NASA Named A Mars Rock After THE ROLLING STONES - And ROBERT DOWNEY JR. Announced It!
Earlier today, Robert Downey Jr. took to Twitter to tease a collaboration with NASA and The Rolling Stones!
NASA jumped on the Iron Man star's tweet and wrote “Can’t get no satisfaction till you know what this is all about? Stay tuned!”

And of course, the rock legends also joined the conversation!
After “bubbling with anticipation” as RDJ said, we finally found out what it's all about. A rock in Mars was named after the legendary band!
The "Rolling Stones Rock" is a rock that NASA's InSight lander inadvertently captured rolling across the surface of the red planet last year. The actor who played Tony Stark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe shared the news onstage before the Stones performed at the Rose Bowl. Yup, it was "the most ambitious crossover announcement in space"!
