Ok, this is an unpaid advertisement for NASA’s new campaign.
Basically, they are about to send a new spacecraft “Orion” to Mars by the end of 2014. It’s a fascinating project which you can learn more about at http://www.nasa.gov/orion/ . However, there is a special service onboard. Orion is going to carry a big list of name, in the form of microchips, with it to Mars. NASA is currently inviting you (all of you, really) to submit your names to be carried by Orion.
If you feel exciting about all this and really want to go to Mars (just only your name is better than none), you can go ahead and submit your name at http://mars.nasa.gov/participate/send-your-name/orion-first-flight/ . The deadline for this flight is 31 October 14 so don’t be late for the trip!
Me? I’m going. You can view my boarding pass here.
