Mars 2020 Rover Perseverance
In 2020/2021, my closest friends & family each travelled 504,668,791 km (313 million miles) together (well at least our names did).
Believe in Science!
I’m so honored and proud that our names are physically on the red planet now.
Congratulations and thank you NASA!!
During a tiny window of opportunity in early 2020 to enter the lottery and submit names, thanks to both Asian time zone, and use of VPN’s NASA, confirmed my securing 10 names to be micro engraved on the Mars 2020 Rover Perseverance.
Three of these departed this earthly world already (my mother, ex RAF, who always dreamed of space flight, DJ’s grandmother BABA (Cassie Boyachuk), and my close friend, film director Ryan Chen You Kang who passed away of cancer while the mission was underway), but they join the rest of us in eternity on the outside casing of the Mars 2020 Rover Perseverance near the front right wheel.
