Nasa is taking reservations to send your name to Mars on its next flight to the red planet! Just fill out the form with information for yourself or your child to have the name included. Over 23 million reservations have already been created worldwide! 😱
Once signed up, you can log in at any time and view your board pass here. You’ll also have the ability to print your boarding pass if you wish. Once approved, your name will fly on a future NASA mission to Mars in the mid-2020s. The spacecraft hasn’t been identified yet though.
If you had signed up in the past, you already have a Frequent Flyer Account. You can log in here to see all the flights your name has been a part of, check how many frequent flyer miles you have accumulated and see which patches you have earned.
Wondering how all these names are sent to Mars? Last time around, a placard commemorating NASA’s “Send Your Name to Mars” campaign was installed on the Perseverance Mars rover at Kennedy Space Center. The placard had 3 fingernail-sized chips affixed to the upper-left corner which contained the names of 11 million people who participated. They were individually stenciled onto the chips by an electron beam. WOW!
