Tribal Gothic is going to Mars - Again!

In late May and then again in early June of 2003, two separate Mars Rovers were launched on a 7 1/2 month journey to the surface of Mars. The first Rover landed on the Martian surface around January 2, 2004 and the second one around January 20, 2004. The two rovers — MER-A Spirit and MER-B Opportunity, have been making news ever since. Each Martian Rover contained a DVD with individual names submitted to NASA. Thus, Tribal Gothic has been on Mars (in digital form) since 2004.

The new Mars mission also allowed for the option to send your name on a Microchip to Mars. NASA's Mars Science Laboratory rover is heading to Mars in 2011.  Tribal Gothic will once again be digitally heading to mars!
