Ok, this isn't big news, but NASA is taking names to be placed on a microchip aboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

It may sound kind of corny, but if you have kids or know someone who does, it's actually kind of neat. Go to the link below, type in their name and then you can print a certificate that looks pretty cool. I just got one for my kids, they will get a kick out of it. The deadline is June 27, 2008.




Send Your Name to the Moon

See the Nasa Release for the full article.

Enjoy!

Sweet. I've done this before on one or two other missions. I'll have to do it for this too. Thanks for posting this.

Thanks, jra. This is the first time I've heard of them doing this. What other missions did you do this on?

I honestly can't remember, it was a few years ago. Their have been a number of missions that have done this. I found a list that had these. Selene from JAXA, Phoenix Mars lander, Dawn, New Horizons, Deep Impact, The Mars Exploration Rovers and Stardust.

Thanks for the reply, jra. I'll remember to watch for other missions to offer this. I told my teenager about it this morning and she actually thought that it was pretty cool, which is really quite rare for her since it didn't include the word "mall".

Thanks for the link! Really made my daughter's day when I gave her the certificate and explained it.

Thanks for the post, I'm glad that she enjoyed it. I think this is a great thing for kids. It makes them feel, I don't know, somehow connected to a universe that is just too large for them (or any of us for that matter) to comprehend.

Here's another that just came up. It's for the Kepler telescope which is designed to detect Earth sized planets and smaller, around other stars.

This is great, jra. Thanks for the update.


Kepler is NASA's first mission capable of detecting Earth-size and smaller planets in the habitable zone of solar-like stars. The spacecraft is planned to be launched from Kennedy Space Center in February 2009.
