Send Your Name to the Moon!


NASA is making it so you can submit your name to be digitally added to a microchip that will be placed within The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

"The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is the first mission in NASA's Vision for Space Exploration, a plan to return to the moon and then to travel to Mars and beyond. LRO will launch in late 2008 with the objectives to finding safe landing sites, locate potential resources, characterize the radiation environment, and demonstrate new technology."

I submitted mine. I really don't see what the benefits are of having a microchip containing your name orbit the moon. But who cares, it takes a second to do and I know I won't be taking any trips into space within my lifetime so it's cool to know my name will be up there forever.
