Even though you won’t actually fly to Mars, you have a last chance to get your name to the red planet
NASA allows you to get your very own boarding pass to Mars; however, you need to act fast as today is the last one to submit your request. Get yours here.
All you need to do is enter your name and a few details, click enter and you are ready to go – or at least your name is.
Your name will make it to the outer space on a silicone microchip aboard the InSight lander when it lands on Mars in November 2018 to explore the planet’s interior.
You also get a digital boarding pass that has your name on it so that you can share it with your friends, providing proof that your name will indeed be there.
InSight is scheduled to launch next May from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
This is not the first time when NASA invites the public to their journey: two years ago, a batch of almost 827,000 people signed up to add their names. This new round of names is going to be added to a second microchip.
Moreover, back in 2014, a chip that carried the names of 1.38 million people flew aboard the first flight of the Orion spacecraft in 2014.
