Have you ever wanted your name to be carried to another planet? Now is your chance!
NASA is accepting applications from people who want their names to be carried to Mars.
NASA did the same thing with their recent Perseverance mission, which landed on Mars in February and carried the names of nearly 11 million people to Mars.
A lot of people didn’t get in on the fun, so NASA is revitalizing the program.
NASA’s “Send Your Name to Mars” portal is currently open, and people can sign up to send their names to Mars on a future mission.
“Since the Mars 2020 opportunity closed, many people have since expressed interest in sending their name to Mars,” NASA said in a statement. “For those who missed the chance to fly their names on Perseverance, we want to give them the chance to sign up to fly their names on a future mission to Mars.”
Signing up to have your name on the next Mars mission is totally free. The portal requests your name, country, postal code and email address.
