Bad Religion Is Going To Mars!

NASA astronaut Jerry Stoces and his son Frederick are both huge Bad Religion fans. Next year Jerry will be heading into space aboard the “Lynx” spacecraft. Throughout his training Jerry tells us he was listening to Bad Religion on his I-Pod. Jerry is also working on the next NASA Mars Rover Mission and was able to add some names to a chip going on the “Curiosity” Rover which will be launching to Mars next year. Embedded in the spacecraft are the names Epitaph Records, Bad Religion, and Greg, Brett, Greg, Jay, Brian and Brooks. Needless to say, everyone at Epitaph and the guys in Bad Religion are more than thrilled - especially science fiction fan Brett.
