Send your name to Mars!

You might not be able to visit the Red Planet, but you can send your name on the next mission. The InSight project could carry your name on a microchip to live forever on the surface of Mars. Don't get left behind!

You have until September 8 to add your name to a silicon microchip that will be on NASA's InSight Mars lander when it launches next year. NASA's done this before, sending 1.38 million people's names on a chip on the Orion spacecraft's first flight last December. Orion will eventually take astronauts to deep space, including an asteroid and Mars itself.

When you sign up, you get a pretty cool "boarding pass" from NASA. Check it out:
