NASA Names Rolling Stones Rock On Mars

The Rolling Stones have had a rock on Mars named after them by NASA!

The team behind NASA’s InSight lander bestowed the honour on the band following the spacecraft touching down on the Red Planet back in November 2018. It became an area of focus for NASA after the rock appeared to roll around three feet — the farthest NASA has seen a rock roll while landing a spacecraft on another planet!

They, therefore, decided to name it ‘Rolling Stones Rock’ and Robert Downey Jr. made the special announcement at their show at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena last night!
