NASA's Perseverance Mars rover will carry 10.9 million names to Red Planet : Read more
Wondering what the actual projected longevity of the engraved names and essays on the placard are estimated to be as the names and essays are microscopically engraved and will be bombarded by cosmic rays, hard UV, micro-meteorites, and potentially corrosive compounds on Martian surface. Going thru that much trouble (and extra flight weight), it would be a shame if it is only survivable for a few years, instead of centuries. Anyone?

This is one of the dumbest things to do...who will read those names ?
do you think the aliens will use our language and our mode of communication ?
THis is the biggest foolish idea to assume life forms if present in the universe will be replica of ours....The big idiots tell the small idiots the same thing....instead use that effort to probe some thing else....
No wondor NASA uses billions of dollars for such wasteful research...
