The space agency paid tribute to the band as they touched down on the red planet.

Green Day hit incredible new heights as they announced to fans that they have "landed on mars" as part of NASA's current mission to study the planet.

Turns out, the legendary band have a strange connection to the space agency's latest journey as the phrase 'Green Day since 1986' was etched on a chip on the InSight (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) Lander which succesfully touched down on Mars yesterday (November 26th).

The band celebrated the news on Twitter, along with a photo to prove this isn't an elaborate space-based hoax:

 

Incredible scenes.

For you science fans out there, the Lander will now deploy a seisometer and burrow a heat probe into the planet's core in order to discover more about how it was formed. The more you know...

Green Day, meanwhile, were recently spotted in the rehearsal studio playing 'Dookie' in its entirety which we would argue is equally important work.
