Here’s how it works:
- Enter your name on the NASA site and a few other details on the site located here.
- Your name will make the outer space trip on a silicone microchip aboard the InSight lander when it lands on Mars in November 2018 to explore the planet’s deep interior.
- You’ll also get a digital boarding pass, with your name on it that you can print or post online.
This fly-your-name opportunity comes with “frequent flier” points reflecting an individual’s personal participation in NASA’s exploration of Mars. These points span multiple missions and multiple decades. This new round of names will be added to a second microchip.
