NASA Lets You Send Your Name to Mars

NASA now gives anyone the opportunity to send their name to Mars. Just enter your name, country and zip code into the form, and your name – along with many others – will be included in a microchip on the Mars Science Laboratory rover which will be heading to Mars in 2011.

NASA has actually done this before, for example, you could have sent your name to Mars with the Phoenix rover. However, now that this has been found by, I’m afraid that that list of names sent to Mars will be an odd one indeed. First of all, there’s no captcha, and the form accepts nearly anything, even very long entries.
