Apparently NASA hid a secret message in the pattern of the rover parachute.
>>
its outer space pizzagate codes
>>
>>12742763
this is really good for us actually. the only reason to do that would be to communicate to the martians who this equipment is coming from so that the martians can tell its friendly US as opposed to some enemy nation. This means US is already allies with the martians and other nations aren't.

>>12742763
yeah, it says: "OP is a faggot retard bitch"

that pattern is for machine vision, since the re entry and landing is autonomous, the probe has to evaluate if the chute has opened correctly, or has tangled and folded or just not correctly flared. it might have had a secondary ballistic chute if this one failed to deploy correctly. in case of a complete mission loss in case of a chute failure, you can use computer vision to recreate the condition of the chute in a simulation, the pattern helps the computer to recreate the condition by comparing it to the expected one as in the picture. its like a fiducial marker on a parachute

Watch the press conference. They specifically said they put the message in the parachute
>>
>>12742994
well yeah, you can encode messages in fiducial markers. they are just qr codes

Really?

I thought it might be morse code with colors representing dashes dots and spaces.

Here's a printout of the binary code. All rows start at the same offset. From outer to inner ring. In clockwise direction. I haven't started to decode.

00001000100000001011000011101000000011100001110110000000101000000111110000010111
00011111111111111111000001010000000010000000001001000000111000000001110000010011
00000101000000011001000111111111111111110000001101000000100100000001110000001000
00000001000000000001000001001000000001010001111111111111111111111111111111111111

Don't know yet if its the correct offset or the correct direction, or the correct order.

>>12742763
not a simple binary. Maybe compressed or something, like a fingerprint. Could just be different 8-bit binary representations or something. Dunno.
It's possible the code is read inward and not clockwise/counterclockwise? So 3-bit messages or something. 3-bit sounds like some form of codon if so (so a peptide sequence?)
Maybe it's more simple than that.

@FrenchTech_paf: @NASAPersevere @NASA My father and I found these three words hidden in the patterns of the lander's parachute !

>dare mighty things
Something about that grammar is abrasive.
>>
>>12742763
I decoded it, it says "Search Scat Rule 34 on google" for the next step
>>

Dare mighty, things.

It says 'the cake is a lie'.
>>
>>12742763
what are those half trapezoids with a curve on the other end shapes called
>>
>>12743086
how do you know where to start with the binary code(000010001...etc)....plus how can you tell what the structure is in the centre of the parachute
>>
>The outer ring are GPS coordinates 34d 11m 58s N 118d 10m 31s W. The start of the message is the block of 1s and each word has an end delimiter. The next word picks up on the same place on the successive ring.

Someone do a loss edit

>>12745758
Are those coordinates for earth or for mars?
>>
>>12746337
Earth. I believe it's the coordinates for the JPL laboratory.

NASA is looking for machine elves on Mars

hahahaha

Looks like the old grey code to me.

Pretty nice CGI on this one
Great work WETA!!!!!!

wtf I love NASA now

Junior Space Cadets, can you decode the secret message?
