And my personal connection. As we all know by now, NASA recently launched a mission to Mars, and I'm so proud to say that I have a direct connection to the Perseverance Rover. In that, the names of my Son, and my Grandson are engraved on a plaque on the chassis of the rover. (Along with the names of another 10,932,293 names of people that participated) But who cares. The names of my progeny will be forever immortalised on a peice of 21st century technology that will languish in desolate isolation for millenia, until discovered by travellers from the distant points of other galaxies. The names (almost 11 million of them) are contained on three small plaques, each approximately the size of a fingernail, so the travellers from the distant future better have a bloody big magnifying glass to see them!
