Are you one in a million? fun fact

It's old news but still if you did not know, well it's
to know



Notice: Stardust was launched on February 7, 1999 carrying the two microchips. Two copies of each chip were installed on the spacecraft (for a total of four chips). Two of the microchips (#1 & #2) are inside the Sample Return Capsule, and was returned back to Earth with the capsule when it landed in Utah on January 15, 2006. The capsule along with the microchips have been transported to the curation facility at Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas on January 17, 2006, where they currently reside. The other two chips are on the spacecraft body and will remain in space forever.

Below, we have a listing of all of the names submitted and that have been inscribed onto the microchips. The names are sorted alphabetically by last name for easy lookup. Note that there are two lists, so if you don't find your name in one list, be sure to check the other list.

To the genealogy people: we've been receiving a lot of inquiries from people researching their family trees and have who have discovered our microchip name listings. The names on the microchip were collected as a public outreach effort. We do not have any information or background on any of the people whose names were submitted, nor do we have any way of contacting these people

Optimus Prime is on the second one. I'm not, though...but, then, I knew I wouldn't be, 'cause I didn't submit my name.
My name's on the Phoenix lander, though, that went to Mars a few years ago.

I looked at both, I'm not one either
Maybe some donation had to be made to get a name on the list. Not sure. There were several with my last name but non sounded familiar.

I'm kind of on the the first chip. My first initial and last name is there. I'm actually called by my middle name. My middle initial and last name is listed, too.

My middle (called) name is on the second chip. It is spelled differently.

I was amazed at the number of entries on the second chip with my last name. It is kinda rare from my experience. none seem to be related to me though.

The doctor and the TARDIS floating around too ?
Pretty cool though in my case, I'd doubt it.

Sure as ish, my distant family made it onto Chip 2. They don't know about it though... so, ponder how they got submitted?

Heh, my name is on both of them, though much more likely the one on the second chip is actually mine.

My name is on the first chip. I did not check the second one. Thanks for letting me know. I believe I may have heard something years ago but forgot about it. I do remember getting something in the mail indicating my name is on a chip on the first rover that was sent to Mars. I read something about JPL made a lot of extra chips. If aliens invade here, they'll probably be looking for me stating that my name was printed plainly on the invading spacecraft. In that case, I'll just say, I don't know how it got there.

I'm on chip # 2, pretty sure I remember who submitted it for me back then but it's been a long time. Thanks for the link.

There is no way my name went, there are only 13 households in the world directly related to me that have our name.
