(This view of the Mars Perseverance rover’s main parachute was captured by a look-up camera during final descent to the Red Planet on Feb. 18, 2021. Using binary code, two messages were encoded in the neutral white and international-orange parachute gores (the sections that make up the canopy’s hemispherical shape). The inner portion spells out “DARE MIGHTY THINGS,” with each word located on its own ring of gores. The outer band of the canopy provides GPS coordinates for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, where the rover was built and the project is managed. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech)
