Send your name to the moon

! Warning: this post hasn't been updated in over three years and so may contain out of date information.

NASA is inviting people to send their names to the moon on-board their Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), which is due to launch later this year. Go to this page before June 27th 2008, submit your name and you are done. As an added bonus, kids (and me!) get a lovely certificate to show their name will be carried to the moon on a chip on-board the LRO.

Name to the moon certificate

I have no idea what the point of this is. But I think it’s a bit of fun and thought I’d share it. By the way, do not fill out your name if your are worried about Martians stealing your identity… 😉
