The NASA Insight Mars Lander, which will be launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in March 2016, will have a special inscription on two chip plates that will be attached to the spacecraft. The inscription will read “Long Beach, CA – Incorporated 1897”, meaning that the name of Long Beach will be going to Mars during this historic trip! Thank you to Jerry Stoces who has been working on the Insight Mars Lander and who is very proud to be taking Long Beach to Mars!
