NASA will be sending another rover to Mars next years called Mars 2020. Though it will be a few years until a human sets foot on Mars, NASA is offering people a chance to send in their names. People who take the chance will be getting a souvenir boarding pass to Mars.
An ARMY decided to do something special for BTS‘s V and sent in the idol’s real name “Kim Taehyung“! The fan did it as an early birthday gift for V. Now even the aliens will know of V!
Taehyungie's name is going to mars!
It will be launched in July 17 2020 from Cape Canaveral Launch Pad and would be landing on expected date of Feb 18 2021 at Jezero Crater on Mars.#BTSV #taehyung #BTS @BTS_twt pic.twitter.com/efyf7LAlZC

Additionally, another fan also submitted the name of V’s dog, Yeontan! Both father and son will be making their way to Mars!
I sent Tannie’s name too. This Pomeranian and his owner have quite literally, a universal presence ^^ pic.twitter.com/ARv2imK9gF
