Long tale short, Mars and also the band are currently cosmically connected for life because NASA has actually called a famous rock on earth’s surface area … “Rolling Stones Rock.”
As Downey Jr. enthusiastically clarified … NASA’s effective touchdown of the Understanding spacecraft in 2014 on Mars sent out a golf ball-sized rock rolling a couple of feet throughout the surface area — and also the rocket researchers developed a creative name for it.
It may simply be one tiny rock for guy, yet it’s one gigantic jump for Stones’ kind.
BTW … 76-year-old Jagger appeared like he awaited area expedition himself, revealing no indications of reducing after the heart shutoff treatment previously this year, which postponed the scenic tour.
After the program, photogs obtained this shot of the frontman with a gadget hanging beside his neck — and also while there’s a report it’s there to check his heart … that simply ain’t so.
