Send Your Name to the Moon

Now, your name can go to the moon! The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is inviting everyone to send join the ambitious "Send Your Name to the Moon" project. The deadline to submit your name is June 27, 2008.

How it is possible? As a part of NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) mission, your name will be included with all the other submitted names in a large database and placed on a microchip that will be integrated onto the spacecraft.

The NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft is expected to be launched before the end of 2008. It is the first mission of the Lunar Precursor Robotic Program (LPRP), a series of unmanned missions to Moon that NASA is planning. These missions will help in future human missions of Moon that will begin in 2010.
