Send your name to Mars

Stephanie_in_TNOctober 20, 2002

You can put your name on the next mission to Mars. Came across this while DS and I were exploring nasa.org this evening (a really cool way to completely lose track of time!).

NASA is planning a Mars Exploration mission in 2003, with twin rovers to explore the surface.

On those rovers, they are sending a DVD with millions of names. It's a novelty, but you can put your name, or child's name, heck the whole family's names on that DVD - be a small part of the mission to Mars.

When you sign up to do this (and IT'S FREE!!!) you can even print a certificate with the name and a certification number, NASA signature and stamp.. and everything.

Did I mention, IT'S FREE! But the deadline is November 15, 2002.

Thought the all the parents and teachers here would have a use for this information.

Here is a link that might be useful: Send your name to Mars
