The United States of America has gone through some rough patches lately, with the recent Presidential elections. However, our country seemed to have completely missed a major scientific achievement.
Ever since 20th Century Fox produced the movie, The Martian, starring Matt Damon; NASA has been furiously working to put a man on Mars. "If Matt Damon can do it, so can we!" NASA's administrator Charlie Bolden boldly stated.
The Martian was a science fiction film released in October of 2015, the year before the 2016 presidential election. With corrupt news sources focusing fully on the election, it seemed that no one realized the amazing work being done by NASA.
Just today, NASA announced that their ship the, DAMON has landed on Mars along with the following individuals:
- Elon Musk
- Bill Nye
- Mark Armstrong
- Neil Degrasse Tyson
- Carolyn Stephens
These individuals are the first people to land on Mars, now that the election is over NASA hopes that the world can focus on the more important things. Like the fact WE MADE IT TO FREAKING MARS.
