Many were able to appreciate the parachute that worked while landing. However, the latter There was a hidden message, As announced by NASA during a pre-broadcast conference. On Twitter on February 23, Adam Steldser, an engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JBL), said it was “infamous hidden news”.

How to explain the nature of the parachute symbol of perseverance?

The film, published by Adam Steltzer, shows several characters of the alphabet The intention to be placed in a random place, Like different numbers. Famous science lawyer Emily Calendrelli has released a very clear video on the matter. He pointed out that by carefully observing the parachute, one could see vertical columns of red, white or white and red. This makes a representation possible Binary code : Red stands for 1 and white stands for 0. Horizontally, the parachute is cut into three circles starting from the center and one at the outer edge.

The reading is done this way: circles have a certain amount of red and white columns, so 1 and 0. In fact, it is a 10-bit encryption. Each circle represents a word, as each of these circles has groups of 10 columns Indicates the status of a letter In binary code.
