Mars Memes are flooding Twitter after NASA’s Perseverance Rover landed on the red planet.
On Thursday (February 18th), history was made as NASA’s Rover touched down on Mars.
It’s the largest, most-advanced rover that has ever been sent to another planet, and it took 203 days for it to make the 293 million-mile journey.
After landing on the planet, the robot sent back its first image of Mars, a black and white photo displaying its dusty and barren surface.
Whilst it is a triumphant achievement for NASA, the image was pretty unexciting. So, internet users have turned it into a meme.
Here are some of the best first image on Mars memes…
The ‘Bernie on Mars’ meme takes over Twitter
As the rover landed on Mars, social media users knew exactly what they needed to do. Put Bernie on Mars!
Back in January, a photo of Bernie Sanders sitting at Joe Biden’s Inauguration went viral on Twitter. In the image, he sat on a chair on his own, wearing a huge pair of mittens, and internet users thought it was totally hilarious.
People then cropped the image and turned it into a meme by placing Bernie in a number of different locations. The trend completely took over social media, and just as everyone thought the Bernie Sanders meme was well and truly over, it’s back.
Bernie has now been placed on Mars, and he’s going viral again.
