Rolling Stones "Rock" On Mars

At last week's Rolling Stones Rose Bowl Concert, actor Robert Downey Jr. (a.k.a. Iron Man) took the stage to announce that a rock on Mars had been named for the band by NASA's Mars InSight lander team. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), a division of Caltech, manages InSight for NASA. JPL is located about three miles away from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
