Rolling Stones rock the Rose Bowl and Mars

The Rolling Stones not only played the Rose Bowl on Thursday night, they landed on Mars. NASA/JPL announced that it has named a rock on the red planet after the band. It's called "Rolling Stones Rock."

The Stones said in a statement, "What a wonderful way to celebrate the 'Stones No Filter' tour arriving in Pasadena. This is definitely a milestone in our long and eventful history. A huge thank you to everyone at NASA for making it happen."

The rock, which is just a bit larger than a golf ball, rolled approximately three feet on November 26th, 2018, when it was propelled by the thrusters of the Insight spacecraft when it touched down on Mars.
