This was actually bigger than the Perseverance rover landing on Mars. Daft Punk was arguably the band of EDM & produced among the greatest house music of all time. Known for One More Time, Harder Better Faster Stronger, Robot Rock, Get Lucky & more. On February 22nd 2021, they announced their breakup after 28 years on a YouTube video titled Epilogue. They were the Beatles of EDM. Dance music will never be the same again & there won't be another band like them. Long live Daft Punk.

18 Perseverance Rover Landing on Mars

NASA made such epic history landing the Perseverance rover on Mars after a 7+ month trip. They landed it the same way they landed Curiosity (back in 2012) & it was 7 minutes of terror leading to the landing yet it took ~11.5 minutes for the signal to travel from Mars to Earth (given Mars was ~11.5 light minutes away from Earth at the time). Perseverance plans on looking for signs of life on Mars which would be unbelievably historic news for all of us.
