Last Day To Send Your Name To Mars


Want to go to Mars? Today is the last day to submit your name to be etched onto a silicon chip using an electron beam. The aliens who find it better have really good eyesight because the text will be smaller than one-thousandth the width of a human hair (75 nanometers). Reportedly, more than a million names can be written on a single dime-size chip, which will be on the rover, protected by a glass cover.

The rover Launch Window is July 17 - Aug. 5, 2020 from Cape Canaveral with a Landing set for Feb. 18, 2021 at Jezero Crater, Mars.

Each person who submits a name will be issued a "boarding pass". Click Here for more info and to submit your name for the flight. Look below! Here's my boarding pass!
