(CNN)A video shared by NASA on Monday revealed the first-ever look at a spacecraft landing on Mars -- and the internet was quick to take up a challenge to decode a message hidden in the parachute of the Perseverance rover.

"You might notice the pattern that's on the parachute here," said Allen Chen, the entry, descent and landing lead for the rover, on Monday.

The parachute's hidden message includes the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory motto, "Dare mighty things," as well as GPS coordinates for JPL in Pasadena, California.

The messages were included in the parachute using binary code within the white and orange gores, or triangles of fabric.

Ian Clark, the rover's systems engineer, was the mastermind behind the binary code pattern on the parachute.
