send your name to the moon

“Fly me to the moon
And let me play among the stars”

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is a new NASA probe that’s going to spin around our Moon in low polar orbit for a year, and then voyage on to Mars, and beyond. If you’d like to have your name added to the manifest of the craft, then fill in the simple online form. For those of you with children I thought it might be something cool they’d enjoy – you can print out a Certificate of Participation as a memento.

Tomorrow is the deadline if you want your name imprinted on a microchip that will float among the stars.
