We are in the desert in the middle east.    :lol:

Wonder if it will bump into the robot that landed there back in the 1999??

The parachute used by the Mars Perseverance rover has been found to contain a clever hidden message.

https://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/news/344172/hidden-message-found-on-mars-parachute

I find this hard to believe.  There is not enough room on that parachute to spell out anything in binary that could be converted to 3 words using ascii characters.

Just as an example the first letter in ascii 068 (capital D) = 1000100 in binary or 100 ( lower case D) = 1100100 in binary.  There are 16 letters and each ascii character is 7 digits in binary, so figure out how you could fit that on a parachute in a way that could be read from a photograph that does not show the whole inside of the parachute.

Why? It's patterned in either a descending or ascending circle. That's obvious, and is easily enough to contain that message.

If the photograph showed the whole parachute, but there are some angles that are missing.  And how do you distinguish how wide the ones and zeros are?  This is something made up OR it was leaked from NASA and the photo does not really show it well enough for any nerd to figure it out.

Do you think they spent millions of dollars inventing this parachute...

...and then, they decided to spend just a little bit more money on an attractive (but meaningless) design?

Here is the reddit link in the Guardian article that explains how they came to their conclusion.

Yeah, it's real!

This article explains how the code worked, and shows the parachute decoded.

Only Russian collusion is ok even after 4 years of it.

The message wasn't hidden, NASA told everyone about it, and what it meant.
Easter egg, maybe...'hidden message'? That's a bit melodramatic.

So no nerd figured it out, NASA explained it.   There is no way someone looking at that picture could have deciphered it, even with prior knowledge that it was there.

Wow, you are onto it, DR. A little self promotion gets you a bigger audience and bigger budget. ha HA

Look at the free publicity they got from this, and now, people will be "looking for hidden messages" in everything NASA does.

BRILLIANT!! :cat:

I spent some time translating the ascii codes in to binary.   I am a nerd.   :lol:
