Gamers Celebrate Mars Perseverance Landing With Dumbass Memes

One small step for man, one giant leap for memekind.

On February 18, 2021, millions watched around the world as NASA successfully landed the Perseverance rover on the surface of Mars. It was a landmark moment in mankind's ongoing quest to understand and comprehend the vastness of space, and a mighty scientific achievement.

After nearly a year of drifting through space the Perseverance can begin its intended job of examining the surface of Mars for signs of life. What will it find? What might it bring back when it returns to Earth, if it can even do so successfully? I've seen enough sci-fi to know that if there are any long dormant temples on the surface of the planet, they need to stay closed. And definitely watch out for any pyramids.

For now, the world waits to see what Perseverance will discover. What to do in the meantime? Make and laugh at memes about its landing, obviously. Gamers and developers everywhere have taken advantage of this historic moment to share their own comical takes on what Perseverance will find out on the red planet, and everyone from Doomguy to the cast of Outer Wilds is present. Guess Mars is busier than we thought.

Oh, and obviously Bernie Sanders had to make an appearance. Of course he did.

As long as the Perseverance can watch out for Oblivion, it'll probably be just fine. Especially with Bernie, Doom Guy, and Samus Aran up there looking after it.
