The first TWEETS from MARS!

Those who know me, know that I'm a bit of a sci-fi geek (yes, I have several Star Trek tattoos). That's why it was so much fun to see history made when NASA's most advanced Mars Rover landed on the red planet after a months long journey.

It's advanced for several reasons, including the newest camera technology, the first live microphone to capture sounds on Mars...but also, the this particular space vehicle, which is officially called NASA Perseverance (nicknamed Percy by the NASA mission staff), has her own Twitter account.

Shortly after landing on Mars, "Percy" Tweeted "Hello, World. My first look at my forever home."

Love it!
