, our name is engraved on the silicon chip that the rover will take with it on its mission. Hopefully, we can still musically observe its landing on Mars in February 2021.
The launch itself from Earth will take place no sooner than July 30 details TBA by NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
