Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Green Day became a part of NASA's InSight Mars Lander when a phrase referencing the band was placed onto the spacecraft which recently touched down on the red planet.
Green Day showed on Twitter how "Green Day Since 1986" was etched onto a chip that was a part of the InSight Mars Lander. The spacecraft landed on Mars on Monday in the Elysium Planitia area.
The InSight Mars Lander is designed to drill into Mars' interior. It traveled 300 million miles over six months to reach the planet.
"Officially landed on Mars," Green Day said alongside a photo of the chip. "Out of this world."
