Robert Downey Jr. Brings on the Stones

Actor Robert Downey Jr. took the stage at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California before the Rolling Stones concert last night to tell the crowd that NASA has honored the Glimmer Twins with a "Rolling Stones Rock" on Mars.

The Stones said in a statement, "What a wonderful way to celebrate the 'Stones No Filter' tour arriving in Pasadena. This is definitely a milestone in our long and eventful history. A huge thank you to everyone at NASA for making it happen."

The rock, which is just a bit larger than a golf ball, rolled approximately three feet on November 26th, 2018, when it was propelled by the thrusters of the Insight spacecraft when it touched down on Mars.

Here's the video of Downey's announcement. I've also posted a video of the Stones opener last night, "Street Fighting Man."
